What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Delphi Thermal Systems (GM) and the Lockport School District are the two largest employers Lockport. Manufacturing and teaching jobs are most common. People network, use classifieds and Internet to find job.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Because of the longer than usual winters, people in the Buffalo area spend a lot of time watching sports/socializing with their families and friends indoors. In the summer months, people enjoy spending time on the shores of either Lake Ontario or Lake Erie. The people of Buffalo take extreme pride in the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Don't be afraid of the rumors you hear about the harsh winters. They are longer than normal, but not necessarily any worse than any other city near the Great Lakes. (Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit etc.)
