Located in Allegany County, within Western  NY  Wilds.  

Belfast exists in the midst of Western NY Wilds.  Surrounded by beauty, our hometown sits quietly along the shore of the Genesee River and at the foot of the Alleghany Mountains; near some of the most spectacular State Parks in the nation.   We offer a classic Main Street with nearby outdoor experiences that includes green/blue trails, sweeping valley views, and abundant wildlife.


Belfast is a safe and affordable place to live, work, and play.  We have local amenities rare to similar rural hometowns, an outstanding school within town proper, and quality goods and services from our Amish community members.  With fiber-optics and a highway as our Main Street, downtown development opportunities exist for innovators.  


In Belfast, we know our neighbors . . . and we invite you to get to know us.  Come find out why we voted ourselves to be the #1 Hometown!
