Did buffalo live around New York in Native American times?
There were no Bison (Buffalo) in New York, or that area. Bison are nomadic grazers that travel in very large herds, as such they are not well suited to wooded areas.

Answer . In no particular order.........Hurons, Algonkians, Mohawks, Iroquois, Oneida, Seneca, Onandoga, Missisaugas. All of the above had territory in what is now New Yor…k state.. Many of them were driven out by the Americans, and they moved to what is now the Canadian Province of Ontario, and in particular to the Six Nations reserve, at Brantford, which is named after Joeseph Brant a great chief of the 6 nations confederacy. The British gave the 6 Nations land and food and protection against the raids by the Americans, who were trying to kill off the Indians so the land could be taken from them by the advancing American settlers.. In return for that protection, the 6 Nations fought as allies to the British in the war of the American revolutuion, and they were also a decisive factor in the surrender of Fort Detroit, during the war of 1812, when the U.S. commander surrendered without a shot being fired, because the Americans were so afraid of the Indians, that accompanied the British troops who had surrounded the fort..

Native Americans STILL live in New York State, so the question should be phrased in the present tense, not the past. The Onondaga, Mohawk, Seneca, Oneida, Cayuga, and Tuscaror…a reside in a wide swath of territory, from the far northeast of the state to near Buffalo, in the west. They were formerly know as the Iroquois Confederacy, a name bestowed on them by the French, but call themselves Haudenosaunee ("they are building a long house"). These nations have occupied the territory of upstate NY and parts of what is now Canada since at least the 1100s. The Haudenosaunee nations' political union and democratic government has been credited as one of the influences on the Articles of Confederation and the United States Constitution. This is debated by scholars, but it is widely acknowledged that Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson had contact with the nations and were influenced by their form of government.
They hunted, fished and practiced slash and burn agriculture.

They walked. Like all of civilization, they originated in Africa. While the oceans were frozen, there was a path between Europe and North America clear of ice. It is throug…h this path that they walked for generation upon generation. The tribes or nations were formed by groups of people deciding to settle while the others continued on. The tribes in New York simply continued their travels until they had reached that spot, and decided to settle there.
