Busti is a town in Chautauqua County, New York, United States. The population was 7,351 at the 2010 census. The town is named after Paul Busti, an official of the Holland Land Company, but its pronunciation uses a long i sound at the end, a frequent alteration in the names of several upstate New York towns. Busti residents joke about telemarketers calling the town "Busty" instead of Busti.

The Town of Busti is located at the south end of Chautauqua Lake, southwest of Jamestown, New York.
