Not too busy. Not too quiet. Juuust right.

Don’t appreciate the traffic snarls, noisy nights, and sky-high prices of the city.
BUT don’t want a life of suburban seclusion, too-long commutes, and nonexistent neighborhood amenities, either?

Meet Rochester, New York. Festival City. Former home to pioneers and independent thinkers such as Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass.

Here, serenity is balanced with:

Flourishing shopping centers minutes from home

Abundant eateries and bars just right for a casual meet-up with friends

Highly-ranked schools and universities

Residents that are warmer and friendlier than their downstate brethren

Almost nonexistent traffic

There’s a good reason Rochester ranks among the top places to live in New York State. Come and discover them for yourself:
