Default Camden NJ vs. Rochester NY

At least you can hot Philly from Camden, the closest thing to Rochester is another armpit town of Buffalo.

Easily Rochester. If you want to, you can live in one of the suburbs there which are very nice. Camden is also pretty ghetto in many areas, but the cost of living is the deciding factor. Upstate NY is alot less expensive

Yawn.

Rochester is a nice area. Extremely nice city neighborhoods (some bad too), and affluent suburbs relative to the region.

Don't know much about Camden, and have never been to it. Maybe after a little research I can make an opinion.

Actually, both are good and bad, for their own reasons. Rochester is actually a really cool city, albeit slightly isolated, depsite the ferry to Toronto. Camden is located by a great city, Philidelphia, but isn't so hot itself.

Rochester wins by a country mile for me if you're talking the city itself, especially since Rochester is one of my favorite cities, but Camden DOES have a sweet metro area.....

I would actually say Rochester's strength is its metro. Lots of nice waterfront and overall great suburbs.

Camden if it was on the waterfront. Its location to Philadelphia is the best.
