It also is a big shopping hub and is home to Rochester Institute of Technology. Some of the school's HOF members illustrate how long the population has been in the district: https://www.rhnet.org/Page/207 (Lee, Warfield, Southall, Thompson, Mayo, Bullard and Norwood)

Good school if you have a daughter that likes to run track, by the way. https://12thman.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=5335

So, if you are a little bit flexible in terms of the criteria, it could open things up even more.

Just to add, besides being very close to Lake Ontario, which has multiple beaches in the area, you also have this state park to the south only minutes away: https://parks.ny.gov/parks/79/details.aspx
You also have some of the Finger Lakes in the area, which has a big wine scene(if interested) and there is the Erie Canal as well. So, you have quite a few outdoor amenities nearby as well.
