The City of Rochester is estimated to have added 290 new residents between July 2010 and July 2011. I know it's not much, but it's promising.

Buffalo ranks 72nd in new population estimates - Buffalo - Business First

Good to see! This is the first recorded growth since 1960 as far as I know.

And off topic, do Buffalonians not consider Rochester to be in Western New York? The article says that Niagara Falls is the 2nd largest city in WNY, and I've heard this from Buffalo sources many times. Why do we consider ourselves to be in WNY if they do not?

This is following a nationwide trend of population moving back into urban areas; mostly comprised of younger adults in their 20's realizing the benefits to themselves and environment in general of ending the suburban sprawl. I was wondering if this was going to trickle down to Rochester. While only a 200 resident increase, it's the first time in awhile population hasn't shrunk. Let's hope it's a trend.

Buffalo lost 290 in pop. Maybe all but 5 moved to Rochester!

kgbnsf, I saw an article that said Generation Y'ers Generation Y - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediatend to delay learning how to drive America's Generation Y not driven to drive - Yahoo! News...apparently they're more likely to live in urban areas where there's mass transit.
