You could also go south, Henrietta. If you don't mind a little drive, Chruchville or even Brockport are nice as well. Byron and Bergen are still a bit farther of a drive, but would have houses in your price range. Nice small communities in the country.

East of Mt Read and south of 104 are not great places to live. Very cheap housing though. The closer you get to 490 while still being east of Mt Read is not that nice of an area at all. A few blocks north of 490 and east of Mt Read Ave was the red light district of the Rochester area. Since Robert Duffy (previously police chief) took office this area has seen increased police and foot patrols which I take it have helped.

As with any city -- main roads, RR tracks and commercial zones seem to help people segregate themselves. There are several places around town where a block one way or another changes the overall makeup of the neighborhood.

As a single mother I don't know what kind of repairs or yard work you would be enthusiastic about taking on... have you thought about a condo/townhome? You could get one in Fairport or Penfield in the lower $100K range... possibly less. I would try to get my kids into those school districts... they are some of the BEST. And you wouldn't have to worry about a yard and repairs like you would if you purchased a less expensive home that is older and needing repairs... just a suggestion. I would do a search for Schoold Districts on Nothnagle.com - Rochester's Full Service REALTORģ - for Pittsford, Fairport, Penfield, and even Webster... but do it by District because that will provide you with more options than the town alone.... Good luck... I live in Penfield School District and am a Fairport Grad if you have any questions.

The good news is that Diringer Place is near the Public Market and Swan's...a fantastic German meat market. The bad news is that is a rough part of the city and the schools are bad. I wouldn't live there if I had the choice, but I don't know your situation.

Depending on what hospital you would be working at (if you would be working at a hospital?)

Strong Memoral or Highland Hospital; Brighton would be the best area. Amazing schools and close to those hospitals.

Unity Hospital, Western Greece would be the best

Rochester General Hospital....you'd probably want to live in Irondequoit, in the West Irondequoit school district.

You've got some great help up here from some great people. Personally, I would recommend the Brighton area and also Fairport. Brighton is more of a "retirement" area and is very close to most stuff since it is in the middle of the city. Also, Fairport and Pittsford are great places to start fresh. Good luck to you.

Greece is once again the close winner on this one because of proximity to Rochester General and Park Ridge Hospital. Strong Memorial wouldn't be too far if you ended up landing a job there. The really affordable homes are off W. Ridge Road on the North side of Ridge heading west. I had lots of friends that lived off of Wood Rd, past the mall on the North hand side. I havent lived in Greece for about 12 years, live in the Phoenix area now (guess why) but school busses are much available in Rochester, compared to Arizona big time. Schools in NY are BY FAR better than most in the country. Sure the weather is nicer in Arizona, but the kids are dumb. People here in Arizona as a matter of fact ARE dumb.

People here on this message board seem to like inside the city limits, which is great if you don't have children and thats because of the schools. Suburb schools are way better and thats because there is more family structure and support (in general) in the outlying areas.
