I'm planning on moving to the Rochester area sometime this summer. (eeks-this summer!) I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to take time off of work to go and look at different areas. I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to specific apartment complexes that are nice…but not too nice…and not in a sketchy area. I'm going to be looking in the $600-upper $700 range. I don't have a huge preference as to in the city or on the outskirts…just not too much of an in the country vibe, would like to not have to drive too far to get into the city.

Any help any of you can give would be lovely! Thank you in advance. Oh, and please no people who hate the climate and area busting in on this and trying to dissuade. It's really the opposite of being helpful and sort of destructive to people who actually have plans and are excited about moving and starting over. Keep the negativity away please. Much appreciated.

If you want to be right in the heart of a great active neighborhood, the 300 Alexander apartments could be a great fit. You can get a studio for 775 but it is a really small studio. But it's a really fun neighborhood right on the corner of East Ave. and Alexander St.

Floor Plans :: Apartments in Rochester, NY :: 300 Alexander

Here's an apartment building in the Park Ave. area that you can get for in the 600's for a 1 bedroom. I actually lived in this apartment building back in my 20's and absolutely loved it. Right on the corner of Park and you can walk to Monroe Ave. too. It's also a very safe neighborhood:

292 Oxford Street #17, Rochester, NY 14607 - HotPads

This is a great suburban location if you want a suburb. It's in Brighton which is right outside of the city and a safe neighborhood as well and you can get a 1 bedroom for upper 700's.

Another option in Brighton as well:

And a little further out in the Suburbs putting you halfway between Rochester and Victor. This is about a 10 minute drive into the city and about 10 minute drive to Eastview Mall which is a very large shopping mall in Victor. Victor is about a 20 minute drive from the city.

Thank you! (Totally forgot to mention 1 bedroom) The Oxford Street doesn't appear to be a listing anymore, at least on that link.

Oh sorry...you're right. The listings are removed. The building might be full. Here's another apartment Also right off Park Ave on Barrington St and within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants on Park Ave. Barrington is a beautiful street too. It looks like they have 1 bedrooms in the 600-700's range.

14609, east of Culver, the closer to Winton the better.

Good luck.

Webster usually gets hammered more than the city or anywhere else west of Irondequoit bay, mainly due to their position relative to the shape of the lake shoreline. Anywhere east of the bay and north of I-90 typically get hits pretty hard in comparison to the rest of the Rochester area. Other than that, if you can deal with the winter weather, it's a nice town with a lot of money in most parts. However it does have its pockets of lower end living standards, so make sure you research the area you're interested in wisely.

Webster is a nice town. It has 44,000 people but it covers a very large area so with the exception of downtown in the village, it does feel a bit rural.But the downtown has that old time 1800's downtown feel to it. So if you don't mind a little bit rural feeling, then it is a great town to live in. Also even with that rural feel it still only about a 5-10 minute drive to downtown Rochester and about 10-15 minutes to the southern areas of the city, so you can quickly get into the city.

It is also one of the faster growing towns in the area. There has been a ton of construction going on in the town so lots of new apartments and homes are popping up. It is also really close to the lake so it's a real quick drive up. It is nice as well. It tends to lean more upper middle class but much more affordable then the affluent suburbs like Pittsford. It does get some more snow being so far north up near the lake too. But still not as bad as the next towns further east into Wayne County.

This park is on the lake in Webster and absolutely beautiful.
