The actual article/list: https://www.aarp.org/home-family/you...ive-in-us.html

Ironically, I met a guy some months ago from Syracuse that has been retired, that lives in a condo community(if I’m not mistaken) in Canandaigua.

Default What's NOT good about the town?

I always thought that this was a great place, and am considering retiring there.

So what are the downsides?? (No need to say "Long winters." I'm from Buffalo, and miss snow.)

Also, its crime rate is very high at 40 points over the national average. Why/how is that, in a town with so little killing? Lots of burglaries, robberies--what?

Thanks for your views.

Crime can be caused by being a retail center for an area and in turn, can skew the overall rate. So, a lot of that is likely property crime related.

Seriously??? Retail does not cause crime. A criminal mindset causes crime. It's not my fault that causes crime. That is the mindset of the liberals which NYS has way too much of.

What are you talking about? Did you actually read what I wrote? By the way, don’t play that “liberal/conservative” mess with me, as I’ve never politicize everything like other posters on here do.

My point is that if a place is a retail center, it is likely to have some thefts/property related crime. In turn, that is likely the thing that skews the crime in Canandaigua, given that it is a retail center for its surrounding area. In fact, while a little old, you’ll notice that this information illustrates that point: Canandaigua, NY Crime and Crime Rate - USA.com™

Hopefully, this will clear things up.
