The schools are pretty good. I'd recommend Spencerport, Hilton, or Churchville over Brockport schools though. Brockport is probably the largest of the villages on the west side, and has a good selection of restaurants (off top of my head: fast food, family diner, Greek, BBQ, Charbroil, Italian, pizza, coffee shop, many bars) and stores (I can think of book, computer, video game, gift shops, Wegmans, Big M, Walmart, Auto parts, bowling alley off the top of my head). It is a bit of a hike from the city and can get congested when school is in session.

I'm trying to figure out what you are getting at. Other than the police are crooked and are stereotypical, but that is just Rochester in general. This is a two year old thread. Oh, and please, proof-read what you wrote.

Is Brockport still set to dissolve into Sweden? I have not heard anything lately about the situation. I was hoping to see more consolidation.

Really? Brockport seems to be too big of a village to dissolve. I can understand it if it happens though.

They ran out of money, so the only way to combat the problem would be to raise taxes an astronomical amount. So the proposal is to use the consolidation bill to make the two towns into one.

I'm hoping that this paves the way for more consolidation around Rochester.

Default West Rochester

Hi
I wanted to pass on info about this area. I live in the Churchville-Chili school district. IMO, this area, as well as Spencerport, have good schools. This is a small town atmosphere. You will find various kinds of home prospects. There are rural homes as well as track housing. There are new housing developments going up too. Neighborhoods provide a choice of small lots to 1 plus acres. There are also a lot of bldg improvements that have been happening, which makes the towns look more updated-refreshed.

I don't know as much about Brockport. I've driven through it many times. It is a college town. A friend of mine did her student teaching in Brockport HS and had a great experience.

Check out the town links and school district websites. Hope this helps.

I think you are going to see more consolidation of services like law enforcement, public works and fire departments. I think it is still possible to keep the cute, quaint villages, as long as the consolidation comes from somewhere else or consolidate the villages in a way that they still can be viewed as the town/community center in terms of the Main St. concept. In the census, such places would be viewed as census designated places instead of being a village in terms of a government entitity. Fort Covington is an example of a place in upstate NY that did this decades ago.

Hi everyone. We actually moved there in October 2008 but moved back to Long Island February 2010. The schools were okay, food pretty good, and not really a college town but a town that happens to have a college in it. Unfortunately it lacked the culture and friendly feel we were looking for. We came back to Long Island because with the drop in home prices, the houses are alot closer to the Rochester suburb prices now. That, and long island is close to NYC, stronger employment wages, better food variety and taste, and more areas that weren't just catholic or protestant. My family is not ultra religious by any means but seeing how much hate and negativity towards jewish people that I saw up there was disgusting. I hope people like the areas but we gave it a fair shot, and unfortunately it didn't suit us well.
Just for anyones information. I lived on Talamora Trail which is directly behind the Super Walmart on 31. Beautiful homes but not in the right environment for us.

Really? That's a shame. Maybe Brighton or Henrietta would have probably been a better fit during your time in the Rochester area due to the stronger Jewish presence.

I worked in Henrietta but not much better there. The problem is that the perception of the religion all around the areas was bad except for the 1 or 2 towns. That's no way to live. On the island it's much more diverse with all races, and religions, and much more respectful.
