That is insane... you make it sound like living in Fairport, Penfield or Pittsford is like living in the sticks... it is the second post you have made this same ignorant comment... If you get on 490 you are anywhere in no time...about 10 minutes to downtown and you could be sitting in your car longer than that in the stop and go city traffic ...talk about eating gas... and then worry about the insane on street parking system of the city or the cost of parking in a garage... Isolated means they sit all by themselves... Isolated does not mean they border the city and have huge populations, entertainment, dining, shopping... like the Suburbs of Rochester do. That was one of the most rediculous statements I have read about our suburbs. Everything you could want is in the suburbs without the young party goers and crime of SOME parts of the city... One Example... Pittsford Plaza- walking distance from Village of Pittsford and the amazing dining in Pittsford itself... THIS comment just sounds like an ANTI East Side individual's view. Fairport is a wonderful place- voted in the top 60's of best places to live about two years ago... and that apartment I suggested is in walking distance to the Village of Faiport, the Canal Path, library, park, small village grocery/hiking trails...and a very short drive to Wegmans /Target/Drug Stores/Dining/Parks/Rec Center/the list goes on and on- about 3-5 minutes TREK- so VERY VERY far... Eastview mall- the most posh and best mall in Rochester is close by- the mall everyone prefers... Isolated... like it is some prairie with tumble weeds...

Fairport, Penfield, Pittsford is nice if you have a family or are older. I am not sure a 20-something recent graduate would be happy there though, as it is the heart of suburbia. I would definitely visit English Village first before moving there to make sure you are ok with it.

I'd look in the city where mentioned, or in the Brighton/Henrietta areas for people the same age and relatively cheap living. Rustic Village comes up a lot, along with the apartment complex at the corner of Elmwood and S. Clinton. I don't know too much about either.

I am thirty years old... lived in Fairport when I graduated from undergrad... love it. As did many of my friends- I can name five who lived in the Fpt apartment building I mentioned alone... very active town- lots of recreational activities/sports...

As you said in the Not 20-something thread...

"I ALWAYS suggest East End to YOUNG COLLEGE KIDS or those JUST GRADUATING"

I believe the OP is just graduating, so I would check out the east end/park ave. area if you are still into the partying lifestyle. Fairport is nice if you are settling down or live a more active lifestyle (though still not necessarily the best location)

You are taking that out of context... it was in regards to a 40 something being told to move to East End... the rent can be rather high there... this person is looking for something about $600 and that isn't easy there unless you have a roommate and considering this person doesn't know anyone her I doubt that is an option.

I don't know much about the location (overall, Charlotte is decent). Schools aren't great, if that is a concern.
