Default Pittsford, NY

It is a very nice suburb and considered one of the more affluent suburbs in Monroe County. The population is mostly professional, educated, homeowners. Pittsford has a great village with a canal, shops, bistros, historical bed/breakfasts, liberal arts colleges, golf, tennis, horseback riding, bike path - but it is not pretentious. The Pittsford movie theater is one of two theaters in the county that run independent / art films, there is an amazing grocery store (Wegmans) that is an upscale model for grocery stores nationwide and find almost ANY item at the Pittsford Wegmans.

hey long islander - i grew up in Oceanside and moved to Batavia which is on the west side of Roch . as stated Pittsford is affluent, but less expensive than LI, you will find mostly xerox and kodak folks etc living there. Unless you go into Roch you aren't going to find the food etc that you are use to, except maybe in Wegmans -grocery- Brueggers produces a NY bagel, there aren't any deli's or bakeries to speak of. you can email me priviately if you would like as i don't come to this board often.

Default Rochester Sucks

I think rochester is a horrible place to live. Many corrupt officers around. and there are delis around here. Theres a Eurpean Deli in Perinton called Yunas on Whitney RD. Again whatever you do dont move to rochester it sucks go down south

Yunas.... there has never been a more WRONG statement. I moved south 4years ago from Rochester to Raleigh, NC and it was the stupidest thing I've ever done. Rochester has WAY more to offer if you are seeking a nice community feel and a great place to raise kids (Pittsford is one of the top 50 school districts in the nation....nearby Brighton is in the top 10). DO NOT MOVE SOUTH. So many people like me do and then realize that it sucks here. It's too hot in the summer, and instead of snowing snowflakes like it does in Rochester; it snows disgusting, irritating, ugly, yellow pollen from march to june... literaly, it falls in sheets, you can see it falling from the trees and it turns everything yellow until it rains, and then it turns stains everything that gets wet yellow. Not to mention that it will all but put you in the hospital if you have even minor alergies. Definitely stay in the Northeast, and choose Rochester if you want a well rounded community that is easy to feel at home at. In case no one has guessd. I'm moving back to Rochester this summer. I'm talking from experience in BOTH. This whole sunbelt thing, is OVERRATED.

Um; Do you mean west? Rochester is about 150 miles West of Albany; not North.

HI, From one Long Islander to another, get out of here. Pittsford is nice we looked to buy a house there but we picked one in Livonia because we would have been too close to my in law's who have been up there for 20+ years. They moved up there from Selden and would never come back here. I think the worse part about moving up there is not having the ocean down the road, but it is nicer and cheaper to live up there. My husband and I will hopefully be there sometime this July since we just sold our house down here. Good Luck
