There are so many zip codes and alot of information. We are concerned with great neighborhoods, GREAT schools with many stores etc close by. Is the snow really that bad in the winter? Not sure which areas are considered pricey and in the best location.

Many Thanks in advance

What about the "old rich" neighborhoods in the city of Rochester too? I'm thinking Park Ave., East Ave. and some of the Eastside neighborhoods. Maybe parts of the 19th Ward too.

Just curious why it has to be the WEALTHIEST areas in Rochester?
Hilton has a wonderful school district and is fairly close to Greece where there are all the convenient shopping areas. However, Hilton is not considered to be one of the "wealthier" areas.....
as one poster said, there are parts of "old" Rochester that are also extremely wealthy,lots of old money.... but ,the schools,not so great.

If you are looking for the suburbs that have that upper class stigma, I guess Pittsford,Penfield,Perinton,parts of Webster these days,mainly the Eastern Suburbs have that "stigma".

We have moved all over the place ,in our 6th home and are originally from Rochester. I have to say that our priorities have certainly changed since having children, we were lucky in the fact I guess that we are able to live in a beautiful,well sought after neighborhood in the top school district of our area,but our goal was never to find the "wealthiest" area.....

I was just confused by the thread title and curious as to why that matters.... lots of really nice areas with good school districs but not wealthy.. another place you might want to try is Farmington. Seems to be growing,but is very rural still and certainly NOT wealthy at all.
Good school district though; Canadaguia.....

Mentioned wealthiest areas to get a feel for the communities in relation to one another. Not looking to live in the wealthiest town just desire great schools. Thanks for the information.

Can't forget Brighton, as far as affluent suburbs. What about the Western part of Irondequoit too? Both areas are close to the city as well.

Depends on how wealthy!!!

Besides the obvious richest man in ROC...Most would be suprised that the family of the owners of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers live in ROC also...Not sure where they live, but I'd bet either Pittsford or Mendon..

If you fly over eastern ROC (Mendon/Pittsford/country areas) seems to have the truly wealthy people...I work with insanely wealthy people everyday, and you wouldn't believe how much money some people can obtain!!

Pittsford, Penfield, Fairpot (by Casa Larga), and yeah, a few places in Webster (14580). Those places have the biggest houses. If you're looking for a great school district, I can personally attest to Fairport School District, but the suburban schools are all better than Rochester city schools.
