All the more reason that I know I'm making the right move home. Rochester was ranked the number 1 metropolitan area out of the 50 largest metros in the country to live by expansion magazine...as a great place to live and do business. Here's the story;

Democrat & Chronicle:

Rochester quality of life ranked No. 1 of 50 metros

According to the article Rochester was ranked 35th and that survey was done in 2005. Here is the link to the survey Research Studies: 50 Hottest Cities

Maybe I'm misinterperating what you're saying...but it seems like you're saying that it doesn't seem very truthfull because it was ranked much lower 2 years ago. I'll bet it was much lower in 2005, that was back when they had just announced 10,000 job cuts at Kodak worldwide, with 2500 of them being in Rochester....those are done now and new job creation has outpaced the job losses....the ranking for the 2007 list is based on MANY liveability factors; and when they are all weighted together, Rochester comes out on top. I'll be the first to say that I don't think ANYONE should judge or decide to move there just because a magazine ranks it highly...because Raleigh, NC usually makes the top of lists too and I think it's vastly overrated.

Interesting, Rochester is Ranked #1 in quality of life in the article you mentioned, yet Rochester also Ranks as #20 on Census Population for fastest losing cities. Not to knock Rochester, but these two rankings seem at odds with each other. If the quality of life is so high, I would at least expect the population to hold steady and not be on a top 25 list of cities losing population the fastest!
