I got to thinking I have long complained about the horrible weather Rochester has and I still believe this however not only this is true but I have also realized just how crappy the city itself is. Almost every city I have been to I have liked it better than Rochester. Everyone likes to trash Cleveland Ohio but I like it way better than Rochester. It reminded me of everything Rochester always wanted to be.

Right downtown it had a cool mall that is three stories and had a hotel and a two-story food court built right into it, also had a movie theater in the mall. That's what Rochester always wanted Midtown Plaza to be like. Also the downtown actually felt like downtown not like Rochester's puny downtown which is only a few blocks long really.

Philadelphia to me seemed a lot like Rochester on steroids and had way better stores like Nordstrom. Also there notorious ghetto Norristown I went to and it seemed so tame compared to the ghettos of Rochester. Norristown looks like 90% of Rochester to me. Actually seems safe in comparison. Not only this but in Rochester the city itself is so dangerous that no one even uses it hardly anymore. Almost everyone has moved out to the suburbs and it takes so long to commute because everything is so spread out. It's like a city built around a city almost like they did in Detroit. About the only city I ever been to that I thought was worse than Rochester was probably Washington DC.

Not to mention how horrible the nightlife is in Rochester. The only nightlife Rochester has for young people, are a couple crappy bars and coffee shops. There is hardly any nightclubs. Compare that to the glorious nightclubs in places like New York City Miami and even Montréal. Also most of the bars in Rochester are not singles bars and most of the people who go there are couples or friends so it's not even a good place to meet someone.

I am still trying to decide if this post and all the weather related posts are serious.

did you see me talk about the weather here? no. Obviously all my good points about how every other city is better than Rochester have left you speechless and you cant even address my claims directly

I consider myself quite well travelled and I lived in the western suburbs of Rochester for about a year and a half and left in 2010. Obviously it wasn't for me but your complaints are pretty extreme. I'm originally from NYC and then moved to Long Island where I have spent the majority of my life outside of my years in the military. Everyone has their own opinions and what is right for you might not be right for someone else but I definitely disagree that Rochester is the worst. It didn't fit my needs but it could have been alot worse.

@ Matt357 quit d---k riding the Rochester forum. You’ve started multiple threads over the past few weeks and done nothing but bash the city. City data is a site meant for constructive dialog/ advice about differnt cities, it’s not a space for you to vent your rants. That’s what I would have said to you if I thought you were for real, but I’m 99.9 % sure you trolling… It’s painfully obvious to anyone who’s been on the internet for over three days ~youfail
