I haven’t seen a lot about the town of Chili. 4 bedroom houses are cheaper in Chili, then in Fairport, Henrietta & etc, what is the downfall? Please give me your good, bad & indifferent opinions!

Chili is a pretty big town but it does border on the western part of the city. While the area of the city it borders is definitely not a high crime area, it is a lower income area. The home prices reflect that demographic. The further you get away from the city you get the more of a rural feel you'll see.

So I would say that I probably wouldn't recommend the pocket near the border of the city, but besides that, there's nothing wrong with the town at all. Now if comparing to Fairport though, I would pick Fairport over Chili. You're not going to get the terrain that Fairport offers or the very vibrant downtown and accessiblity to the Erie Canal like you can get in Fairport.

Chili seems like a generally fine town. Have family that lives there and it is separated from the 19th Ward by I-390 and the Airport. Even the outer parts of that city neighborhood by those 2 landmarks(for lack of a better word) are actually solid working/lower to even straight middle class actually. In recent years, there’s actually been quite a few college students in that area due to proximity to U of R and even RIT as well.

Home values may lower due to proximity to the highway and airport, as well as dare I say proximity to some inner parts of the neighborhood/section in relation to crime and the demographics of the people given the history/perception of who lives in a neighborhood and the real estate industry. This can be regardless of income in relation to other groups and all of this may go hand and hand

Anyway, anywhere in Chili will be generally fine and overwhelming likely to be middle class, with maybe a census block group or two maybe being working/lower middle class due to having more apartments. School districts covering the town, while not as highly regarded as the Eastern suburban SD’s, are still solid/good.

This can give an idea of some of the things I am referring to in terms of income, geography, etc.: 14624 Zip Code - USA.com™

First census tract in the town just outside of the city: Census Tract 014400 in Monroe County, New York
(Median household income is just over national figure and above the metro figure for the same time period)

More: Census Tract 014504 in Monroe County, New York

Census Tract 014503 in Monroe County, New York

Census Tract 014602 in Monroe County, New York

Census Block Group 014602-1 in Monroe County, New York

I lived in Chili for 2 years and really enjoyed it. Plenty of great neighborhoods, good schools, nice parks. A few nice restaurants and basics shopping (Target and Wegmans). When you get closer to the city it gets a bit sketchy but I'd say 90% of the town is great.

I think that for the most part, Chili is buffered from the city by the town of Gates.

Isn’t Gates north of Chili?

I believe the canal separates Chili from the 19th Ward as well.

Chili is mostly west of Gates and a little south. I believe that the only part of Chili that touches the 19th ward is the small strip of land south of the airport and north of the river. (Scottsville Rd area.)


The Chili Ave area crossing the canal is Gates.
