Hello to all of Rochester (home for us) and everyone that is reading from everywhere else.
We will be moving back home from California in two months. We have been in California for way too long and it has really taken it's toll. Looking forward to getting back to a much simpler, less stressful way of life with great friendly quality people, wonderful food and four seasons. The cost to maintain the minimum out here is too much to handle and there is no more middle class. Only the wealthy and the struggling. Nothing in between.
Anyways, my son will be attending SUNY Brockport in the fall and we are having a real dilemna about where to live. I would love to live on the Brighton-Henrietta Town Line (specifically Brighton Colony) for many reasons. I know the area very well, It is a very safe area, great food, great shopping, I was raised in Brighton plus it is in the middle of everything with easy access everywhere. We have also been looking in Greece, Spencerport, Chili and Gates. Ideally we would like to rent a 2 bedroom townhome (no apartments please) and I would like to have a finished basement if possible. Hopefully it will be at least 1200 square feet as where we live now is so small that space has become very important. The place that I have considered in Greece is Long Pond Shores in Greece. Does anyone have any feedback on this complex? When I look on apartmentreview.com they do not get great reviews. People comment that the police visit often and the place is not maintained as well as it should be.
This has become quite a challenge as I am doing all this on the phone and on the internet.
Anyways, any comments on these complexes or any suggestions to any other complexes would be very much appreciated. Going on Mapquest is Brighton to Suny Brockport is 23.97 miles. Long Pond Shores to Suny Brockport is 18.08 miles so the mileage is not significant.
If anyone has any suggestions to any nice townhome complexes for a 2 bedroom unit around $975 or so or just any input at all would be appreciated.
Anyways, I am very much looking forward to coming back home and being in the welcoming ways of Rochester. I very much appreciate any input and comments at all. Thank you everyone!

On your budget, you can afford an entire 3 bedroom house in the Highland/Elwanger Barry neighborhood in the city just north of where you are looking (there are some really great streets including Rockingham and Mulberry). You can also afford a nice 3 bedroom apartment in a side by side double in that area. The neighborhood is safe and it looks like the local public schools are not an issue for you since your son is college age. Just a thought.
