City Guide for Brighton, NY

"Low bridge, everybody down, Low bridge, 'cause we're comin' to a town, And you'll always know your neighbor, you'll always know your pal, If you've ever navigated on the Erie Canal." ("Erie Canal")

Located just south of Rochester in western New York, Brighton is known for its architectural beauty, and for the Erie Canal, which runs through the middle of town. More than 36,000 people are located in this suburban area, also noted for its amenities. Named for Brighton, England, it was settled in 1790, and it remained a farming community until Rochester grew up around it, eventually surrounding the town. Today, this upscale suburb packs a lot into its 15 square miles. A thriving business sector lets you work close to home and after a hard day's night, you can enjoy its six major park sites, the annual Brighton Arts Festival, the Farmers Markets or maybe a songfest about the Erie Canal.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with hardwood floors in Brighton, NY

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Brighton renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.

However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.

Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.

It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.

Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.

However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
