What locals are saying

Whether you’re relocating to Rochester to educate that big brain of yours at U Rochester, climbing the company ladder with Kodak, or simply searching for the abominable snowman who’s said to reside here during the bitterly cold and snowy winter months, Rochester has a warm abode for you somewhere, and we’re here to help you find it. Rochester is a young, small city of 200,000 located in upstate New York (yes, there are OTHER cities in this state), where your dollar will stretch quite a bit further than you might expect. The presence of the University adds 10,000 undergrad and graduate students to the mix, so this little slice of upstate heaven has no lack of funky bars, coffee shops, boutiques and a ragingly popular weekend Public Market.

If you like living in mansions (and who doesn’t?), the Park Avenue district is for you
