What do you like about Rochester? good wages/low cost of living, stable economy, short commute time (can be anywhere by car in 15 minutes), low crime.

What do you dislike about Rochester? a singles wasteland. city is ultra-boring. You end up overextending yourself to have even a minimal social life. People are generally very private. ~1/4 the town works at Mayo or IBM, which means medical types are obsessed with their free time due to call schedules and the computer types are surfing the web. Bars are few and far between, no central cluster of shops and stores besides the mall. Very few college age people. The most beautiful central park, Silver lake, is overrun with geese and their waste.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
northwest part of town is the newest, however=total urban sprawl.
very few places open after 10 pm.
civic art museum is a great space but don't expect to see artsy types there. essex park has great trails.

How expensive is it? inexpensive.

Is it safe? yes. Police are ridiculously suspicious.

How is the weather? many beautiful days, many crappy ones. winter wind can be brutal.

Additional thoughts?
perfect place to raise the 2 kids and the black lab with the white picket fence. if you want to live an episode of Grey's Anatomy without the drama, you'll fit right in.

What do you like about Rochester?
The economy is really great.

What do you dislike about Rochester?
There really isn't anything to do here. There are a few bars, but that's really about it.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
I like the NW part of town, it's the nicest.

How expensive is it?
Rochester isn't overly expensive to live in.

Is it safe?
Pretty safe, but the crime rate has been increasing noticeably.

How is the weather?
Weather is alright. I wish it didn't go so damn cold in the winter though.

Additional thoughts? IBM and The Mayo Clinic own this town.
