Founded in 1817 on the site of an undeveloped mill, Rochester is located south of Lake Ontario in west-central New York about 250 miles from New York City. And if your moving truck rental is heading to this birthplace of Bausch and Lomb, Eastman Kodak and Xerox, you'll join a population of about 210,000 (which makes Rochester New York's third largest city after New York City and Buffalo).
Grain milling made Rochester one of America's original boomtowns and earned it the nickname The Flour City. But as Rochester evolved into a major horticultural center in the 1850s, it became known as The Flower City. These days, Rochester continues to embrace this legacy through its popular Lilac Festival, which attracts more than 100,000 visitors each May.
Multiple publications have cited Rochester as a one of the best cities in America because of its overall quality of life, school system, low cost of living and jobless rate. Rochester is also known for its historic neighborhoods including Browncroft, The 19th Ward, Charlotte, Corn Hill, East End, North Winston Village and South Wedge. There's also the Neighborhood of the Arts, Swillburg and the Madison Square-West Main Street Historic District.
Scenic parks and Victorian-era cemeteries add to Rochester's character. Favorites include Highland, Durand Eastman, Genessee Valley, Mt. Hope Cemetery, Holy Sepulchre and Riverside Cemetery. Rochesterians also have access to 13 full-time recreation centers, three ice rinks, 66 softball/baseball fields, seven soccer fields and five football fields.
In addition to outdoor recreation, there's plenty more to keep you busy in Rochester. So be sure to check out (or check out at least one more time if you're leaving the area) The George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film, the Seneca Park Zoo, the Susan B. Anthony House, the Memorial Art Gallery, the Strasenburgh Planetarium, the Rochester Museum & Science Center and Ellwanger Garden. You also shouldn't miss the Charlotte Genesee Lighthouse, the Campbell Whittlesey Museum, the Strong National Museum of Play and the Genesee Country Village & Museum.
