They must mean Rochester suburbs and not the city proper. I guess they went past Liberty Pole on a Sunday.

It helped the city become better when all the white moved out into the burbs.
So as the whites moved out value of all of our house shot up.

Man do you have that backwards. City property values have done nothing but declined since the zoo animals showed up.

She/he/it has never owned a house in the city for sure. More than likely always lived in an apt.or section 8 housing "it's" whole life.

Now how did I miss this thread?! I caught you red-handed, you conservative clown! You had the nerve to call me a racist! A zoo animal?! I don't follow you on that, but you are no angel, fella! You are nothing but a two-faced coward of a punk! Do you live in the city? You conservative surburanites are all the same! Passing judgement on everything without getting the scoop. People like you need to turn around and give everyone a hug around you. People are people. I love everyone! You guys are full of hate! We all bleed the same, and you sound like your buddy Pigpen, the stingy jew! You guys need to leave your homes and join some organizations. Maybe that will change the way you guys talk and feel about "these people" you guys speak of.

I don't put much stock in these rankings. They are little more than puff pieces. Does anyone see people moving here in large numbers? The population of Rochester proper is declining and the metro area is basically flat. How many young college graduates stay here? Not nearly the number that leave to start life elsewhere.

This area is a nice place to raise a family, most of the suburban schools are decent. There are some nice attractions. But the local economy isn't that hot, large areas of the city are crime ridden and crumbling, our local " leaders" are not effective. I, like many others, will flee this area just as soon as the time is right.

Enjoy it if you love it, but don't delude yourself with the feel good propaganda.Rochester has seen its best days.
