Your talk of the 'community' making very insignificant decisions about EVERYTHING in a persons life sounds more like communism than a free society. I guess you just think freedom sucks and communism is good.

Not surprising for a Pittsford snob.

I was simply countering the point of this article that said "Pittsford was among the top 100 places to live". I disagreed, for reasons like the paint color on your house must be approved, and YOU are the one that blasted me for it. I guess I'm not allowed to disagree because your 'Pittsford Community' says so. Quit defending their rediculous rules. They're stupid, irrelevant, and SNOBBY, NOSEY, and border on COMMUINIST. Face it! You're surrounded by snobs who want to tell others what they can do on their own property that doesn't affect others, aside from being an EYE SORE. Yea, that's worth having the Town run you're entire life for you

You have once again demonstrated your lack of knowledge regarding building, zoning or any other code regarding life in Pittsford. In 43 years I have never experienced any of the crap you are spreading.

I guess you don't own the McDonalds on Monroe Ave then!

I DO know you're familiar with the Boat/camper and RV law..says you can't keep these in YOUR OWN drive way. I have an uncle who's a contractor. He's had so many problems with Town boards and zoning...he won't even accept jobs in Pittsford anymore. When he did, he used to add 20% to the cost for all the BS he knew he'd have to deal with. In one instance, he had to leave a job on hold for 3 months waiting for the board to approve some mundane detail. He's trying to earn a living, ya know. When he finally got the approval after months of back and forth, he was already working on another job across town. Then the homeowner was mad at HIM...He's just trying to earn a living.

I gues it's "different strokes for different folks" I suppose. You sound like a fairly reasonable person, actually. I guess you've never had to deal with the zealotry of the town government and the zoning board. Do yourself a favor and take my advice....don't make ANY renovations to your home; It's likely to cost you a lot more than you think, and will likely make your blood pressure boil!

My point is....Pittsford's one of the top 100 places to live....depending on what your judging that by.

Sorry for getting a little personal about the issue with you

I'm glad that I call people like Monkondis my neighbour!!! I moved here from Canada where people are respectful of each other. One is not defined by their possesions, think about ethics and morality.
Has Mr. Skeptical ever left his own backyard or is he too busy preaching pro-life and right to bear arms in the same breath!

Obviously the westside is better. The eastside is snobby. I think it's rather overrated. It's almost like a totally different metro area.

Can not say I share that view with you. I have not found any difference. There seems to be crude and snobby people evenly distributed. Thanks for reminding me. As you will notice I am on the westside now !!!

First of all, I'm pro-choice. Secondly, I've been everwhere...I've lived in Hilton, Livonia, Penfield, Fairport, and the city. Secondly, Pittsford people are ALL ABOUT thier possesions; that was sort of my point. Finally, I don't see what abortion or the 2nd amendment has to do with this discussion.

I wonder how many other constitutional amendments you'd like to eliminate?!

Pissford sucks. Stepford wives about sums it up . They had to waste millions of dollars of our taxpayer money building another middle school they did not need. First of all, middle schools do not work assholes. They did this so they could have two seperate school systems so that they would not have to mingle or network with new people , god forbid. Most of the kids don't do that well becauses they are brought up to be so entitled and think everything should be handed to them.

For those who are not familiar with Pittsford...Ever see the town in the movie Edward Siccorhands?? Yea, it's JUST like THAT town.
guess what...Greece doesn't have these regs, and YOU CAN TELL. Cars parked on the lawn, weeds for a lawn, and orange/pink/flourescent yellow houses. Why does Pittsford do it? CAUSE IT WORKS. Helps keep it Honkeyville. I love my town.

Beau Monde, get over yourself, Pittsford isn't anything special, you should get out more often. The only thing Pittford has that is desirable is good schools for your kids, so if you don't have kids then it is just another place to live and with the taxes as high as they are, it isn't that special at all !!!!

Pittsford is like most suburbs with good schools, loaded with Thurston Howell wanabees like Beau Monde, and property taxes that make you sick to your stomach if you don't have children. The restaurants and bars are like restaurants and bars anywhere you go although you could get Italian food that is 5 times better in a city like Utica, NY. There are just as many problems with children, cheating husbands and wives, drug and alcohol abusers in Pittsford as any other suburb that is loaded with people who think their sh!t don't stink.
