The canal? You mean the useless pointless ditch that our Thru-way tolls pay to keep going.

I have to say after moving from the westside to the eastside (not Pittsford) I can definitely see a difference in communities for the better. It makes me wish I had done this years before. Pittsford is definitely snobsville and I have to agree with Mr. Skeptical. I too used to work in Pittsford and have to agree with the "can't drive worth a pinch of ****" and their "attitudes" but the other eastside town(s) are wonderful from what I've experienced so far.
I totally agree. I worked in Pittsford and the people are very snobby, stuck up , rude.

Best post on this thread......Hilarious & concise.
Our husbands work long hours so our children can have anything they want. Granted, they make far more money per hour in their professional positions (if you equate it that way), and they're not afraid to spend it on top colleges and universities.

We do pay reasonably high taxes, but reap the benefits of better schools and a much safer community, in which a number of minority families, like ours, lives.

So, a suggestion. Why don't you all drop the racist rap (which many of you seem to do as your fulltime job). There are many successful minorities living very comfortably in Pittsford - lawyers, doctors, educators and business owners. It is certainly not even close to 100% white.

Cut the crap already.

Hey I don't think it's 100% white.Nor do I care. I do however think that it is mostly filled with dull and nosy cowards with spoiled brat children.In regards with the original point of this thread. It is the western NY capital of NIMBYism.

No, we are intolerant of incompetent people waiting on us, and expecting a big tip for shoddy service. Clean up your act and the residents will treat you well. Losers get flushed very quickly in Pittsford. Your comment is one biased opinion, and not the least bit accurate.

Locust Hill members usually can't afford Oak Hill CC. That statement didn't make any sense.

The only place worse than Locust Hill is Irondequoit Country Club. Irondequoit CC caters to the morbidly chintzy and losers. It is disgusting.

<quoted text>Your calling me a liberal? What a freaking joke.You have no idea who your talking to here.A lot of my opinions on your town come from my experiences attending private school with them. They always thought way to highly of them selves because they were over privileged and spoiled.A fair number of them are not fairing so well today.
But, a majority are "fairing" extremely well. Law school, med school, other grad schools, great colleges. Every town has a cadre of losers, Pittsford too. However, the majority of our youth do very well in later life, by percentage, significantly better that other surrounding communities.

You're still a liberal, and likely a frustrated one at that. And I'm still an African-American living in Pittsford -- and playing tennis this afternoon.

Well I'm about to head to the library, pick up a few novels. Then head over to the pet shop to get a pair of Black Molly's, those live bearers. After dropping them off back out to enjoy the weather today.

Good luck with that, too. You're delusional. The 1% controls how the constitution is interpreted and administered. We cheat a little on our taxes to get even. It all works out.

Okay right thread. A couple of years ago my friend who lives in Pittsford got a ticket because I parked my motorcycle on his walkway(not the sidewalk).I parked there because his wife was due home from the grocery store and I did not want to block her. My bike was parked for about 20min. and his neighbor called to report it.That is ridiculous.It's his walkway to do as he pleases, it was hurting no one.The neighbor was NOSY,vindictive,and unneighborly for doing that.He/she should have told my friend to move it or it will be reported if they are so bothered by trivial things. Not doing that is being a coward.He lives there and thinks a lot of the people are nosy,vindictive,and cowardly as well.Not all, but a good share.

Let me understand. Because one neighbor was vindictive, then you generalize about a community. This example makes no sense in supporting your premise.

It only illustrates that in the Town of Pittsford resides a curmudgeon who was annoyed because you blocked an area, and felt reporting it was the right thing to do.

It's unfortunate you received a citation, but to condemn at entire Town for one unfortunate incident isn't credible.

I'm sure you would agree, now that's it has been rationally explained to you. We are a very kind and caring community. You could have parked for free in the Town lots (just watch out for the rouge town snowplows in the winter).
