Great school district to be connected with. Supports all extra curricular activities whether they be sports, music, or theatre related. Faculty love to see their students strive and are overly invested. Political views seem to play a role at times due to the small town vibe. The Brockport college makes it feel overly busy and crowded, however the school provides services to the townspeople like the gym, skating rink, and the pool. Great local businesses down Main Street including Lift Bridge! And there's a Wegmans. The Seymour library is also a plus.

When I was growing up, I lived in a small town with only a few stores in the town, and not too much to do. Luckily, Brockport is only about a ten minute drive away from my childhood home. It's not only where my high school is located, but where I spent a lot of my time growing up. It's a comfortable town, with a good mix between houses and open area, and buildings. Suny Brockport College is located right in town, so there are always new faces, and nightly activities to keep you entertained. It isn't the stereotypical "city" hustle but there is still plenty to do. A lot of people always talk about wanting to leave there home town. How much they hate it, how small it is, or how they just can't stand it anymore. Brockport is different. It's a place you really wouldn't mind coming back to. It feels and looks like a place you'd call a home. Maybe I'm biased, but it's one of my favorite towns in Rochester, NY.
If you are looking for a quaint town to either reside or visit, Brockport NY is the place to be. The Small town sits right on the Erie Canal which allows you to have a nice place for a jog, walk or bike ride. The small shops along main street allows for small town shopping and eating. Overall Brockport is a great place to live and visit!
