Henrietta is a fairly quiet, though bustling suburb of Rochester, NY. Henrietta caters to all sorts of people in various stages of their life but is especially a hub for college students attending Rochester Institute of Technology. There is a mall, several food venues including, newer, hip and fun places like Pi Craft and Naan Tastic. Restaurants like Thali of India and Pakistani House visit RIT and creates an inviting atmosphere when students like the food so much as to visit restaurants off-campus. Not to mention the locations that cater to students and letting them pay for meals with their otherwise on-campus food payment types.
Henrietta is a great place for people who like to live close to the excitement and activities a city provides, without having to live in the middle of the city itself. I would recommend living here and glad that I do!

Best place to grow up! Kind neighbors, Wegmans and beautiful greenery. Plus adequate average home buying costs, and decent taxes.
Henrietta is a very nice suburb to reside in. They have very good public schools and resources. It's a pretty diverse community with all types of people. If you choose to reside within one of the complexes in Henrietta, everything is done as a community. You must get consent from the head of the community with a work order request if you want to build a deck or add to your house in any way. It's a pretty quiet suburb and nightlife is calm. It's also a pretty safe area. People are family friendly, and the cost of living is way less than living within a city. There are quite a lot of job opportunities for engineers, people within the medical field, and business workers. From an average home in Henrietta, it takes about 8-15 minutes to reach outlets, malls, and grocery stores.
