If you're looking for a family-oriented place, a suburb with friendly elderlies, and welcoming young couples. Irondequoit is the place for you. With multiple job opportunities, a supermarket, small family-owned businesses, you'll feel right at home in Irondequoit NY, the heart of Rochester. The area is ridiculously safe with friendly and attentive neighbors nearby always there if you need a helping hand, but conservative enough where you never have to question your privacy.
I love living in Irondequit! Its super quiet, and never any issues. The scenery is a nice touch too, especially if you live right by the view of the lake. And its just a short distance from Wegmans for all your grocery needs and The SeaBreeze water park. My only issue with this town would be only during the winter when driveways and sidewalks need to be plowed, just because it snowed doesn't mean that I get the day off. It would be nice to see them out earlier.
