So many people take this area for granted. Because my area of study is environmental science, there are so many wonderful opportunities here. I do enjoy living here, and I do think that if I had the chance, I would still choose to live here. I can't honestly rank it compared to everywhere else in the country, because different places have different amazing qualities.

There aren't many serious crimes in the area, and there's always police patrolling around the town. Medina was a hub for businesses many, many years ago because of the Erie Canal; but now there are many empty buildings around that could be a cause of concern. That is the only concern, however, and I do feel safe living in this area.
There are 2 major cities within an hours drive and 2 medium size cities within 30 minute drives . We are nestled between 2 of the Great Lakes and have 1 of the 7 Wonders of the World 35 minutes away . History flourishes in this area from the Erie Canal History to the Medina Sandstone History .

The people are country folk for the most part and enjoy the friendly and social attitudes of the area . I've worked in different areas of the country from the West coast to the East , for the most part all people are the same , friendly . This area is different to the point of 'family' . Everyone knows everyone , it's like a huge family where ever you go in Western NY .
