I love Rohester, NY. It one of the most amazing place to live. I live in an apartment, all of my neighbors are so good and we all love each other. If we need anything we would ask our neighbors and they are willing to do it. We love to share our culture and traditions with them. When we have wedding the people are so supportive of all of us. Their are so many beautiful places to see in Rochester, NY.
