The city of Rochester is more energetic and more accepting of minorities (of all kind) than the suburbs, I've noticed. Well, at least on Monroe Ave. If given another opportunity I would try and live in the same neighborhood. Maybe on a different street just to see what its like. Just walking around the neighborhood and seeing what it has to offer is enough to get me to renew my lease.

Well Rochester in general is an awful place to live if you don't want crime. We're ranked pretty high in terms of most violent cities. But my area, there's not much crime, well, at least what I've seen. The worst vandalism I've seen is on a fresh fallen snowy night someone drew crude penises on everyone's back windows of their cars in the snow. Gave me a chuckle.
Lots of taxes, and failed services. Without RPD we would all be screwed, but they're pretty crazy at the same time. Fire and EMS is exquisitely designed. Not a lot of publicly funded community centers out there. Most come from membership or church. Recycling program is pretty dang good.
