Living in the suburbs, I'm sheltered from much of the violence that occurs throughout the city. However, the daily news stories that depict murders and homicides reminds me of just how dangerous this city is to live in. I believe that police do the best they can to limit crime, but there are just too many individuals who take it upon themself to start trouble.

This is a great community on the whole, especially for young professionals who are able to find a job. However, the job market for science majors is not great and makes it rather difficult to be positive about the future in this respect. I think if I had to do it again, I would be willing to live here for a couple of years, but I'd prefer to find a slightly better city somewhere a little warmer.
Overall, great place to grow up. I lived on the county boarder, so I got the best of all worlds - Perinton electric, Victor Schools, rural surroundings, and minutes away from the mall and highways.
