Pittsford is a beautiful small town with amazing schools. My favorite part about Pittsford is the Village. It’s a cute little spot with small shops and boutiques that you can walk around in and it is right next to the Erie Canal! There are awesome restaurants like Hungry’s and you can always grab a bite to eat and feed the ducks after! Everyone is generally very polite and happy, there is rarely any crime, and it is a very clean place to live.

Pittsford is a welcoming community with amazing schools, an amazing village, and safe neighborhoods. There is always something to do in Pittsford and the area is very safe and friendly. There are lots of shops and grocery sores nearby. The food and restaurants here are amazing too with a huge selection of different types of food!
Well, I wish the traffic conditions were better in the sense of filling in potholes that have been there for years, as well as just paving the roads more in general. In addition, any construction project that takes place, even for a very small building, takes years and years to build. The schooling is amazing, however the taxes and affordability overall is pretty expensive, no matter where you go. I feel there should also be more more restaurants nearby, due to the selection in Pittsford being very limited. Many people, including me, have wanted a local diner in Pittsford for years, but no one has stepped up to the plate yet. Overall though, other than those minor grievences, I feel Pittsford is an outstanding place to grow up in.
