I live in a rural area of mid New York state. I live along the Lake Ontario shore and among a variety of Bays and Lakes. This area is very beautiful and our agriculture business is quite well. This area is mostly fruit farms and a few diary farms as well.

It is nice growing up among people that know you and just about all of your family. We do have some crime but for the most part everyone looks out for their neighbors . If I was in need of help I would know that I could probably turn to a neighbor that could either help me or give me advice on where to look for it. I would have no desire to have grown up anywhere else.

In the village there a very few nice houses, once to leave the village there are some very beautiful houses and properties.
There are a couple good businesses in this area, but to go to a really nice business most people drive to another area.
