A upstate NY city in which the main attraction are the filthy panhandlers downtown!
Believe me....you want to avoid that "attraction" in downtown Rochester!

A city in Upstate NY with a population of 220,000 Metro pop. 1.1 million. Has really bad winters, but perfect summers and falls. The downtown area is improving itself in great strides, and the suburban areas have been ranked some of the best areas to live for years. (Greece is 5th safest city in America, Brighton has one of the best school districts, Rochester region the most educated medium sized city in America) So suck it. All of the people on here who are bashing Rochester need to get a life. They are most likely from Buffalo, which is jealous of Rochester because the Buffalo area is losing population, and the Rochester area is gaining population. Rochester has Kodak, Xerox, Baush&Lomb, Wegmans, Chase-Pitkin, all headquartered here, and the University of Rochester is a leader in the fields of engineering, medicine, and dentistry. Buffalo HAD the steel industry and Buffalo Wings, and that is it. They need to stop bashing Rochester and focus on improving their area.
Rochester is better than Buffalo, get over it.

The city with the highest rate of gonorrhea in the United States. Wonderful.
Things to pack when going on a trip to Rochester: a snow shovel and anti-STD spray.

A city in western New York that has nothing going for it at all.....a large city that is literally hemorraging it's citizens to other cities or the outer suburbs at the minimum.......even most of the airlines are abandoning their mainline flights to Rochester and replacing them with their little "jungle jet" feederliners!
John: Damn, this downtown area and the city in general is as deader as a doorknob!

Dave: Yeah, look around......nothing to do at all since The Mill shut down 27 years ago and all these beggars begging for money!!!

A cold boring city for people who want to grow old in their young age. A city where the extent of a night out is going to a lame ass bar and getting a hot plate. Guys are all jacked up on steriods becuase they have to make up for their half brains and personalities. Girls are all dirty arrogant NYC wannabees or washed up HS hotties turned fat. Got the rich in east and the italians on the west. Its still the place you always remember but never go back to.
Hey Philly, see that girl

Yea, what about her she is disgustingly fat.

Well, that is Tara. Remember her?

Yea, wasn't she one of the hottest whores in Gates?

Yep, its a Rochester tradition! Girls get fat and keep the attitude.

A extremely dead city in western New York State which has fallen stoneages behind neighboring cities such as Syracuse and Buffalo. ROC is merely a skeleton of its former self. As a Rochester native, I should know.

With all of the crime and lack of anything to do meaningful there, Rochester wonders why nobody wants to live there.
