a city in new york whose economy is pretty much screwed, and where nobody actually wants to go, due to its high crime rate. there is, however, a sort of charming quality about it which persuades people to stay. in the suburbs, of course, so you don't get shot.

The shame of New York. There are a lot of gangs, a lot of violence, and for awhile we had more murders per population than good ol' NYC. The city used to be a nice place and a economic boom-town, but now it just spreads a cancerous wave of crime and sleaze to the suburbs. Its to the point where suburban kids are getting drive-by'd. The city is full of various "scenes" who vie for pretentious supremacy. The city lives off of garbage plates and keystone.
"Fuck man, did you hear about (name withheld)?!"

"Yeah, they shot him 5 times on his goddamn porch"

"I hate Rochester. Lets go get a garbage plate."

A town in Upstate NY. It is a very crumby town. It is very diverse and it has a great park avenue. The girls here suck. Most of the hot ones come from suburbs like Greece, Pittsford, and East Roshester. Anyways there is a lot of violence in the cut ecspecially in the east and west side. The east side has a lot of bad latino gangs that harass people and they are known for selling drugs and stealing parts from local hondas. They usually sell them back to you painted because they are good painters. On the west side there are a lot of African American and Vietnamese gangs. The worst African Americans are located on the Dewey ave. region from what I have heard. They are known for their ruthless ways. They sell drugs but the Latino's are much more efficient. They are also known for their crappy old cars riding on 22's. Also dont get in the way of their chicken dish becuase they will defend their chicken at all costs ecspecially when they are tuning into "crunk music". The Vietnamese are located on the west side also. They sell drugs ecspecially ecstacy. That is why they have twin turbo 350z's and Infiniti's at such a young age. The white people are known for their prostitution rings. It is true the Lyell ave. region is flooded with prostitutes looking for an easy buck. Other than that it is an okay town.
Person 1: Dude what should we do for Spring Break?
Person 2. I have a buddy from Rochester he can hook us up with that pill.
Person 1: Really? Sweet! Is Rochester better that Syracuse.
Person 2: Hell yeah! They have the Rochester Rhyno's and the Buffalo Bills camp not to mention the Rochester Plate.
Person 1. Cool sounds like a plan. Let depart for Rochester in the Morning before this Vicodin kicks in.
Person 2. Dude are you alright? Dude! Dude! BILLY NO!!!

1. A person who is not traditionally considered attractive for reasons such as appearance, personality, ect.

It is a reference to Edward Rochester the love interest of Jane Eyre, a character from a book of the same name.
Person 1: I really think I'm attracted to William in history class.

Person 2: well sure he is kind of nice, even though he isn't all that attractive. I guess you are into Rochesters huh?
