I don't like to be negative, but I have to be honest. I have been living in Batavia, New York for quite some time now. I have stayed hoping to see things get better because it really does have the potential to be a nice place. However, between the terrifyingly high crime rate, the bad schools (insanely high dropout rates and very poor graduation numbers), people who won't do any sort of maintenance or upkeep on their property, a sinking job market, and some pretty undesirable characters who live here, I have to say this is not one of the best areas in New York to call home!
If you do choose to come here you will find a few activities for fun. We have Escape-ology escape room experiences, the Jell-o Gallery, Make Time for Kids fun center for children, and my favorite, The Indigo Insight supernatural readings.
I wish I could say more positive things, but there just isn't very much good to say because there isn't very much good here.
