Greece is the largest town in the Monroe County/Rochester metro area. It goes from the northern city border all the way to Lake Ontario, with neighborhoods running the gamut from working class to affluent to semi-rural. A comfortable place to raise a family, with the largest school district in the county. Lake Ontario (which is more like an inland sea than a lake) provides beaches, boating and parks. Ontario Beach Park (locally referred to as Charlotte--with the emphasis on the last syllable...) is a lovely older park with an antique carousel, beach, boardwalk, community center and hosts lots of events and festivals, like movies outdoors in the summer, free concerts, etc. Housing is very affordable--you can easily find a nice 3 bedroom/2 bath home anywhere from 75,000 - $150,000 (and up if you want to get fancier). Plenty of rental options as well, from single family houses to upscale condos. Many distinctive neighborhoods within the town. Unity Parkridge Hospital is centrally located. Excellent library system. Commuting to downtown Rochester is an easy 15 minute drive from just about anywhere. Niagara Falls is about an hour and a half drive, Toronto about two and half hours. (NYC is about a six hour drive). This is upstate New York, so winters can be long and tiresome, but not unbearable. One drawback is no "village center" and a lot of suburban sprawl along West Ridge Road-huge mall and many, many shopping areas.
