Rochester, New York - 'The Gateway to the Northeast, Heaven's Outpost' 

Rochester is a city on the southern shore of Lake Ontario in the western portion of New York, and the seat of Monroe County.  

The population of the city itself (210,565) was the third largest in the state — after New York City and Buffalo — at the time of the 2010 census. Rochester is at the center of a larger metropolitan area that encompasses and extends beyond Monroe County, and comprises Genesee County, Livingston County, Ontario County, Orleans County and Wayne County. This area, which is part of the Western New York region, had a population of 1,082,284 as of the 2012 census.

Rochester was one of America's first "boomtowns." It rose to prominence initially as the site of many flour mills along the Genesee River, and then as a major hub of manufacturing. Rochester has become an international center of higher education, as well as medical and technological development.
