Welcome to East Rochester, NY


East Rochester is only one and a half square miles; and yet it is one of Monroe County's best-known areas. Using the slogan, "the greatest little town in the world," East Rochester has forged a big reputation for offering affordable housing, strong neighborhoods, and an involved community that supports its own. Nestled snuggly between Pittsford and Perinton just beyond the City of Rochester, the town/village is in a prime location to enjoy all that Monroe County has to offer while still maintaining its own distinct identity.

Who Lives Here

Residents of East Rochester are a tight-knit group. They live in densely populated neighborhoods and fiercely support family life. Parents gather on ball fields and at school from the time their children are quite young. The district begins instruction at pre-kindergarten and the town offers junior leagues in soccer, football, baseball, softball and cheerleading.


For being such a small town, East Rochester boasts a business district that has just about all you need - a bakery, body shop, hairdresser, jazz lounge, Wegmans, fast food and fine dining, and more. Clearly, with its close proximity to the City of Rochester, all you could need is at your doorstep.

Transportation & Traffic

Rt. 31F (Fairport Road) is the main access road into East Rochester, with Washington Street and West Commercial Street serving as the two most traveled roads.
