Rochester, the seat of the county of Monroe, is the third in the most populated cities of New York, only behind New York City and Buffalo City. It is located on Lake Ontario's southern shores, with the Genesee River flowing through.
Rochester has earned the global city status and has been listed among the best cities to live in the United States, because of its manageable cost of living and low joblessness rates. Most of the growth of Rochester was as a result of the Genesee River, which has over the years grown to be a very active manufacturing, research, industrial, and economic hub in the region.
The history and development of Rochester have been preserved in the many museums like the doll-themed National Museum of Play, the photography-themed George Eastman Museum, and the iconic science-based Rochester Museum and Science Center. Others include the Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester and the ancient National Susan B. Anthony Museum that contains unique ancient artifacts.
Outdoor activities can be enjoyed in the Seabreeze Amusement park, crowned with vast water parks, amusement spots, and thrilling rides for the whole family. The nearby Durand Eastman Park has more fun activities featuring scenic wood trails and a beautiful beach for all the water activities.
Some of the notable buildings in Rochester include the tall First Federal Plaza, the iconic super tall Xerox Tower, and the ancient Sacred Heart Cathedral church building.
