Q & A

Prior to moving to Rochester, I was asked the following questions (really.)  After almost 5 years of living in the area, I feel more equipped to answer them.

Q: Do they have car dealerships there?
A: You mean those places where they sell cars? Like Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Toyota, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Jaguar, and Maserati?

Q: Is it something like Williamson, WV?
A: The population of Williamson is around 3,000.  The city of Rochester's population is around 210,000.  So not really.

Q: Are there any cultural outlets?
A: I don't get out much, but I have heard there are these things called museums, art galleries, universities, and restaurants.  Someone also told me there is a music school which is apparently decent.

Q: Is the University of Rochester a good school?
A: I'm not sure, but for some reason U.S. News & World Report ranked it the same as William & Mary.

Q: What kind of jobs do people have around there?
A: In addition to the cultural things I already mentioned, there are these other things called banks, hospitals, schools, and law offices.  I've heard that some other places actually make stuff.  And I think there might even be a few, like, corporations.

Q: Are you ready for the snow?
A: Does it snow in Rochester?


  1. Is there an airport in Rochester like one that has planes with professional pilots? Or a single strip airport where you fly your own plane like Harrison Ford?

  2. I'll have to check on that and get back to you.

  3. Based on your brutal sarcasm, it's no surprise you fit in well in Rochester..

  4. Williamson, WV is a quaint little town tucked away in the Appalachian mountains. I grew up there and it was fun but it doesn't compare to Rochester, NY Y'ALL!
