Rental in Rochester NY

Anyone have a recommendation on a real estate company or rental agency for Rochester New York? I'm moving from out of state and need a rental in a safe area near downtown.

Any info on Rochester would be helpful. Is public transportation usable? Safe areas to live? Fun things to do?

Haven't lived in the area in years, but Park Ave always seemed one of the more vibrant neighborhoods. The City paper is the city's version of the Voice.

I lived in Rochester for a number of years and never used a real estate company for an apartment. However, I highly recommend the Park Ave or East Ave area. Portsmouth (which is off East) is also nice.

As fo public transportation... not so much. I'd suggest a car. Oh, and definitely hit Park Ave shops, the Little Theatre and The Distillery for fun. Also check out Water Street Music Hall for music. The Bugjar and Lux are great bars.

Second/Third for Park Ave / East Ave area. Good stuff, good times.

There's a diner nearby that is across the street from an older theatre called the Highland Park Diner. Soooo. good.
