Rochester NY Commuting
Rochesterians are fond of saying it takes at most only twenty minutes to get from any point A to any point B you choose in the Greater Metro Area. And it's true, even in rush hour. The expressways can carry you from The Preserve at Wood Creek to the Greater Rochester International Airport or any regional mall in twenty minutes or less.
