Buffalo Road

Extending from Rochester's west side deep into the southwestern suburbs
Northeast - West Avenue in Rochester
Southwest - Clinton Street Road/Chili Riga Center Road in Bergen
Approx. 13.5 miles

Buffalo Road is a very long route that forms a portion of Route 33. It has its eastern beginnings in Rochester's southwestern U.N.I.T. Neighborhood and extends all the way into the Village of Bergen. Along the way, it passes through the towns and suburbs of Gates, North Chili, Riga, and the Village of Churchville. It was first developed in 1811.

Although Buffalo Road in the city is industrial in character, it gradually becomes more rural as you get further away from Rochester. The Gates portion is very inner-ring suburban but becomes more sprawl-like as you continue out. The rest is either small town, farmland, or lined with a few scattered residences.
