2005-08-02 12:06:00   Is Irondequoit an incorporated municipality? Why do they use "Rochester" in their mailing addresses? Or is Irondequoit just too hard to spell? —TobinFricke

2005-08-02 12:09:10   An inner ring suburb is one that is adjacent to the city. Typically it would have experienced booming growth in the 1950s and '60s and then stalled out and/or declined in subsequent decades as people sought to flee to more remote communities. As Irondequoit and Brighton became more or less fully developed, people started looking towards Webster, Penfield and western Wayne County in pursuit of suburban happiness.

2005-08-02 12:14:09   Mailing addresses are a quirky thing around here. Same issue for Brighton, Greece and Gates. We're also fairly unusual in that several of our zip codes cross city/town lines. As a Gates resident I'm pretty sure I pay higher insurance premiums than I should because most of the 14606 zip is in Rochester. —JohnMoriello

2006-10-27 16:02:24   It may be that all 146 zip codes are considered "Rochester." —WalterNickeson
