Penfield is home of Paychex, the payroll processing firm founded by Tom Golisano.

Note that the Webster 14580 zip code extends well into Penfield, which results in many Penfield businesses having Webster mailing addresses. This is especially confusing for the many businesses in and surrounding Baytown Plaza on Empire Boulevard.

The 14624 zip code is pretty much Gates, Chili and Ogden with almost no area in the actual city of Rochester (other than the airport) but it's still a Rochester zip code. Funny enough, the post office is in Westgate plaza, which isn't inside Rochester city limits, either. —badfish
