If only a large metropolitan area could offer all of the following:

• a reasonably healthy economy

• exceptional public education and high educational attainment

• elite music and art

• innumerable leisure activities

• remarkably affordable housing

• strikingly short commute times

• some of the safest weather conditions in the country

• near universal health care

• solid public transportation

• a culture of ingenuity

• an overall tradition of acceptance

Believe it or not, such an area exists. The only catch is that popular perception actually makes the area seem undesirable. Rochesternomics provides data-driven insight to overcome popular perception and illustrate why Rochester, New York, is this hidden gem.

In 2010, for no apparent reason, he convinced himself and his wife to move to a place where they knew absolutely nobody: Rochester, New York. In between trying to raise two children, he and his wife are both practicing physicians.
