We have lived here for almost 13 years (having lived previously in PA, CO, TN and OH) and we have absolutely LOVED our time here.
PROS: educated population, numerous cultural interests, great schools, friendly people, beautiful seasons, parks/recreation, a lot of outdoor opportunities, Finger Lakes (wineries!), easy access to numerous cities (and Canada)
CONS: it snows (it also is sunny quite often in the winter making the snow look beautiful, in my opinion!)
We have always felt that the teachers in the area where we live (Churchville-Chili school district) are excellent and often go above and beyond- very committed to their jobs and to the community. We have also found that the families on the west side of town are friendly, down-to-earth, educated people and the community, as a whole, has a lot to offer.
Unfortunately, we are selling our home and moving (job)- but if it were up to us, we would never leave the Chili area- we truly love it here!
