Brighton has some of the most beautiful and prestigious addresses in the Rochester area. Many CEOs live in the Ambassador/Sandringham neighborhood and those streets are a "can't miss" when visiting the Rochester area. While the southern part of the town is more middle-class, the northern part, near East Avenue, houses some of the best architecture in Rochester. The town is land-locked and extensively built-out, although several new developments are planned as of 2012. Over the years, town leaders have put a priority on preserving parkland for common use. Wild turkeys can sometimes be seen in the fields just north of the 590.
Brighton is known for its large Jewish population and Monroe Ave bagel bakeries. The Monroe Avenue corridor is probably considered the town's "Main Street". It houses a multitude of great local establishments and fine dining restaurantas. Other key commercial strips include the northern end of West Henrietta Road and parts of South Winton Road. The Twelve Corners, where Monroe Avenue, South Winton Road and Elmwood Avenue intersect, is a busy commercial and civic center.
You'll find Monroe Community College in southern Brighton. There are also several private schools located in Brighton, including McQuaid Jesuit High School, The Harley School and Our Lady of Mercy High School. New arrivals in Rochester often find Brighton to be a desirable place to live because the Brighton Central School District enjoys a reputation as one of the best in the area, if not in the state. Brighton High School is the local public high school. Newsweek ranked it #47 in the nation in 20052
