Fairport is a village located in the town of Perinton which is part of Monroe County, New York. Fairport is a suburb 9 miles (14 km) east of Rochester. It is also known as the “Crown Jewel of the Erie Canal”. In 2005 it was named as one of Money Magazine’s “Best Places to Live”
From its earliest days, the presence of the waterway helped transform what had once been known as Perrinsville into a very “fair port” for an overnight stay by passing travelers. The railroad came to Fairport in 1853, making this growing community one of the leading centers of transportation and industry of its time in all of Upstate New York.
Today, the great packet boats and barges of an earlier era have been replaced by recreational boaters, canoes, kayaks and tour boats, while the old towpath serves the leisure-time interests of bikers, joggers and walkers alike.
With its quiet, tree-lined streets, specialty shopping and front porch friendliness, Fairport Village offers contemporary living at its very best.
