The Finger Lakes REDC

In 2010 Forbes rated Rochester as the 3rd best place to raise a family.

Named for the 11 long, narrow lakes through the southern counties, the Finger Lakes also includes the City of Rochester, the third largest city in New York State. In 2010 Forbes rated Rochester as the 3rd best place to raise a family.

New York's largest wine-producing region with more than 100 wineries and vineyards.

Rochester is an international center of higher education, medical and technological development, with acclaimed universities such as the University of Rochester and the Rochester Institute of Technology as well as major corporations such as Xerox, Kodak and Bausch & Lomb. Outside the Rochester area, agriculture (especially dairy farming) is an important economic driver.

The Finger Lakes, besides being a popular tourist destination, is also New York's largest wine-producing region with more than 100 wineries and vineyards.


Vision for Accelerating our Transformation

The Finger Lakes region will accelerate its transformation to a diverse, knowledge-based economy by building on strengths that include renewable natural resources, a talented and highly educated workforce, a historic commitment to innovation and philanthropy, leadership as the state's top agricultural region, international recognition as a center for optics and photonics, and national leadership in per capita intellectual property and degrees in higher education. We will expand a successful history of collaboration between public and private institutions to optimize our region's performance in advanced manufacturing, the arts, tourism, and basic and applied research in medicine, science, engineering, and technology. Through these efforts, we seek to become a national leader in innovation and commercialization with the long-term goals of increasing job creation at a rate that exceeds national levels and enhancing the region's quality of life to attract and retain business and our citizens.
