Two things dominate life in Brockport. First is its location on the Erie Canal. The village, in fact, calls itself "The Victorian Village on the Erie Canal." This beautiful area is defined by historic homes and a well developed, recently remodeled, canal area. The canal front hospitality program includes a Welcome Center where volunteers greet boaters and visitors and provide all they need to enjoy their stop in Brockport - from fresh coffee and a shower to free internet and laundry facilities. The second predominant feature of life in Brockport is the State University located here. As a college town, the culture is continuously enriched by students and faculty, making the village rich not just in history, but academics and the arts as well.
