Welcome to Rush, NY


The Town of Rush, comprised of over thirty miles, is a largely rural area boasting wide-open spaces and wooded areas. Lying about twelve miles from Rochester, the region serves as a commuter community, offering a quiet place to raise a family in a closely-knit community. There is an active Lions Club and Rotary Club; and youngsters are involved in a variety of organized activities including Scouts and the Trap & Skeet Club Youth Program.

Who Lives Here

People who reside in Rush appreciate its safe, small-town quality. Comprised of rolling hills and quaint villages, families feel exceedingly comfortable here.


Rush offers convenient access to the Monroe County townships which are closer to the City, and to Rochester itself. That is where the majority of jobs, shopping and further services are located, but I-390 is easily accessed from Rush, so you are easily connected with the rest of the county.

Recreation & Entertainment

The Scottsville Road and East Henrietta Road area offers several restaurants to enjoy; but for most services you may need to head to a neighboring township.

Transportation & Traffic

Rt. 15 A (E. Henrietta Road) and Rt. 251 (Rush Scottsville/Rush Mendon Rd.) are the main junctures in the town of Rush. Occasionally vehicles can get bogged down in the area, especially during festival times, but you don't expect much traffic under normal conditions.

Pros & Cons

Country living awaits you in the Town of Rush, promising clean air, open views and a sense of belonging. Golf, hunting, fishing and other leisure activities are right here. Commuting to Rochester or one of its closer suburbs will most likely be necessary for work, however.
