If you're not familiar with the area, there are many adorable towns between Niagara Falls and New York. One of them is Candandaigua, NY

The name Canandaigua is derived from the Native American word “Kanandarque”, which means “chosen spot”. It was the site of the principal village of the Seneca Indians and is the legendary birthplace of these “People of the Hills”.

The story goes that the Seneca Indians looked at this beautiful area, with it’s rolling hills and sparkling lake and declared it “The Chosen Spot.”

Canandaigua was founded in 1791. No doubt Canandaigua is filled with endearing history, and the beauty of a New England resort town.  At Christmas, Main Street becomes something out of Norman Rockwell, with decorations and lights.

Old Brookside is an exciting community in Canandaigua, located off of Buffalo Street. The land is mixed with rolling hills, mature trees, green space, kiddies' park, and sunny open spaces. The community offers ponds stocked with fish, a pedestrian trail, and maintained open spaces.  It has the convenience of close proximity to all of Canandaigua's shopping and dining amenities.
