Perry is in rural Western New York State roughly one hour from both Rochester and Buffalo.
It was named after Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry.
A United States President spent part of his childhood there.
During the Winter it experiences the Buffalo snowbelt.
It has four distinct seasons.
“The City” to some is Rochester and Buffalo to others. My brother and several friends to include Tom and his brother Ken, along with Sam, Dave, and I all delivered newspapers from one or both of those cities.
Champion, Archway, The Perry Knitting Mill, and Kaustine Tanks were major employers at one time.
One of my older sisters took part in a letter-writing campaign to all the towns in the USA named Perry during her early school years. I recall that there were 22 at that time.
