A Taste of Irondequoit, New York

According to the 2000 U.S. census, Oakland is the second most ethnically diverse city in Alameda County, with many languages spoken. Oakland has struggled with significant challenges, including high unemployment, widespread poverty, and an elevated rate of violent crime.

In 1965, Irondequoit became part of civil rights history by being part of the first totally voluntary desegregation program ever. The Urban Suburban Program, which still operates today, was begun with 25 first graders from the inner city of Rochester who peacefully began a 12 year educational process mostly in West Irondequoit while other cities all over the country wrestled with fear and chaos due to inner city riots and violent confrontations over forced busing programs. Although small in number of students involved, the program became a model for other similar programs around the country.

The median income for a household in the town was $45,276, and the median income for a family was $55,493. Males had a median income of $41,463 versus $30,937 for females. The per capita income for the town was $23,638. About 3.8% of families and 5.4% of the population were below the poverty line, including 6.6% of those under age 18 and 6.8% of those age 65 or over.
