Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of New York's counties, including Genesee, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Bergen.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Bergen - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a village (such as Bergen). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Bergen or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Bergen) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Bergen.
