The Town's 41.78 square miles of land area is located along eight miles of Lake Ontario's south shore, and is bordered on the east by the City of Rochester through which runs the Genesee River. The topography of the Town of Greece is similar to many regions in western New York whose myriad of streams and ridges were carved out of the land by the glacial mass during the last ice age.
The Town's main topographical feature is the Ridge running east-west through the southern portion of the Town. A natural roadway for the native population of the region, it would later become the "Honeymoon Trail" for countless couples on their way to Niagara Falls. North of the Ridge lies flatland leading up to Lake Ontario, along the shores of which lie many sandy beaches, wetlands, and numerous bays and ponds, all supporting an abundance of waterfowl and other wildlife. South of the Ridge, the land rolls gently to the New York State Barge Canal, one of the great engineering feats of the early nineteenth century, and then southward into the Genesee Valley.
Like the early days of American expansion, the Town's development is from east to west. Commercial and residential development is concentrated in the east and south, while the west remains mainly undeveloped, consisting of farmland and dense woodlands. The industrial park of Eastman Kodak Company is located along the southern portion of the Town.
