Welcome to Pembroke, NY


The Town of Pembroke is on the western edge of Genesee County, bordered on the west by the Erie County towns of Newstead and Alden and on the east by Batavia. Pembroke includes the village of Corfu and several hamlets, including Indian Falls, East Pembroke and North Pembroke. Four major highways run through the center of town: Route 5, Route 33, Route 77 and the Thruway.

The village of Corfu has a thriving business district, with a grocery store, bank, pharmacy, bakery, family diner and pizza shop. For a wider variety of shopping, Batavia, a quick drive east, has retail like Walmart, Kmart, Sears and Target, as well as supermarkets like Top’s Friendly Markets.
