[Conduit Question] Monroe County, outside Rochester

Anyone with local knowledge here? I'm looking at a home purchase. DIY OK in this area? Is wiring piped like NYC?

You are going to need to check with your local building officials. National codes are one thing, but local amendments are too hard to track.

It's not in the county's jurisdiction. Local codes are adopted by the city, town, or village.

I can't speak for the locality you're looking at, but generally you can do your own work as long as you pull a permit. Pipe is not usually required outside the major cities (Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse).

It sounds cliche, but the best way to find out is to call the local building inspector. I have friends who've built in rural areas of Orleans and Niagara counties, doing much of the work themselves. The more rural you go, the friendlier they are.
