yeah see the 19th ward--as a whole--can't really be described as safe or unsafe. there's a few areas within its limits that are completely fine and actually quite nice ; but there are also a few areas there that are probably the worst in the entire city right now.

this is pretty rare for Rochester--who's 'dangerous areas are typically easily definable, unmistakable, and CONFINED.

at the end of the day, though, use your head and you really don't have much to worry about

yeah. but i see some real potential in the 19th ward. The genessee park blvd area is nice, with a lot of young professionals living there. And the fact that UofR is spilling over into the genessee/plymouth/brooks area is going to be good for that area.

Genesee Park Blvd would be one of the most charming middle class areas of the city if it didn't have the airport literally in the backyard. Not to say that there can't be nice neighborhoods withing earshot of the airport, as there are all over the country, but it can really be an annoyance.

white_goodman- - the area surrounding both areas you are talking about is in one of the most dangerous, poorest neighborhoods in the city. Steer clear of both.

lux st? the lux st that turns into avenue D at the Carter st intersection (which is right near roycroft)? yeah, um... i'd probably go ahead skip that one.

as a rule of thumb: stay away from any area where the word 'avenue' precedes a single letter.........unfortunately this makes st paul/driving park a no-go as well.



pulaski park sits in the middle of north st, avenue d, carter st, and gothic st....you're basically screwed from every direction lol.

The Culver-Winton neighborhood might work for you. It has a few bars, restaurants etc. along Culver and Merchants.

Great map this is overall a really good reflection of the city. The one thing that I don’t agree with is that you rated the UpperFalls neighborhood “fairly unsafe” and 14621 “very unsafe”. In my opinion 14605 with streets like Lincoln, Hollister, and Reed Park are the most rundown and dangerous in the entire city. 14621 is deserving of a similar rating however it does improve drastically when you cross Norton and then north of Ridge Road it turns into a very nice neighborhood really worlds away from the others streets.
