As many of you know, this weekend was a very bad one for the Northland-Lyceum neighborhood on the city's northeast side. With 3 nonfatal shootings at Norton Village, a bank robbery at the Citizen's Bank on Waring Road and a murder on Woodman Park, between Culver/Waring and Clifford, I have never in my two decades of living in Rochester seen such violence in this area, and as far as I know there has NEVER been a murder in this neighborhood before this weekend.

As a resident of Northland-Lyecum this concerns me greatly. On top of the violence this weekend, these was a death in Irondequoit very close to this neighborhood. I have also noticed a gradual increase in suspicious activity around the intersection of Culver and Norton, as well as everywhere west of Waring Road. Long gone are the days when Northland-Lyceum was a quiet residential area full of older homeowners where the most activity you will find is a gathering at Donuts Delite on a Friday evening. 14621 is now creeping its way over. This neighborhood is going downhill, and fast.

Sad.

Has it been this way all year or was this just an unusual spike in crime?

I've always been curious about Northland-Lyceum and Homestead Heights. You never hear about anything about those neighborhoods. Is there anything else you can tell us?

Yeah they are, or were generally quiet areas. Zero commercial development has gone on here worth noting since I've lived here. Overall they are still fairly nice during the day. However, like I said things are changing fast. I've been the victim of crime. There is a significant change in the types of people coming out at night, and just a new feeling in most areas. The general rule is changing from avoiding anything west of Goodman, to anything west of Waring. Soon it will no doubt be Culver. 10 years ago I think these neighborhoods were beautiful. The homes along Rocket Street, Culver and Woodman are very nice. Even closer to Irondequoit they are well kept and the are are many attractive tree lined streets. I first noticed a change a few years ago. At the corner of Culver and Norton we now have a smoke shop (you can guess what this has brought to the area), a liquor store (likewise), a discount furniture store and a ghetto corner store. Waring Plaza is dead save for the Post Office and a very run down Family Dollar. In my opinion Northland-Lyceum is still a fine neighborhood, but I would not recommend investing in a home here for the long term.

Bausch & Lomb probably has the most stabilizing effect on the neighborhood.
