The Italians in that part of the city ran away to Irondequoit back in the 60's and 70's. I think it's mostly puerto rican and black now.

I think that is somewhat harsh. Perhaps a more accurate description of the people living in that area of Clifford Ave would be lower income. It is a very diverse neighborhood and not just Puerto Ricans & Blacks. It is an area of lower cost houses and lots of cheaper rental properties. And yes, as a result it is the area with more crime. Of course... those who plan to live in Pittsford and staying out of the city would "never" dream of driving there.

I grew up in marketview heights around Clifford Ave. There are still a good amount of Italians, mostly middle aged to older folks though. I still have some younger cousins in the neighborhood. There are stil a few Italian owned stores (barber shops, Savoia's, Fioravanti's), but much of the area is Black and PR.

Default Italian markets????

Since a few of these posts mention Italians, Is there a good italian market up there, Italitan items you can't find at your local grocery store. ?

There are plenty. I buy lots of my stuff from a local Italian deli. There are several that stock hard to find items that you would not find at a grocery store.

Italians make up the second largest ethnic group in the Rochester area after Germans I believe.

i pine for rochester like a long lost lover. one of my favorite places on earth. rochester is really dog friendly, very walkable community. apartments dont generally have yards at all but walking your dog dusk and dawn will become one of your favorite times. always something to see. festivals out the ying-yang all spring-summer-fall long. yes i agree with lake ontario beaches are nothing to right home about for you but your dog will love them. try hillside dr. , park ave on one side cobbs hill on they other, cutest little elementary school in the middle. this area feels like suburbia but is right in the middle of the city. i do know that education, medical and wegmans are major employers in the area. im in resteraunts so i dont have to much more info on income expectations. hope you get enough info on rochester and areas. maybe ill see you there i thankfully get to move back this summer after 7 yrs in salt lake city and give my kids a chance at a real education. theyre 1.5 yrs behind kids in roch. good luck
