Does anyone have an opinion on Post Ave. in Rochester. My son goes to RIT and is looking at renting a house with some friends. Thanks - any info is appreciated.

That neighborhood is called the "19th Ward," it becomes mixed the closer you get to the 390/airport. The closer you are to the corn hill neighborhood the better, its not a part of the city I goto alot.

Has some good areas. Has some sketchy areas. Is your son a stereotypical RIT kid or does he have some street smarts? I could see a college kid being taken advantage of in that area if he lives closer to Chili Ave instead of Genesee Park Blvd.

Someone else started a thread about Post here last week, I think. At any rate, a few pockets along Post Ave. hang on, as I say. I DO know that a few parts of Post south of Brooks are OK, but, it's been about 8 or 9 years aince I last darkened the door of a house on that street, so, who knows if things have changed. One post alluded to the UofR student housing along S. Plymouth as being a decent area (don't know, myself). I DO know there are lots of students in that small neighborhood right near to the park, the river, and the bridge (around where Highland becomes Scottsville Rd.), although traffic is bad around rush hour time. I think that's where the Greek houses are. This is the area near to the foot of Genesee St., by that hotel and whatnot project they broke ground on a few years ago (I don't know if that became a reality).

I DO know most of the area around Genesee Park Blvd. is decent/good, in fact my dad and his girlfriend live on that street, and have not had any problems. I'd stay away from Arnett, at least between Genesee Pk. and Thurston. Just airport noise and the occasional loud car stereo along most of Genesee Pk. Good neighbors, diverse area, mostly quiet (no real problems). Now, 1500 feet away on Thurston is another story...

I remember the area off Genesee Park, in from Chili and close to the canal, was a solid area with lots of students. Forget which side street to turn down, but, typical 1900-1920's solid houses with lots of room, good landlords, mostly single family (even the rentals), quiet area (no drug houses, etc.).
