I was thinking to move to Lincoln Ave. how's living at there? does it a safe or dangerous place to live at due to crime? Does it a boring place there?

It looks like a working class area that is decent, but I'm not sure about the crime or other possibly issues in the area.

Not a huge crime area, but it's in an industrial area. You are right next to factories.

It's mostly quiet, over there. The old Lincoln Ave. Kodak plant has been divided up into a variety of low-impact manufacturing, mostly. Same with the old Gen. Railway Signal area over by West Ave. Quiet area at night, and fairly low crime, as in nobody really bothers you over there. There's a rail yard near to there but it's mostly used for its sidings. Most of the noise you'll hear is from the airport, and it's reasonable.

My dad lived further down Chili Ave. (on Appleton) for years, and never had any problems although he was close to a bad area. I'd say the Lincoln Ave. area is generally safe, it's kinda poor and working class. Lots of well-kept homes and whatnot, as I remember, which indicates it's a mix of single family/duplexes with owners on site, and rental properties. I used to take Lincoln as a short cut from West Ave. to see family on Genesee Pk. Blvd.

One thing to consider when it comes to city living in Rochester is whether you're close to amenities. There's a Tops supermarket on West Ave. Other shopping you'd have to do in Gates and Chili, which is fine considering the great variety one can find in both towns (supermarkets, delis, bakeries, etc.).

I bought my first home on Wilbur St (runs into Lincoln Ave) back in the 80's and I never had a problem. My kids walked to #44 school and we walked our dog all around there on Lincoln, Copley and Stanton. Mostly working class families on edge of 19th Ward, zip is 14611 though. You will get used to the train and planes but mostly pretty quiet.
