FUN FACTS

If you're looking for a neighborhood that combines natural beauty with the convenience of city living, 14621 should be the new place to call your home. Minutes away from miles of recreational trails, this charming district is home to the Genesee River Gorge and the historic Seneca Park Zoo. 

 

14621 takes pride in the rich history of immigrant success in their neighborhood. On Hudson Avenue, you can admire some of the businesses and establishments that still stand from 19th-century "Polish Town." Here, Stanislaus Kostka Church, built in 1909, hosts the annual Polish Arts Festival, a summer celebration that brings out hundreds of vendors and artists to the district each year. 

 

Today, the neighborhood's diverse cultural heritage is represented by the shops and restaurants along La Avenida (North Clinton Avenue). In the summertime, this street welcomes hundreds of individuals marching in a parade for the Puerto Rican Festival. Visitors can grab a bite to eat from a variety of Hispanic and Latinx restaurants, including El Pilón Criollo or Sobrinos. Afterward, patrons can indulge in a sweet treat from Ridge Donut Cafe, a family-owned and operated pastry shop.

 

A typical day in the neighborhood could include a morning kayak ride on the Genesee River Gorge, an afternoon stroll through Seneca Park Zoo, and a walk through history on the campus of the Rochester School for the Deaf. Located on St. Paul Street, the institution has been serving the deaf community for over a century, gaining international-notoriety for its programs and services. The scenic campus sits only blocks away from Old Carthage, the earliest settlement and river port in Rochester, established in the early 1880s.
