FUN FACTS

The Neighborhood of the Arts (NOTA) is one of the most eclectic and bustling residential neighborhoods in the City of Rochester. Over the past decades, the area has been reinvented to center around an ARTwalk, weaving together several of Rochester’s finest art institutions and installations. 

 

NOTA is trademarked by the flatiron building that divides University and Atlantic Avenue. At the front of the building sits Matilda’s, an eatery serving delicious meals, coffee and alcoholic beverages in a comfortable environment. Along the side of the building are several other enticing restaurants including Just Juice 4 Life and Edible’s. However, the dining options in NOTA extend beyond the confines of the flatiron building. The Village Gate, an old warehouse off of South Goodman Street, has been converted into a hub for restaurants and bakeries, containing dozens of diverse eateries in its walls. On Russell Street, Old Pueblo Grill and Glen Edith Coffee Roasters are both popular spots for quick eats and delicious brews.

 

It’s easy to get involved in the arts and cultural scene in the Neighborhood of the Arts! Head over to the Memorial Art Gallery to view hundreds of pieces from artists across the globe. Or, check out some of the work created by local makers at the Anderson Alley. If you’re in the mood to tap into your creative side, check out the Rochester Brainery. This community learning center offers hundreds of classes on everything from plant care to jewelry making! Alternatively, you can head over to Writers and Books to sign up for one of their interactive and engaging creative writing courses.
