Welcome to Rochester, New York! You’re going to love it here! There have been countless words written about New York’s third largest city (after New York and Buffalo) and it’s safe to say that Rochester means different things to different people. Some like the city’s dynamic offerings of art and culture. Others enjoy Rochester’s commitment to higher education and still more individuals are drawn to Rochester’s checkered history which dates back to the late 19th century. Whether it’s dining, shopping, parks and recreation or even professional sports, Rochester, New York is indeed a special place. The only ingredient missing is YOU.
Art and Culture
That Rochester is home to Memorial Art Gallery and the Contemporary Art Center (which together showcase thousands of works of art while creating opportunities to exchange ideas and promote an interactive environment for artists and audiences) doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what the Roc has to offer. There’s the Museum and Science Center, the Strong National Museum of Play, The George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film and dozens of private gallery’s and theater. The Eastman School of Music showcases international and local talent as does countless other venues dedicated to bringing music to the masses.
A Slice of History
Rochester may be moving forward in the 21st century but it cherishes it past. The city still maintains pockets of history and none is more apparent than one of Rochester’s most frequented quarters found along upscale Park Avenue.
First laid out as an avenue in 1852, it originally took shape as three separate streets: running from Alexander Street to Goodman Street. Conversely Bates Street ran from Barrington toward Culver Road. The three were joined in 1875 and renamed Park Avenue..
For decades, Park Avenue has remained the place to live, shop and play for people of all ages and appetites in all seasons. Within the confines of several blocks, residents and visitors alike have their pick of ethnic restaurants, side-walk cafe’s, pubs, and specialty boutiques. And what makes Park Avenue even more attractive is everything is available by foot.
Pick a street, any street off Park Avenue, and a bevy of historic homes in a pleasing variety of architectural styles are found. Tudor mansions are companions to Prince Anne cottages; older brick apartment buildings share space with single-family homes. Landscaped lawns compete with shade trees, garden sculptures and flower gardens to create a truly unique environment.
Rochester certainly offers shopper’s a full-scale pick-and-choose adventure thanks to the Eastview Mall, Outlet Mall and even the Rochester (outdoor) Market. But more and more shoppers are discovering a full range of boutiques and shops that cater to avante garde and ethnic fashion tastes.
Did Anyone Say Wine?
If you were ever wondered about where to find a decent bottle of wine in and around the city of Rochester, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to discover the problem isn't finding a good bottle of Cabernet, it's deciding who to purchase it from!
The “who” on this case regards the 34 or so member wineries that line the ever-so-stunning waters of Seneca Lake and in turn create what is affectionately known as the Wine Trail.
Fortunately Rochester’s local climate not only supports the growth of native grapes and premium hybrids but also more delicate varieties such as Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir.
While you mull over which wine to have over dinner, consider the following popular locales:
Penguin Bay Winery: 6075 State Road 414. Hector NY. Phone 607-546-5115. Awesome lake view and equally impressive wine selection. Penguins on Seneca Lake? Not quite. The winery supports the penguin exhibit at the Syracuse Rosamond Gifford Zoo.
Caywood Vineyards: 9666 State Route 414. Caywood NY. Phone 607-582-7230. A restored barn from the 1800's is where you'll hang your hat while you enjoy a variety of wines at one of the areas largest vineyards.
Miles Wine Cellars: 168 Randall Crossing Road. Phone 607-243-7742. Off the beaten path and well worth it. One of the few places where you really can sit at the waters' edge and enjoy a glass of wine.
Consider picking up the Seneca Lake Wine Trail map and guide. It will aide you in your travels while educating you on an incredible variety of well-produced and delicately nurtured fine wines.
The Fun Never Stops
It’s all out there waiting to be discovered. Now whether “it” comes in the form of a day at the zoo, a walk in the park or an evening at the theatre may depend on the time of day or even the season. But one thing is certain: Rochester New York is YOU.
