Why you'd want to live in Corn Hill
Corn Hill, Rochester's oldest residential neighborhood, is also one of its most diverse. Its boundaries begin on the east along the bank of the Genesee River and move north to Interstate 490 with a twisting, turning Ford Street marking its western and south edges. Corn Hill is well known today for its annual events. Each August for two days, more than a quarter million visitors pack its narrow streets for the Corn Hill Art Festival which originated in 1968. Also, each summer, the Clarissa Street Reunion brings current and former residents together with visitors for a music-filled event on a street that was once referred to as “Rochester’s Broadway” because of its jazz clubs. In recent years, a private developer erected Corn Hill Landing, a mix of apartments, restaurants, and retail shops alongside the Genesee River via City Info!
