About Elmwood Avenue:
Some major streets Elmwood passes along the way (travelling West to East) are Mt. Hope Avenue, South Avenue, South Clinton Avenue, Monroe Ave & S. Winton at Twelve Corners, I-590, and Clover Street. Along the way it runs over the Genesee River, between the University of Rochester and the University of Rochester Medical Center, along the southern edge of the Mount Hope Cemetery and the southern extent of Highland Park.
Elmwood is a street of many uses. The western end tends to front mostly community institutions while it becomes decidedly residential as you get toward its eastern end. There is at least some retail space located near many of the major cross streets.
