Front St, Rochester NY, 14614 [Directions]
Part of one of the older neighborhoods in the city, West of the river and opposite of Old Rochesterville
Runs Northwest from an intersection with Andrews Street to the Central Avenue at the Inner Loop

Originally called Mason Street, Front Street is now mostly empty, surrounded by parking lots and a large, fenced-in area. That lot was the site of the Rochester Gas Company (later to become part of RG&E). The plant manufactured gas from coal and was a NYS DEC toxic waste site. The lot has since been cleaned up and is supposedly available for development.
