About Genesee Street:
Genesee is a short main north-south street in the 19th Ward in the City of Rochester and intersects with major east-west streets and routes including West Main Street, Arnett Boulevard, Columbia Avenue, South Plymouth Avenue, Brooks Avenue, Elmwood Avenue, and Scottsville Road. It also carries Route 383 for several blocks.
The structures along the road are heavily mixed in nature, including the substantial Brooks Landing development and much smaller commercial establishments like Jim Dalberth Sporting Goods as well as lower-income housing, rental properties and apartment complexes. As the western defining road of the Genesee-Jefferson Neighborhood, it does see substantially less development than the adjacent 19th Ward and Corn Hill neighborhoods. Crime continues to be a problem along this road into 2008, particularly north of Brooks Avenue.
Route 383 travels southeast as South Plymouth and then Brooks Avenues until it makes a left turn onto Genesee; it then runs along Genesee for a short six blocks until it bears to the right as Scottsville Road. At this intersection with Elmwood Avenue, Genesee continues southeast as a separate street bordering Genesee Valley Park.

2008-07-31 02:05:10 The only part of town I've been mugged in! The mugging was nearly ten years ago, for what it's worth, but I still get a bit nervous when I'm in the area at night. If you see a swarm of young men out for a late-night group jog: run! —MariahBetz
