Browncroft Boulevard refers to the portion of Atlantic Avenue that runs eastward from the city's Browncroft neighborhood; through a small, northernmost section of Brighton; and then into Penfield after crossing Irondequoit Creek. The border between Rochester and Brighton is Interstate 590, where Atlantic/Browncroft also becomes known as NY Route 286.

Important intersections are Merchants Road, Blossom Road, and Panorama Trail. Also of note is Old Browncroft Boulevard, "the pre-divided highway alignment of Browncroft Boulevard which is now discontinuous near its midpoint."1 Today this is only a heavily wooded, dead-end residential street.
