Goodman Street


Goodman Street is a long north-south route extending from southeast Rochester - almost into Brighton - up to Irondequoit. East Avenue divides it into North and South Goodman. The two differ greatly in terms of character. The south is by far the more vibrant half.

Approx. 2.8 miles

North Goodman Street is the northern portion of Goodman Street. It is divided from South Goodman by East Avenue in Rochester and eventually enters the suburb of Irondequoit.

City of Rochester

Traveling north, North Goodman begins in the East Avenue Historic District and passes through the Neighborhood of the Arts. Here you will find the Memorial Art Gallery, Anderson Arts Building and the Village Gate. The road then takes an abrupt left and becomes Circle Street, which intersects with East Main. North Goodman resumes slightly further down by the Hungerford Building, which includes a small dead-end portion cut off by the railroad tracks. It would appear the street's original route predates the railroad and was disrupted by its construction.

Continuing along through the city's Northeast Quadrant, North Goodman now forms the border between several neighborhoods. They are:

Important intersections in the city are University Avenue, East Main Street, Webster Avenue, Bay Street, Clifford Avenue, and Norton Street. The latter forms the border between Rochester and Irondequoit.
