|Surrounded by Verona Street, Brown Street, the Genesee River, the Inner Loop, I-490, and Morris Silver Way|
Officially called the High Falls Heritage Area and Brown's Race Historic District, this is the downtown neighborhood centered on the High Falls. The City invested millions in the 1990s to turn it into an entertainment district; unfortunately, this failed. Since then, however, the High Falls District has rebounded as an office district, boasting (as of October 2015) a 96% occupancy rate while the rest of downtown struggles to fill its office space.1 The Kodak Headquarters are currently in the process of being converted to MCC's new downtown campus.
The High Falls District also has a growing residential population.

2008-07-16 23:50:00 being near "'hood like' areas" is a lot different than being "hood." You people really need a reality check —JohnJoseph
2011-09-25 17:22:23 This area is most certainly not "hood." It's actually quite nice and the fact that it's "dead" is really too bad. Has a couple nice shops and amazing views. —EileenF
