City of Rochester

Hudson Avenue in Rochester is impoverished and occasionally dangerous. Especially to the south, it is marred by abandoned buildings, vacant lots, and slumlord housing. Indeed, the homeless shelter [WWW]House of Mercy serves some of the city's most downtrodden residents. Hudson nevertheless has some active clusters of retail, mostly corner stores, beauty salons, and cell phone places. Several establishments attest to the area's rich history of Eastern and Central European immigration.


Hudson Avenue becomes increasingly commercial as you get closer to Irondequoit, although things quiet down and residential use returns north of Hill Court Circle.

Irondequoit Plaza, Ridge Hill Square, Hudson & Ridge Hudson Plaza are several shopping centers located just off Hudson Avenue that back up to it.
