Oxford Street is a beautiful residential street in Rochester's Southeast Quadrant. Its route takes it through several of the city's hottest neighborhoods: Monroe Village, the Park Avenue area, the East Avenue Historic District, and the Neighborhood of the Arts. Oxford is also considered to be the western border of the Park-Meigs Neighborhood. Living here puts you within easy walking distance of many opportunities for art, dining, nightlife, and shopping.
The Oxford Mall is located on Oxford Street between Monroe Avenue and Park Avenue and it is well known for its magnolia trees which blossom every spring, for a brief but dramatic display around the first week of May. Some old post cards for Rochester would use drawings of this street in full bloom.
