Our Rochester Neighborhoods page provides information on the breakdown of the City of Rochester into neighborhoods and the organizations that service and support them.
The City of Rochester divides the city into four quadrants, each with its own Neighborhood Service Center, listed clockwise:
|Northeast Quadrant||Northeast (NE)||500 Norton St, 14621||428-7660||
|Southeast Quadrant||Southeast (SE)||846 S. Clinton Ave, 14620||428-7640||
|Southwest Quadrant||Southwest (SW)||923 Genesee St, 14611||428-7630||
|Northwest Quadrant||Northwest (NW)||
1099 Jay St, 14611
Bldg D/Suite 200
These quadrants are broken down into a series of neighborhoods, each with their own character. Some have official neighborhood associations that organize events and keep residents aware of changes.
A map showing the boundaries of major neighborhoods may be viewed here as a PDF. Note that many smaller neighborhoods are lumped in with larger ones.

2012-07-19 09:30:08 Local designers have just released a City of Rochester Neighborhood Map: http://www.younglionrochester.com/neighborhoods-of-rochester-map/ —JeremiahParry-Hill
Good outline, but doesn't include any streets so it's hard to determine borders. They also forgot Swillburg! And who the heck are El Camino and Lincoln Park? — EileenF
As PDub said, it's more decorative than cartographic. Personally, I was surprised that they snipped off Durand Eastman Park. —JeremiahParry-Hill
2012-07-19 15:30:19 I think it's intended for decoration not navigational purposes, try maps.google.com for that Also, Swillburg is right below Monroe Village —PDub
2012-10-17 21:03:17 Now this is way cool! Still not sure what this "Lincoln Park Neighborhood" is, though. —EileenF

Good map of neighborhood safety. —crovou718
2015-04-22 16:15:23 No, that map is terrible. What planet was the maker living on that Beechwood is a "dangerous neighborhood"? —EileenF
2015-04-26 21:58:47 Strange, people were recently discussing this on the Rochester subreddit on Reddit. They were referring to this map: http://www.crimereports.com/widget/inline?widget_id=502. One person noted that, "[If you look at the crime map], you will see that Beechwood has at least more than average crime. (Look at the last 30 days.) It's possibly being among the higher averages for an area its size.
In fact if you look at the city south of 33 (both sides of the river) and everything East of Portland, (so basically everything except about the Northwest third of the city) a vast majority of the assaults in that part of the city happened in Beechwood. That's 1 neighborhood against about 20 of varying sizes." —badfish
2015-11-03 14:08:44 Okay, so the city website has completely different info than we have here. I'll clean it up later when I don't have so much work to do. —EileenF
