"Sector 5" Top 5 Page for this destination Rochester Favorite Tip by davecallahan

Rochester General: 26 reviews and 25 photos


Favorite thing: The city of Rochester is delineated into 10 individual political/social units called sectors.

Sector five is primarily the land surrounded by I-490, called the Inner Loop. In this area you will find many of the popular retail businesses and the new upscale city dwellers in historic Corn Hill District. East End is a popular cultural district with a lot of night life as well as the famed Eastman Theatre. Rochester Downtown Development Corporation has injected about 250 million dollars into the upgrade to this area in the last five years.
The old War Memorial ampitheater where many sports events have taken place has had a name change and a complete face-lift (BCBS Arena). It still is the most popular entertainment center in the city.

The whole area is a juxtapositioned island of new wealth amidst a surrounding sea of declining areas. Only the future will tell how long and strong this sector will last.
