"Sector 9" 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.
The Zipcode 14621 is essentially Sector 9 in Rochester. Sectors 9 and 10 are the areas where many of the cities murders occur and where the largest city decay is seen. The sector is what is commonly refered to as a "diverse" neighborhood, with strong Hispanic and African American influence. Light industry sits in among vast stretches of rental properties and abandoned houses. Specialty shops (ethnic foods and clothing) and tatoo parlors are frequently seen along the main arteries.
During the day the landscape is bleak but at night it is definitely dangerous. This is not an area where tourists should roam without a local guide.
The boundaries of Sector 9 are: Genesee River, Goodman Street, route 104, Clifford Avenue.
During my youth, this sector was a strong Italian and German area which has gradually been changing to the present situation. It has always been a rough area of the city.
