Where Roots Grow Deep
The Beechwood Neighborhood
In Beechwood you'll find handsome and hardy homes that have much of their original elements intact. Yet many owners have incorporated modern features such as finished attics and renovated kitchens to augment their homes' classic characteristics. What's more, you'll find these houses on beautiful tree-lined streets, and you'll find them unbelievably affordable.
Take Vermont Street, for example, where tenderly cared for older homes run substantially less than $100,000. You'll also find that for the affordability there's no tradeoff of choice or character. The neighborhood's gleaming new Thomas Ryan Community Center, named after one of Rochester's great mayors and citizens, embodies in many ways Beechwood's focus on community and service.
Beechwood also offers a nice blend of residential and industrial/commercial areas, which means most of what residents need is within easy reach. In fact, many people who live in Beechwood can easily walk or bike to work, goods and services, libraries, parks, and more.
The neighborhood's cultural character includes unique organizations such as the Museum of Kids Art.
