ARTWalk is much more than an urban art trail. It is an award-winning pedestrian-focused and pedestrian-friendly "redo" of the entire public realm of what was originally called the Atlantic University neighborhood just southeast of downtown Rochester.

This is a fun part of town with interesting art installations, but the big draw is the number of restaurants offering creative and fresh cuisine. Some of them are so hip and offer the requisite creative craft cocktails.

OK, so what else are you going to do in Rochester in the summer? At least this is a pleasant and visually interesting experience. It's also encouraging to artists and a joyful, peaceful use of public space. Worth a look.

The city fathers took a dilapidated area of Rochester, and created a beautiful art space. There are many incredible sculptures located through the neighborhood. There is even the Memorial Art Gallery here. This venue adds to the beauty of Art!

Unbelievable is all I can say about Rochester's top neighborhood. Public art galore, new restaurants, antque stores,bakeries,and now a microbrewery. Every month thier is an announcement of a new business coming to the area. Take a walk through and you will be surprised.

There was not much art along the ARTWalk. Rather disappointing. The mosaic light poles were kind of neat, but other than that, there really was just not enough art to justify calling it an art walk.

Take a walk and see some art. You can literally park your car, walk around and see some funky art. You can stop for lunch and walk around the area and have a fun afternoon out. I happened to be in the area shopping for...More
