East Downtown
Owner State of New York Established 1788
Purpose City
Status Inhabited

The eastern half of downtown Rochester across the Genesee River, is a civic neighborhood of residential houses and civil service buildings, including the Rochester Town Hall. Significantly less damaged by the 2011 riots that ravaged the western side of downtown across the river, East Downtown is the sole thriving hub of the city of Rochester and a seed of hope for a better future for the city. Though skirmishes during the civil war left pockmarks of ruins across the East Downtown area, Rochester's revitalization process has pushed to demolish the worst of these buildings and repair those with minimal structural damage. As such, the east downtown region has the most new construction of anywhere in the city.
