"Parks and Bars"

There are some really lovely parts of Mount Hope Ave. The Mount Hope Cemetary and Highland Park are nearby, and those are both beautiful. University of Rochester is also nearby. There are a couple of bars and restaurants on this street because of the college population. The Distillery is pretty much the local college bar. I also love the Mount Hope Diner. A good street, some crime though. If you're going to live here, make sure you can tolerate living near a lot of college students.

"Important street that transects Rochester and University of Rochester"

Mt. Hope Avenue is one of the streets in Rochester that gives you access to the city directly and quickly, but also a street that can take you out to the mall and other suburbs southeast of the city. It is a 2 lane street both ways, and has a diverse group of retail shops. Close to the University, it borders Mt. Hope Cemetery (an attraction in Rochester) and several nice bars, including the ever-popular Distillery located close to U of R. Its a good street, but not great to live on, due to traffic and crime.
