"South Avenue is convenient for U of R"
I like South Avenue, I have lived close to it in the past and there are plenty of areas around South Avenue to get a beer, grab some lunch, or walk along the sidewalk. There is some crime, which is a deterrent for families. MacGregors bar is within walking distance and serves over 60 different types of drafted beer, its a definite stop on the way down South. South leads to Monroe that will take you downtown, and is a fast way to go from U of R to downtown Rochester.
