Corn Hill


As a kid, I would walk the endless maze of streets lined with historic and beautiful homes filled with the crafts of talented artists, and wonder how so much beauty could fill such a unique neighborhood.

 As my mom and I would get lost amidst a sea of diverse people, paintings, jewelry, clothing, and those beautiful homes, I found myself falling in love with the neighborhood and the city of Rochester.

Years later, I still make a point of getting lost in the Corn Hill neighborhood during the festival as I love being reminded of the hidden gems this city has to offer, particularly in the Corn Hill neighborhood.
