...about my trip to Rochester!

by dakogline

Hello! I would like to travel from Athens, Greece to Rochester, USA and I am looking for a cheap trip. I was thinking to travel by airplane to JFK and to continue by train. I was looking for a train schedule but I didn't find anything. So I was thinking to ask for help!!!

Thanks a lot!!!

Because I don't know nothing about New York Stations, NY Penn Station is locked in the airport JFK or not? It would be easier for me to take a train from the airport.

Penn Station is on the West Side of Manhattan - about 33rd St. You'll have to get there from JFK - by bus or another way. If you look at the JFK website, you'll see all the options for traveling into NYC.

You might consider Newark Airport which might be easier to reach Penn Station from rather than JFK, however, the only direct flight from Athens to Newark is with Continental Airlines, so there airfare may not be the lowest and you may find that airlines that fly to JFK are less expensive. YOu might also consider Continental's connection to Rochester from Newark. You might compare costs between just flying to NYC or flying via Newark to Rochester. The layover in Newark is about 5 hours, but this is still less time than travelling into NYC and taking the train.

There are connecting flights from JFK to Rochester for about $100 - 125, e.g. there is a delta airlines flight connecting to Olympics direct flight from Athens. Unless there is some specific reason yopu want to take the train, you should fly. You won't save any money by going for the train. Flying may cost the same and a lot less hassle!

Travel Tips for Rochester

by p-buttercup

Go to the lake (Ontario) and have a hot dog and a vanilla shake at Schallers. I grew up in Rochester, but now live 700 miles away. I miss being so near water and mountains. Where else can you go boating in the summer or skiing in the winter on a week night after work?

Sector 8

by davecallahan

The city of Rochester is delineated into 10 individual political/social units called sectors.

Sector 8 includes these neighborhoods: Northland; Culver-Winton; Federal area; Homestead Heights; Laurelton; Browncroft; Blossom; Beechwood. Many years ago we used to live in the souther part of the Browncroft neighborhood, when it was still a vibrant part of the city. Much of this sector is starting to see a slow creeping-in of the city decay that exists in sectors that are just west of Sector 8.
This sector is bounded east-west by I-590 and Goodman Street and north-south by route 104 Seaway Trail expressway and University-Blossom streets.

Browncroft still has some of the large homes and wide streets with dogwood and magnolia trees on the front lawns. Beechwood is another area of nice older homes where the population is growing old and beginning to sell out to rental property owners. That is usually the first step in the decline of areas in Rochester.
Culver-Winton is still an active area with businesses, homes and religious centers owned and operated by the Jewish community with an injection of eastern European emigrants.
The Federal area and Laurelton area have begun their downward turn economically but at a very slow rate; the mainstay of Italian and Polish families in the area are trying to keep the decay at bay.
The area from Clifford/Empire north to the 104 Expressway has had a more rapid decline rate and can be a rough neighborhood to travel late at night.

The city has several plans on the table to try to revitalize this sector but nothing definite has been proposed yet other than the establishment of Neighborhood Watch groups (citizens banded together with law enforcement help to deter the increase of crime in the area).

Turkish Festival

by davecallahan

In mid-June annually, a two- day festival celebrating Turkish arts and culture is held in Rochester. This colorful festival allows area Turks to put their culture “on display” for all Rochesterians. The Womens’ Committee puts together a yearly "Foklor" a traditional Turkish dance. For the male members of the society, there are usually nightly gatherings for prayer, discussions or just fun.

Live music and dancing (mostly ethnic in origin and presentation) are provided for your entertainment. Artisans in arts and crafts tents will be selling their wares and food vendors will entice your taste buds with regional foods.
Entrance is free and you pay-as-you-go for any of the events that require money.

to get there:
677 Beahan Rd
the old Party House property
I-390 to the chili avenue exit, go west on route 33A to Howard-Beahan Road intersection then go south on Beahan to just before the railroad tracks

Packing List

by nuker

Very warm clothes in the winter. A lot of snow falls in Rochester and the temperature is below freezing a lot of time, especially at night. Moderate and comfortable in the summer, but can get hot & humid. Rain gear and warm clothes. Hiking/mountain boots. Most people wear hiking boots in winter to work and going out.
