Greece like any other large town tends to segment itself along invisible lines called neighborhoods. The exact boundaries are fuzzy and change over time but people in those areas know which neighborhoods they live.
Greece neighborhoods are:
Barnard... where I once lived; near Maiden Lane and Dewey Avenue
Braddock Heights.... http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/d6398/cc7dd/
Crescent Beach... http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/d6398/ccad2/
Elmgrove... industrial-based area along the Elmgrove Road and I-490
Grandview... north of Greece between Long Pond Road and Lowden Point Road

There are rides for kids as well as adults and games with prizes for children. The food ranges from hots and hamburgers to fudge and candy apples.
They have a clambake tent and a beer tent (adults only). There are raffles and drawings for prizes.
Fireworks on Friday and Saturday nights. All day Saturday is kids day with half price on all childrens' rides.

entrance at Pomona Drive at 350 Maiden Lane (between Mt. Read Blvd and Dewey Avenue)
The Street Machines club of Rochester has an annual car show in the second week of June.
This year (2007) it was at Badgerow Park in Greece on 11June. There were 100-120 cars there of all different vintages and modification level. Everyone was trying to show-off his or her best features (engine, exhaust, chrome, interior, color scheme.)
See the website below for the next scheduled car meet. And we'll see you there.
