Wood booths with black and red naugahyde; blac-white checkerboard tile floors; old posters on the walls;...

Henrietta Shopping

  • old but still hanging on...

    This was the first plaza area in Henrietta and a favorite of some of the old timers. It has been overshadowed in recent years by the much larger and more popular Market Place Mall just down the street. But South Town Plaza is still the strip mall of choice if you want computer supplies, fabrics and cut-rate clothing. CompUSA and Computer City,...

Henrietta Warnings and Dangers

    by davecallahan Written Mar 9, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Henrietta, NY is rated in the top 10% of safe cities in America. There are only 3 sex offenders registered in the area (you have a better chance of winning the lotto than seeing a SO in Henrietta). It is really a safe place.

    My sister-in-law has lived there for years with her kids and never has had a single problem.

    So as long as you use common sense, you should have a happy and safe time in your visit to Henrietta.

    Admission is free; but you have to provide the foot power to get around the park.

    The park is 68 acres of wildland with footpaths and boardwalks throughout to allow handicap access to flora and fauna. Along the paths there are offshoots and blinds so that you can observe nature without intruding.
    The total path is about 2 miles and has access to fields of flowers and woods with trees full of birds and a rock glen where snakes tend to congregate.

    Restroom facilities are in the Hansen Nature Center located near the parking lot.

    Special events (bee keeping, how to bird watch, civil war expose) are scheduled throughout the year and details are available at the nature center or by calling the number below.

    to get there:
    1525 Calkins Road
    I-390 to the Jefferson Road exit. go east on Jefferson to Pinnacle Road. go south on Pinnacle to connect to Calkins Road and then go east on Calkins and see the signs

    open Tuesday to Saturday 8am-9pm
