Downtown Rochester holds the seats of the City and Monroe County government along with state and federal courts and agencies. Located on the banks of the Genesee River, it is the commercial and cultural hub of a five-county metropolitan statistical area with a population of more than 1 million people. Our Center City is home to more than 3,000 residents and the workday destination of more than 50,000 employees and their clients.

Downtown landmarks include the internationally renowned Eastman School of Music, the Eastman Theatre, the Strong National Museum of Play and the world headquarters of the Eastman Kodak Co. The Rochester Red Wings Triple A baseball team and the Rochester Americans, our American Hockey League team, draw thousands of visitors to downtown Rochester each year. Parking garages, surface lots and metered spaces enhance downtown's accessibility.
