Some of the nice urban, dense, architecturally or culturally diverse neighborhoods and the major streets that run through them.
I have read that Corn Hill is really nice. I would like to know what other neighborhoods are worth visiting?
Pics would be nice if possible?
I would appreciate some responses. Thanks.:)

Some recommendations: Park Avenue with its cafes and boutiques, East Avenue with its Millionaires Row of classic mansions including the Eastman House, University Avenue and its ARTWalk in the Neighborhood of the Arts (also check out Village Gate - a hip set of renovated warehouses containing a number of shops and restaurants), South Avenue in the South Wedge - the hottest urban neighborhood in the city, Monroe Avenue with its eclectic mix of bars and restaurants, Mt Hope Avenue's Garden District between Ford Street and Elmwood Avenue, the University of Rochester's River Campus on and off of Wilson Boulevard, the Grove Place neighborhood downtown (Gibbs St) is an upscale dense residential neighborhood, the much-maligned High Falls District is home to renovated warehouses and a view of the 96-foot high waterfalls of the same name...

I really appreciate the info.:) What would be the best map to get to see these neighborhoods and streets?

These neighborhoods are all either on the southeast side, downtown, or adjacent to downtown. Any map should be able to direct you to the right places, or get a GPS.
