January 2020

Hi neighbor,

We hope you've had a great start to 2020! Here's what's new and notable in and around the neighborhood.

Take part in a Rochester place-names project

How much do you know about why Rochester's neighborhoods, streets, and landmarks have the names that they do? (Neighborhood of the Arts is an easy one!)

U of R grad student Megan Eichas is conducting a study of place names throughout Rochester, and she's looking for interviewees from all over the city to talk about what these names mean to us. If you'd like to take part in this neat venture, check out the information sheet for details.
As the Eastman continues its historic restoration and construction of the new visitors center, the museum reopens at the end of January but the mansion remains closed until mid-February. The Dryden and the café are scheduled to reopen in June. 
Each week, the city highlights weekend events and activities in all four quadrants. You can now find these on our website or stay updated by adding our RSS feed to your reader. 
In June 2019, NY State passed the new Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act. Rochester is still studying the opportunities for rent stabilization, but tenant protections are in place now that affect both renters and landlords. The city put together an overview of the changes, and the Housing Council has free resources to help tenants and landlords with questions. The Legal Aid Society of Rochester is also available to assist tenants in court. 
The Rochester Police Department has started a newsletter for 2020 to provide information and updates to the community. Download the first issue, or visit the city's RPD page to learn more. 
Around NOTA:

- The Memorial Art Gallery hosts Black History Month Celebration Day on February 9, from 12–5. During February break (2/172/21), the Creative Workshop presents Art Day Camps for children 612. 

- The city of Rochester's Black Heritage Committee has music, art, dancing, and celebration events planned from February to April at various city venues.

- For more February art, music, food, and fun, check out the MetroPops event listings. NOTA spots are always well represented!
