Page 2Page2Volume 7, Issue 3IT TAKES A VILLAGEKristineTHE LANDMARKSOCIETYHOME AND GARDENTOURIS COMINGTO OURNEIGHBORHOOD!Mark your calendars!!!The Landmark Society ofWestern New York, one ofoldest and mostrespected preservationgroups in the country, isholding their 38th annualHouse and Garden Tour inthe Highland ParkNeighborhood onSaturday and Sunday,June 7 & 8, 2008. Homesare being selected fortheir unique architecture,history and style. Moredetails to follow!FredrickSome people areafraid of teenagers. Otherpeople find them amazingcocoons of future adultsthat’s me. I work with teensand consider it my privilegeand obligation to interact withthem. I can see what is scarythough. Teens test out everything, bad language, meanpranks, social boundaries,and even crime. They alsoneed supervision, and independence to test out theiradult responsibility, life andwork skills, and growingknowledge base.In our neighborhoodwe have many young teenswho are home alone in thesummer and after schooldays, testing their responsibility, until the parents comehome. This is normal, it is notpoor parenting. What happens when parents are awayat work? Teens gather at onehouse or another, play videogames, go to the rec center,ride bikes, take walks. Thatmight get pretty boring after aweek or two. We don’t have asummer camp or volunteerprogram for our kids here inthe Highland Park neighborhood, so my teen neighborsplayed badminton for a weekor two, then some other streetgames, then they discoveredthe pinecones under aneighbor’s tree and decidedthey would be great artilleryfor war games in the street.Later I walked past as theywere sitting in a differentneighbor’s yard. I always greetthem and say something acorny, old-fashioned adultwould say. “How are youguys? You look bored.” Or,“Does Ms. So and So knowyou are in her gardens?”Last year when I waswalking home from my aunt’shouse on Ashland Street, Iwas whistled at on NicholsonStreet by some boys whowere middle school age. Ilaughed at them and toldthem I was old enough to betheir mom. They gave me afresh reply about how that’sok they were “grown”. I explained that there are niceways to be friendly and sayhello to they ladies in theneighborhood and gave someexamples. They were verygiggly boys and gave up onme with an, “Okay miss havea good day.” They never didget my digits, but they learnedsome boundaries.Your boundariesmay be different than mine,or than the parents of theteens you encounter aroundhere, but learning that different people have differentboundaries is a valuable lesson for young adults. So whenkids litter on your lawn, it maybe news to them that somepeople don’t like trash in theyard. Or if your youngneighbors sit on your car theymight not realize that there isany difference between sittingon your steps and sitting onyour car. They are not omniscient, so be friendly:“Whatcha doing there Jake?”and be firm, “Don’t do thanany more buddy,” “That ruinsmy paint job,” “Do I have toclean up after you,” or “Doyou wanna help me here?”Feel free to add some cornyexamples, “When I was a kidmy dad woulda kicked my butif I did that ”Adults give off mixedmessages about boundarieswhen they don’t maintaintheir property. So if you areannoyed by the trash, graffiti,or foot traffic in your yard,step back and have a look: isthe paint peeling, siding damaged, landscaping overgrownwith weeds, stairs broken?Are drugs being used or soldon my property? Giving a clearmessage that you care aboutyourself and your property cantake the place of those conversations with teens you areuncomfortable having.Young people appreciate honest praise and asincere interest in theirneeds. They need a healthycommunity. Don’t ignorethem; be a part of thathealthy community by interacting in a healthy way whenyou need to.Join the Highland Park Neighborhood Associationand help support your neighborhood! 10/ yr per household.

T h e H i gh l a n d P a r k B u z zPage3HALLOWEEN PARTY AND PARADEMeghan Delehanty—ReddingtonEvery outdoor event planned for late October in Rochester should come witha rain date. The annual neighborhood Halloween Party and Parade is no exception.As advertised in the last newsletter, the 3rd annual party was supposed to be heldSunday, October 28 at the Meigs St. - Linden playground. But the changeableweather made things a bit complicated. After a few phone calls and a chalkboardplaced at the entrance of the playground announcing a rain date, families were informed of the change to Tuesday, October 30. What a great decision this proved tobe! Party and parade day brought much warmer temperatures, some sunshine andbetween 30—40 kids ranging from ages 0—5 years old.Thanks to neighborhood volunteers, the event included donuts on a string, ascavenger hunt, a piñata and a parade! Neighbors contributed candy treats for allthe neighborhood kids to share. The Highland Park Neighborhood Association provided donuts and cider. A good time was had by most if not all! Mark your calendarearly for next year’s 4th Annual Halloween Party and Parade the Sunday before Halloween.SPECIAL MENTION TO OUR BUSINESSCONTRIBUTORS FOR “TASTE OF THENEIGHBORHOOD”Sahara Mediterranean Eatery , 798 S Clinton Avehttp://www.saharaeatery.com/South Wedge Diner 880 South Clinton http://rocwiki.org/South Wedge DinerGeorgie’s Bakery 857 South Clinton Ave http://www.georgiesbakery.com/Salvatore’s 1018 South Clinton AveRochester Meats 815-819 S Clinton Ave. http://www.rochestermeatsny.com/The Black Pearl 791 Meigs StGranny’s Ice Cream Parlor 793 S.

My name is Paul Urai and I have been appointed Neighborhood SecurityCoordinator. I have walked Pac Tac for several years and regularly attend PCIC meetings. Iwant to do what I can to keep our neighborhood a safe place to live and work. Any securityissues, crime trends, etc., can be brought to myattention via email koenig@rochester.rr.com.Call 911 if you see a crime in progress. Also, Lt Frank Churnetski at the NET Office is willingto hear our concerns and can be reached at 428-7640.Recently, he warned us about the homeless bottle collectors. They seem harmlessuntil they are in our back yards and on our porches taking more than bottles. We are encouraged to donate our bottles to charities such as the Boy Scouts. Please do not encouragethese collectors to be in our neighborhoods.While Christmas shopping please keep items in your trunk or out of site in your car.Car larcenies are up this time of year. Don't give thieves a reason to break your windows.This is also the time of year for door to door scams. My general rule is let NO ONEin. They may ask to use the restroom or for water , but often this is just so they can caseyour home. If you want to give, they can wait on the porch. Trust your instincts. They are usually right.We have also been having a monthly neighborhood Pac Tac walk. We meet the 4thWednesday of the month (the Wed. after our neighborhood meeting) at the NET office on846 S.

We are skipping Dec. as it is abusy month for us all. Hope to see you out there.GEORGIE’S BAKERYMatthew Carnevale“Fresh is best,”agreed George Ruiz andhis son Chris when Istarted our conversationby asking them what setsGeorgie’s bakery apartfrom all the other bakeriesin town. Georgie shouldknow-as a fresh arrivalfrom his native Puerto Ricoto Rochester in 1976, hesettled on Gregory Streetwhere he met his soon tobe wife Liz who grew up onSanford Street. They havebeen married for thirtyyears. Their three sons,Georgie, Chris, and Ian, allattended School 12. Georgie, Chris, and Chris’s wifeKiyomi, work with Georgieand Liz in the shop. Lizruns the front end anddoes the books; she’s theorganizer in the family. “Icouldn’t do it without mywife,” confesses Georgie,who runs the kitchen andis responsible for thefreshness and consistencyof the large variety of quality foods that are createdhere.Georgie started inthe bakery trade as ayoung man in 1979, goingto work for one of the largebakeries. He’s worked fora few actually, and hasseen Rochester’s highsand lows in the form oflayoffs and slowdowns,and what for him was theturning point and the seedfrom which Georgie’s Bakery would grow: his lastemployer asking him tosign up for a pay cut. “Nomore working for someoneelse, we cut where wecould, we committed to 80hour work weeks wherethe day begins at 6AM,and applied our personalpride and determination.”Liz left her job as a homehealth aide and the bakerywas opened in May 2005.But this made from scratchbakery is really only a smallpart of Georgie’s: Soups,Chili, Submarines, andAmerican or Spanish platters. Specialty Breads. Spanish Pastries. Friday Fish Fry.On Saturdays, people startlining up early for Georgie’smom, Carmen, to come inand prepare some traditional Spanish dinners. Ifyou haven’t been in yet, introduce yourself to one ofour great Highland Parkfamilies.http://www.georgiesbakery.com857 South Clinton Ave.,Rochester, NY, 14620.Hours: Mon-Fri. 8 A.M.-6P.M., Sat. 8-5.

T h e H i gh l a n d P a r k B u z zPage5Page 5INTRODUCING THE LOGO OF THEHIGHLAND PARK NEIGHBORHOODMichael TombLong before the park and lilacs came to be,there existed an arboretum and nursery known throughout the world. The logo for the newly re-named HighlandPark Neighborhood pays homage to this history, evenwhile presenting a striking and modern design. This isimportant because Rochester’s newest neighborhood(albeit in name only) is also one of its most storied. It isthe area from which one of Rochester's nicknames, “TheFlower City” was derived in tribute to the thousands ofacres of nursery stock and the millions of specimens oftrees that grew within the city’s borders in the later1800s. So when, in early 2007, volunteers from theHighland Park Neighborhood formed a “Logo Committee”, the committee’s charter was to create a design thatembraced the history of the area as well as the vibrantpresent day community. While the eclectic, familyfriendly neighborhood may be one of Rochester’s bestkept secrets, the park within its borders is a well knowntreasure. The Logo Committee decided early on that anew logo should incorporate a reference to the historicarboretum that makes Highland Park a special placeevery month of the year (and not just for the lilac festival!). In addition, the new symbol needed to convey thatthe neighborhood was an inviting and fashionable placeto put down roots. These decisions eventually evolvedinto the stylized tree that gracefully anchors the currentdesign.Trees are more than just significant to theneighborhood’s lore. Within this region of the city, twoimmigrants to Rochester, George Ellwanger and PatrickBarry created a nursery of such botanical diversity andworldwide fame that it contained thousands of varietiesof trees and shipped extensively to destinations all overthe continent and beyond extending even to Australiaand Korea. The apple farms of western New York as wellas the fruit laden valleys of California, in fact nearly everysubstantial planting of well known or unusual trees andshrubs throughout 19th century America can be traced backto Rochester’s nursery industry. In a sense, these city fathers, Ellwanger and Barry, (in whose honor the neighborhood was formerly named,) also contributed to its updatedname. For it was the donation of their “Highlands”, and theirdream that the hilltop acres should serve as a living museum of all the rare varieties of trees and shrubs availablethrough the Ellwanger & Barry Nursery, that served as thebasis for Highland Park.In a nod to this history, the swirling design of Highland Park Neighborhood’s logo is reminiscent of the style ofArt Nouveau. The Art Nouveau movement, expressedthrough the genius of Gustav Klimt, Candace Wheeler orLouis Comfort Tiffany, was a worldwide sensation contemporary with birth of Highland Park. So in this sense, while thelogo is most apparently a design for the 21st century, it stillretains echoes of the late 19th and early decades of the 20th;for that was the era when the neighborhood first began tothrive. Even as Ellwanger and Barry turned much of theirnursery grounds into housing developments for the boomingcity, the decorative arts were also evolving into a timelessstandard that is reflected within the logo.The exceptional design was the work of the Christopher Communications agency under the direction of owner(and Highland Park Neighborhood resident) Chris Christopher. In total Chris’s staff submitted four basic designs forconsideration and then, working with the Logo committee,went on to develop several more variants. While the qualitywas such that any one of the designs would have served aneighborhood proud, the logo committee eventually settledon the most whimsical and friendly of them all. In the coming days wherever the logo appears, such ason stationary, flags or t-shirts , it is hoped that the excitingdesign will serve as the new symbol of the Highland ParkNeighborhood.Come One, Come All!!!

However, likemany excellent corporations and organizations,we can’t rest on our laurels and must strive tocontinue to improve ourneighborhood.How to make ourneighborhood better:1. Be an ambassadorfor the neighborhood.Invite friends from thesuburbs and other partsof the city to hang outhere. Whether it’s having food and drinks at alocal establishment orplanning a play date atthe Meigs and Lindenplayground, expose others to all the greatthings this area has tooffer. At work and withfriends, talk about howmuch you enjoy theneighborhood and encourage those lookingfor housing to check itout. Word of mouth is agreat marketing tool.2. Shop locally. Theneighborhood is hometo a number of greatshops and restaurantsthat need our support.By keeping your moneylocal, you’re keepingstorefronts full and sidewalks thriving, thusmaintaining the safetyand appearance of theneighborhood.3. Maintain theneighborhood. If you goout for a walk, take asmall plastic shoppingbag to pick up errantpieces of trash. Whilenot glamorous, it sets agood example for othersand keeps the neighborhood looking great.4. Don’t be afraid toover-invest. While making improvements to ourhome, our mortgagebanker second-guessedus, saying, “You know,you’re really overimproving for yourneighborhood.” Well, ifneighborhoods are toimprove and thrive, weall need to over-invest.Whether it’s time,money, or effort, give alittle more of yourself tokeep this neighborhoodgreat – I’ll bet you get agreat long-term returnon your investment inthe form of greatneighbors, ease of living, and being a part ofa wonderful community.Who’s Who or New In The Hood?We would like to extend a warm Highland ParkNeighborhood welcome toGena Merliss, Jack Peltz andtheir daughter Graycie of Mulberry St.Gena and Jackmoved here from Boston inAugust so that Jack couldattend the Doctoral Programfor Clinical Psychology at theU of R.

The neighborhood association in the 1960’s and 70’s stood fast against aplan to route an expressway through the middle of our current neighborhood; imagine where we’d be now had thisplan gone through! I often look at our some particularly dysfunctional elements of our city and suburban neighborhoods and wonder “how’d that happen?” When the voices of residents aren’t heard ugly buildings get built, trafficgets routed ignoring pedestrian routes and changes occur which slowly erode desirability of a neighborhood. Theneighborhood association is a vehicle to help us organize and amplify our voice. We are fortunate to have a NEToffice which functions well, a Neighbors Building Neighborhoods (NBN) organization with vision which we feed intoto help solve local issues on a citywide scale.As we prepare for and celebrate various religious and secular holidays we are reminded of the many things thatneed our attention and just how busy we all are! Our board includes folks who are very, very busy. Our neighborhood organization can do things with you, not for you! We need your support and help. Join the garden committeeto help beautify the neighborhood. Join us to help organize a neighborhood festival. Help us deliver and producenewsletters. Help solve a neighborhood problem.Hope to see new faces with fresh ideas.Happy Holidays to everyone!
