Who We Are and What We Do

Celebrate City Living is your resource for learning about Rochester living and city housing. The Rochester Coalition for Neighborhood Living continually strives to be a comprehensive and clear resource for people anywhere along the spectrum of interest in city living. Anchored by the CelebrateCityLiving.com web site, the Coalition also:

  • Promotes City living through the annual Celebrate City Living Expo, an informational and fun housing event, designed to give participants a taste of all the things that Rochester living provides. Expo 2017, scheduled for Saturday April 1, 2017 promises to be even bigger and better than 2016 – Save the date! Housing providers, real estate professionals, and lenders, but also furniture stores, food vendors, neighborhood and school advocates and more. Among other things, you can have a Hot Dog with a Top Dog (elected official), pick up information on R-center activities, attend a workshop on Tips for Tenants or Homebuyer 101, bring home a free book from the library, and meet with neighborhood residents who can’t wait to tell you why they love their area.
  • We celebrate different neighborhoods a few times a year, brought to you by Canandaigua National Bank. Our most recent stop, the Joseph Avenue Christmas Festival. Coming up in 2017 – Park Ave/ABC Streets, 19th Ward, and more!
  • Posts the HomeWork home-of-the-week column in CITY Newspaper, a publication with a circulation of over 100,000 that is available weekly at over 900 locations around Greater Rochester. Written by knowledgeable volunteers through a partnership with The Landmark Society, it’s a great way to get a tour of an amazing house without leaving your couch.
  • Keeps you up to date on on amazing events and activities going on around town through Facebook and twitter, and gives you a unique view of Rochester through our Instagram account (@ccl_roc) where we highlight people, places, and things unique to the city. January is Art and Artists…February is Winter Activities…March will be Rochester’s Pets!

We can’t wait to see what you find!
