In the northeast quadrant of the city, Northland-Lyceum offers all the advantages and comforts of mid-century neighborhood design. The iconic 1950s Donuts Delite diner, which lies along the border at Culver Road, embodies the vintage character of this established neighborhood.
Primarily residential, Northland-Lyceum contains housing options that range from modest ranches and Cape Cods, to Colonials, to multi-unit apartment complexes. Amidst the working-class neighborhood, there is a safe and inviting atmosphere reminiscent of post WWII suburbia. Children can be found playing out front of single family homes with well-groomed yards while neighbors chat in their driveways. The strong sense of community is palpable.
Northland-Lyceum is convenient, offering easy access to a variety of small businesses and restaurants. The Bausch and Lomb manufacturing campus is situated along North Goodman Street. Durand Eastman Park is right up the road, and the neighborhood is also close to Ontario Beach Park in neighboring Charlotte. Residents can hop on Route 104 and get anywhere with ease, including the diverse local businesses as well as regional and national chains along Ridge Road. The nearby Ryan Center on the corner of Webster and Bay hosts the Sully Branch Library and School 33 in addition to numerous activities for children and adults.
Resident volunteers work to maintain neighborhood charm. There are flower pots along the roadways and the North East Area Development Inc., a non-profit neighborhood organization that also houses the Group 14621 neighborhood agency, works with residents on an assortment of community enhancing programs including an emergency residential repair program.
