Also known as B.E.S.T. and Neighborhoods United, Bull’s Head is a crossroads near the bustle, history, and diversity of the West Main Street corridor. An early addition to the neighborhood was an 1816 country public house that stood at the intersection of “Buffalo Street,” now West Main Street. “Bull’s Head Tavern” served as a rest stop for cattle drivers passing through. In 1857, Rochester’s first hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital (now Unity Health) began in a stable nearby..
Adjacent to Center City, the neighborhood offers easy access to the workplaces, culture, recreation, and goods and services of downtown, and within the neighborhood itself you’ll find a variety of friendly neighbors dedicated to the resurgence of this dynamic area.
Neighborhoods are living breathing entities, which can change over time. Although we have tried to capture the essence of this area, the Coalition will be reviewing information twice a year to determine if any updates should be made. If you have suggestions for an update, please contact us and we will consider it at the next review.
