Spring is here, believe it or not, and despite the cold and the rain brighter days are just on the horizon. Case in point, the annual North Winton Village Association Plant Sale. Come see us at the lot on the corner of North Winton Rd. and Humboldt St., and pick out some plants and flowers for your yard or as wonderful gifts for Mother’s Day. …
Come learn about what’s new in the neighborhood, meet the neighborhood association board, and hear from Captain Lloyd Cuyler from the Rochester Police Department. We hope to see you there!

We’re fortunate to live in North Winton Village during such an exciting time in the history of our neighborhood. Lately, we’ve been getting a lot of positive attention with home values rising, NeighborWorks Rochester supporting and promoting the Triangle, and exciting businesses joining our old favorites. Here’s an update on a few new businesses we’ve been keeping an eye on. …
Mayer Paint & Hardware, which has been located on North Winton Rd. near Blossom Rd. for 51 years, was the featured small business in a story today by the Democrat and Chronicle. A neighborhood icon, Mayer’s has played a role in repairing and improving many of the homes in North Winton Village.
As you may have heard on social media, print, or on television, there were at least two acts of arson this week in our North Winton Village neighborhood. Not only was this arson, this was also a hate crime. At least two Gay Pride Flags have been burned while still attached to neighbors’ homes. Confirmed are one on Atlantic Avenue and one on Marion Street.
As a neighborhood, we will not tolerate hateful acts towards our fellow neighbors. We will also not tolerate any kind of property crime in our area. North Winton Village has had a proud history of supporting and looking out for one another in times of need. We are all neighbors, and many of us are also friends. That is what makes us strong and the best neighborhood in Rochester — not because we always agree, but because we all want the best for our neighborhood and our neighbors. There have been many neighbors and friends who have reached out asking what they can do or how they can help. If you have a flag or choose to purchase one, display it and show we stand united against hate and crime in our neighborhood.
There will be an event this Saturday — organized by our neighbors for our neighbors — to show their support. All are welcome to attend.
