Rochester in Monroe County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
By mid-century, many prominent older homes, churches and synagogues in the neighborhood had fallen into disrepair or had been torn down, and the land converted into parking lots.
Through the inspiration and leadership of Anne H. and Melville C. McQuay, and the creative vision of Robert Macon, an acclaimed Rochester architect, many of the remaining homes and buildings in the neighborhood have been restored and the parking lots replaced by contemporary townhomes and offices.
The McQuays sensitively restored the row of attached brick townhomes, 128-152 Gibbs Street, where they made their home for over 50 years, and lovingly called it "Townhouse". Townhouse is the historic anchor of the Grove Place Neighborhood and is recognized on the National Registry of Historic Buildings.
