Rochester in Monroe County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Genesee River
It meanders northward to Rochester, where it feeds the Barge Canal, laps the shores of Genesee Valley Park and the University of Rochester's River Campus and extends north to the Couth Street Dam.
From the dam, it dips under Main Street and other bridges to plunge over the 96-foot Upper Falls and two lower falls, then flows gently past Seneca Park. Views from 13 traffic and 5 foot bridges afford Rochestarians a view of the Genesee's dramatic path.
