Architecture For Lunch: Eastman Theatre/ Grove Place
June 27, 2014 @ 12:10 PM - 12:35 PMFree
Explore the city’s glamorous East End cultural district in the heart of downtown Rochester. We’ll meet in front of the world-renowned Eastman Theatre/Eastman School of Music, a gift to the Rochester community in the 1920s from Kodak mogul George Eastman. We’ll visit the last remaining VIctorian residential district in Center City, as we stroll historic Grove Place and discover its quaint 19th-century architecture, whimsical public art, pocket gardens, and dramatic 20th century buildings. One of the city’s most dynamic neighborhoods, the East End has history, art, restaurants, and activities for all ages, interests and appetites!
Meet at Eastman Place plaza, on East Main Street/corner of Gibbs Street, opposite the entrance to the Eastman Theatre. Paid parking is available in the Main/Scio St. ramp garage, as well as on-street metered parking along Gibbs Street.
