SPECIAL EVENT | "Better Block" Pop-Up 

A section of Arnett Boulevard in Rochester's 19th Ward Neighborhood will transform this Saturday with pop-up restaurants, stores, a yoga studio, and other local vendors. The "Better Block" project will open in the Arnett Trolley Stop District, between Rugby Avenue and Wellington Avenue. The project is part of a nation-wide movement that aims to demonstrate revitalization possibilities in neighborhoods by hosting pop-up shops and modeling how alternative transportation, like biking, walking, and public transit, could be efficient in the area.

Along with stores and restaurants, this event will also have activities for children, community bike rides, fitness activities, a beekeeping demonstration, and live music. The building located at 362 Arnett will anchor the Arnett Trolley Stop District on the west end, and will be filled with Better Block vendors and events. The east end will be anchored by the Grimshaw building.

The Arnett Trolley Stop District "Better Block" project will take place Saturday, April 25, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Arnett Boulevard, between Rugby and Wellington Avenues. More information can be found at
