I have lived in Kutzky Park for four years and can assure you that it is a safe neighborhood suitable for families. We actually tend to experience fewer break-ins than many of the supposedly "safe" neighborhoods further away. There were supposedly issues a decade ago, but they are now long gone.

I walk every day to and from the hospitals and feel safe at all hours. We are walking distance to shopping, banks, dry cleaners and restaurants. The Kutzky Park Neighborhood Association is strong and it's great to see many homes being rehabilitated and bought by growing families. Frankly, I wouldn't live anywhere else in Rochester.

When I first moved to Rochester I took my 2 young children to play at Kutzky Park. I witnessed what I know was a drug deal and never went back. And less than a year ago, there was a brutal rape of a Mayo Clinic nurse in her Kutzky Park home by a stranger. Yeah, the neighborhood looks cute and is very close to Mayo, but no thanks.

Drug crimes will happen in any park in Rochester. It's a sad fact. The rape that you mentioned did happen, but the offender was caught.

The local police do a great job in keeping crime down to a minimum in general for Rochester! The Kutzky Park area in general is a very nice place to live and is walking distance to St. Marys, the downtown area and the shopping mall. For a very objective resource checkout which shows all the police calls to any area in Rochester you are interested in.
