After World War II, America built an incredible amount of housing to meet the demand that had arisen during the war and immediately after as new families formed and the Baby Boom began. In the case of Geneva, much of the postwar housing was built west of Nursery Avenue. It was situated on large lots with open space nearby. Over the years more housing was added but the neighborhood still benefits from a remarkable amount of green space: the attractive yards, the public parks and substantial undeveloped land. As a result, this green haven has the advantage of openness while still being easily accessible to downtown, the retail center on Hamilton Street, and the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station.
Identified unused city lot at Reed and High Streets and requested permission to manage some improvements on the site. Resident volunteers transformed this lot into a beautiful place of neighborhood pride, in 2012.
