Washington Square Community Association

Welcome to Washington Square


The Washington Square is a thriving neighborhood in downtown Rochester (NY) with a mix of residential, creative, and business activity. With brand new apartments along the Genesee River, a Cannon that has recently been refurbished, a SkatePark that is being built, and a public Promenade for all to enjoy – this is a community with a perfect blend of the old and the new with a historic Square at the center of it all. The Washington Square Community Association (WSCA) is helping to bring all this together.

The purpose of the WSCA is to embrace diversity by involving all portions of the community, build partnerships amongst the various community leaders, promote the community through public relation events and activities, and improve the quality of the community environment through ongoing cleanup and beautification projects. 


The Association seeks to create a community of businesses (both large & small), residents, and visitors who will work together to create and maintain a peaceful, safe, and desirable environment for all to work, live, and play.
