"Depends on the section..."
Lake Avenue is an incredibly long and diverse street. I lived on the corner of Lake and Denise down closer to Charlotte. It's a beautiful area down there. Short walk down to Lake Ontario, the beach, the pier and all the wonderful activities. There's a bar down there, the Penny Arcade, I think everyone has been there at least once! If you head the other direction, more towards the city, there's a huge cemetery (Mt. Hope) and then you hit 104. Past 104 you get closer to the city, with grocery stores, and furniture stores, and it just keeps going all the way to Main Street Downtown!
