New City Cafe in the Beechwood neighborhood opened in June, and it already has a number of regular customers. The cafe is part of 441 Ministries, a grassroots, faith-based organization based on Parsells Avenue. Its mission is to "re-neighbor" the community through a number of programs, including mentoring opportunities for teenagers.
New City Cafe was born from that mission. It employs teens from the neighborhood and provides them with skill-building opportunities. And it just might be the best coffee shop in Rochester. Our guests:
- John Lee, director of New City Cafe
- Chris Holdridge, founder of 441 Ministries
