Rochester's largest and fastest growing quadrant - The 55901 zip code covers all of Rochester's northwest quadrant so locals sometimes just call it "01". This fast growing quadrant is home to the NW shopping district on Highway 52 between 37th and 51st St NW. Locals say "Northwest" but will always write "NW" so you'll know you're in the area when the streets and avenues end in "NW". You'll find the best sledding hill in town in Judd Park at 3812 3rd St NW, the newest elementary school (Gibbs Elementary), computer giant IBM and proud John Marshall High School Rocket fans in this large part of town. It's easy to get around in NW Rochester as West Circle Drive, Highways 14, 52 and 63 all run through this area and provide easy commutes.
New and affordable homes in NW Rochester - There's been a lot of growth in the northwest part of Rochester with fantastic new developments such as Crimson Ridge, Badger Hills, Kingsbury Hills and more. The City of Rochester has encouraged residential developments in this quadrant as we have the water/fire/sewage/electrical support systems in place or planned. Thus, NW Rochester has become the largest residential and business area of the four Rochester quadrants.
