return to East Avenue
Avenue, for more than a century the address of Rochesters
rich and powerful is lovely still but has come alive to
a sound not heard often for a generation: young families
have returned. Among those, the Coves. Colleagues wanted
to lure Dr. Christopher Cove back to Strong Memorial from
Cleveland. Initially reluctant, he and his wife, Lisa, changed
their minds almost instantly when they stepped inside a
sprawling English Tudor on the corner of East Boulevard.
The Coves 3 sons now have the run of a home most often
associated with a very different family, the Eisenharts.
The longest term residents of the Tudor mansion were once
among the most powerful and philanthropic in Western New
of the Earth
Warsaw, New York was once the salt capitol of the nation.
There was money to be made there, money the Humphrey family
earned from real estate, banking and other business interests.
The family is still in banking and is still in the house
that that first bloom of money built, a stately 1880s Queen
Anne that has been lovingly and painstakingly restored over
a 14 year period. In each room is a different elegance and
wood. In each, a different mood enjoyed in different seasons.
