Children return to East Avenue

East Avenue, for more than a century the address of Rochester’s 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 York.

 

Salt 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.
