Directions to the Store :
This web site is smart phone friendly
OK, here's a pet peeve of mine...
someone calls for directions, I give them the details, turn here, get off here,
go this far, etc. Then they'll say "could you give them to me again" or "how far
was that", so I tell them. Then they'll say hmm, maybe I ought to write these
down, can you give them to me one more time? Listen, if ya call for directions,
have a pencil and a piece of paper ready! On with the directions.
If you want to come to Birds
Unlimited, we'll get you here, hopefully this will provide you with an
accurate description of getting you to our store. Now if you're coming from out
of town you won't have to call, just print them out, hop in your car, gas up and
alert: If you're
using a GPS device, it will send you to the restaurant down the road and on the
opposite side than what we are on. If you're in the mood for some Italian food
you may like this but Birds Unlimited is up the road about 300 yards on
the other side.
From the East: (let's say
you're in Syracuse, Albany, or Utica)
Take the NYS Thruway to exit 45,
(don't forget to leave a donation to New Yorks fine highways), keep going
straight through onto 490 West, I'm not sure the distance bit it's about one
long song on the radio, then you'll need to veer onto 590 North. Proceed about
one short song's distance to exit 8, also known as Empire Blvd. There is regularly a State Trooper perched in the median between exits 7 & 8. Turn right so
you're heading East and go 1.5 miles ( about 2 minutes or one really short song
like they used to play back in the 60's) to my parking lot, we're on the right.
From the West: (Buffalo,
During rush hour I'd advise not
going through the city of Rochester, instead do this. Take the NYS Thruway to
the Corning / Henrietta / 390 exit (exit #46). Go North on 390, you'll go a few
miles and 390 will turn into 590 North, stay on this, until you get to exit 8,
also known as Empire Blvd. There is regularly a State Trooper perched in the median between exits 7 & 8, you've been warned. Turn right onto Empire Blvd. at the light (stop if it's red) and go 1.5
miles, about two minutes to 1421 Empire Blvd. my parking lot. How easy is
If you're not coming during rush
hour take the NYS Thruway to the Leroy exit (exit #47) that puts you on 490
East, as you exit the city of Rochester turn North onto 590. You'll only need to
go about one song (have a cd or your radio on) to exit 8 Empire Blvd. turn
right, East and go 1.5 miles to my parking lot.
From the South: (Florida,
Georgia...) Follow the above directions from 390 North to 590 North to exit 8,
From the North: Everything I
said above just turn your map upside down, or if coming by boat go all the way to the South end of Irondequoit Bay and walk up the hill to my store.
