Culver Avenue is a former Rochester Industrial and Rapid Transit Railway station located in Rochester, New York. It was closed in 1956 along with the rest of the line.[1]

This station was built at Culver Road in a cutting[1] that had once been the bed of the Erie Canal and is now a section of the Eastern Expressway, with a siding on the south side to the National Guard Armory[1]

The Armory had originally been home to the 121st Cavalry Regiment, and in 2012 the building was repurposed into a mixed-use development Culver Road Armory, containing restaurants, offices, retail and residences.[2]
