History:







There were two previous incarnations of NY 153. The original NY 153 alignment followed present day NY 351 north of Poestenkill (Then NY 154, Now NY 355) and was signed there until the early 1940s. In 1962, NY 153 resurfaced in Washington County between Salem (NY 22) and the Vermont state line. That designation was decommissioned in 1980 and was replaced with Washington CR 153.

The current NY 153 alignment was assigned in late 1983 to replace a portion of the former eastern extension of NY 253 in Pittsford, East Rochester, and Penfield.

NY 153 shield that was once a NY 253 shield just outside of East Rochester. When NYSDOT renumbered NY 253 north and east of Pittsford as NY 153 in 1983, crews simply affixed a "1" decal over the "2" on signage. This sign has since been replaced and may have been the last one to show this modification.
