Apologies for leaving out the date. The post has been corrected.
I take it we're supposed to guess the date of this event since it wasn't mentioned in the article?
You're correct, Pam (and Chris), the city website does show Beechwood in the SE quadrant, but the logic of putting it there totally escapes me when it is very clearly in the NE part of the city.
The City NSC offices have quads where Beechwood is considered the Southeast. See here: http://www.cityofrochester.gov/maps/
Hello again, Rochester Musician,
I should have been clearer: of course I know that geographically, Beechwood is in the northeast. But for purposes of the FIS program, it's part of Southeast Council member Elaine Spaull's district.
Beechwood, in the southeast??? For real?? Maybe the city administration has some very odd views on what direction is which. Again according to the neighborhood association: "Beechwood is bordered to the North by Bay Street, to the East by Culver Road, to the South by East Main Street, and to the West by North Goodman Street."
So where is Marketview Heights? I checked the definition and it is "bounded on the west by North Street, on the east by North Goodman Street, on the north by Clifford Avenue and south at East Main Street."
Note that both of these neighborhoods are bounded on the south by East Main Street ...
Examining a map of Rochester, Beechwood is directly (and immediately) to the east of Marketview Heights. So please explain how Beechwood can remotely be considered southeast Rochester???
Thanks ID for pointing that out.
Tim, correction: Rhee did teach for three years - and there's a scandal there, too, regarding the testing results. That seems to have been hushed up, but her claims of her teaching excellence are suspect here as well. But Rhee had never been an assistant principal, a principal, a central administrator of any stripe (no directorship, assistant superintendent) - nada, zip - before being appointed chancellor at the age of 36.
I double checked with the city administration and they do indeed consider Beechwood the southeast.

Ummmm ... Beechwood is in the northeast, not the southeast ... in fact, from the neighborhood association website: "Welcome to Beechwood, a dynamic and diverse neighborhood nestled in historic northeast Rochester."
So what is the targeted neighborhood in the southeast, since it obviously can't be Beechwood?
Note to editor: Please run a find/replace on this article for the word investment. Replace it with sacrifice.
So the Children's Crusade is finally over. Too bad that the RPO board had to waste time and money defending itself from a glorified temper tantrum.
I work for Geva and want to let you know that there is no more to the story than what we provided to the press. Forster never met with the playwright until Geva secured the rights to the show. He did express an interest in doing the show publicly but needed a producer like Geva to take it to the next step, Unfortunately, their schedules did not allow for a meeting until the days after we made our announcement. It was a meeting between the playwright and Mr Forster and then later a follow-up conversation with artistic director Mark Cuddy that lead to the writer rescinding the rights from Geva. There are currently no productions of THE LIFEGUARD currently planned any where . Geva does regret not being able to bring this new work and Mr Forster to our stage this summer.
To John Peckham:
Thanks for your comment. I just checked in with YMCA of Greater Rochester officials for clarification. They tell me that the Southeast YMCA is the smallest suburban facility; the Monroe Avenue and Maplewood facilities are smaller. I'll be correcting the story so that this is clear.
This is the same "If we build it they will come" mentality that led Bill Johnson to put taxpayers in the dumper to the tune of tens of millions of dollars to pay (twice) for his absurd Fast Ferry day dream. Apparently our current mayoral administration is content to follow in Bill's footsteps. Sadly, the result will be identical. More wasted millions with the only result being a new collection of underutilized facilities to go along with the ferry terminal.
I don’t suppose the city bothered putting together a business case for the port project which Mr. Gregor would care to share with the public?
Smaller than the Monroe Y? I think not. I find the statement by "Y officials" to be disingenuous. I love the Southeast Y and in it's current location I think it's the most outdoor-runner-friendly Y in the area. It's adjacent to the Canal Path @ Mitchell Road and puts you onto decent neighborhood roadways that runners of many levels of expertise can enjoy, from flat to some serious hills. While I sympathize with the Y on this, the proposed location won't offer outdoor-running Y-members nearly as many SAFE opportunities. They've already built an east-side Taj Mahal facility on Rt. 250. Is a second ginormous east-side facility really necessary?
The left is showing it's true colors by this giant gun grab. Why not enforce the laws on the books and focus on helping the mentally ill? Because democrats don't care about safety and are exploiting this to achieve their long desired goal of disarming Americans.
Wolves in sheep's clothing.
There is more to the Pier 45 story than location. The operator was unqualified and the place was poorly managed, the service was awful and the food was substandard. Very few people I know would return even when the weather was beautiful. In the restaurant business reputation and quality create the return customers essential to success. They had the best view of the harbor and did not pay rent during much of the year and the facilities were already built and provided by the city. It was incompetence, not just location.
Given the state of many downtown buildings it strikes me that blacked out windows should be the least of Ms. Barry's concerns.
Thank you for reporting on the School Budget hearing. I am a parent of a child at School 23 and I would like to restore our school's music program. Our children deserve a more robust music instruction program. Music and art are not "extras" but are vital to creating self-confident, wise, and appreciative future citizens. --GretaN
