Great resource , as I have been involved with a few of these organizations and they all do great things!
Just want to make a correction regarding Black Young Professionals of Rochester... It's actually called Rochester Black Young Professionals (just in case anyone has to search) and the membership is open for those 21-41 years of age. Membership is $35/yr and $5 for non-members for events. We can be found on Twitter (@ULRBYP) and Instagram (@rochesterbyp) as well.
They forgot to mention many great services. When you are going to list services, a thorough list should be provided.
You forgot to mention Bob Minchella's dog owner counseling- He's the absolute best!
Love to see a Best of Rochester Bed and Breakfast category.
Somehow this article passed over our most famous and breathtaking public building of all....First Unitarian Church on Winton, designed by Louis Kahn.
Great article overall guys, but seriously...you missed Kahn's First Unitarian???
Thanks for the great article, and for including Cat Clay in it. Miss Clifton is very happy, thank god!
It's "Irondequoit", not "Irondequiot" as you wrote above. You also have two different spellings of the name of the HOG owner; according to Wikipedia, it's "Schaubroeck".
Another of the People's Treasures among Public Spaces is Lamberton Conservatory....here's my homage to its 100th Birthday in words and pictures.
That it was constructed from a kit designed by the company that brought the first affordable Glass Buildings to the America takes away nothing from its charm.
Advice for freshmen- don`t throw your money away on books you won`t need. Wait till you make sure you`ll use them, then look for the cheapest option to get in print, or even better- a free option to get in digital form. Start your downloading quests at BookBoon.com- it`s probably the only free textbooks site you`ll need, they practically have every subject covered.
I really wish there were more than one in each category. Why not show who won 2nd, 3rd, maybe a few honorable mentions? Also, I'm surprised that none of the restaurants display a badge of some sort on their website that they won Best of Rochester. Seems like something they'd want to brag about. If I was behind the marketing for this I'd make sure each restaurant had a badge to display proudly on their website and a plaque to hang in their restaurant. http://www.ct.com/entertainment/best-of-ct…
Again, personal preference. I enjoy Rohrbach's Highland, Scotch, Red Wing, & Railroad. That said, I'll definitely look into trying CBs White Hop & Krystoff. I WAS talking bricks & mortar however... Can you technically call 3HB a brewery? If so, then I agree with you (w/ the exception of Bromigo). Cheers!
If you're talking to me about a brick-and-mortar, I defy you to find me a beer that Rohrbach's has ever brewed that's better than CB's White Hop. And their Krystoff is terrific. You have to get your head out of the City and realize that CBs is brewing completely different beer in the last year.
But in terms of beer, nothing beats Three Heads. And they've been around for all of a year.
Also, Brooks has no use for those people who aren't taxpayers. It's the money the drives everything---the scandals, the perks for friends.
There are virtual and real (paper) mountains of STEM (scientific, technical, engineering, and medical) data and information, the findings of every national academy of science in the world, the position statements of scores of professional societies and associations, and the common sense of a Fifth Grade student that says (not claims) global climate change is real, it is caused by human activities, it is happening faster and with greater consequences than thought five, ten or twenty years ago. The U.S. department of defense lists the increasing rates of science and math illiteracy and the increasing threats of political instability attributed to climate change as major threats to the U.S. national security. However, there are an alarming number of people that betray their near-total science illiteracy by holding on to the misguided, fossil fuel-funded, and extreme political ideologies by denying that climate change is real. The electorates for every political race have an obligation NOT to send to county, state or Federal elected offices science illiterates. While a vast majority of the world is implementing or planning to implement soon the existing technologies for reducing carbon dioxide emissions, the United States finds itself still debating the realities of living in a greenhouse gas constrained world. A factor, when deciding for whom to vote on November 6th, is sending candidates to their offices that have knowledge of living in a world not constrained by greenhouse gases. F.W.

j.a.m. - Since Obama's "illegal government takeover" of health care was approved by both houses of Congress and upheld by the Supreme Court you must be using a definition of "illegal" which the rest of us are unfamiliar with. Could you please elaborate?
As to Slaughter, I do find it amusing that City's case FOR her re-election is less than half the length of the case AGAINST Maggie Brooks. One would have thought that the ratio should have been reversed given Slaughter's decades of experience in Congress.
Wouldn't it have been much simpler to just cite the best reason for voting for Slaughter ,which by the way is the same single best reason for voting for Obama? Namely, that they're not conservatives?
You claim that advertisers must share City's political stance or they wouldn't advertise here. And that they risk losing conservative customers by advertising n this "liberal rag".
Out of curiosity, where have you been living?
Do you believe that only left wing companies advertise in the NY Times (another notorious "liberal rag")? Do only social and political neanderthals buy air time on Fox or WHAM? When Maggie Brooks wants to announce some county event to the public does she abstain from utilizing the pages of the D&C in order to avoid being infected by those Leftys? Do no corporations with a conservative stance pay to sponsor NPR?
While YOU may advocate boycotting businesses or organizations who advertise in publications of which you disapprove , the rest of us of will simply thank you for the laughs and continue to buy from whom we please, sans the NeoCon litmus test.
Didn't Gillibrand vote for SOPA?
By freezing the property tax rate the city and town assessors were forced to artificially inflate home assessments to get the tax money they require. This has resulted in an enormous increase in the number of homes that sell below assessment. As a result we have, in effect, a large undeclared tax increase. I am waiting for any local news organization to look into this. When homeowners fight their assessments some assessors(not all), lie in the hearings in an attempt to when out over the homeowner. Look at your own assessment. Has it gone up faster than the market prices?
The City newspaper has always been a liberal rag. This article takes those political views to a new level though. This magazine is largely funded through advertising, and such one sided politics in a big advertisement, leads me to believe all of the businesses advertising share the view of the paper, or they would advertise elsewhere. While I respect businesses freedom to express their political views, this is just poor business practice to advertise in a publication with a clear political agenda. They are very seriously risking alienating almost half of their potential customers. While I will still support the businesses that pay to advertise in this paper, I can imagine many people will not, based on articles such as this. This is going to be a very close race, and in tough econimic times, it could be very costly to a business to lose even a few potential customers due to such blatantly biased "reporting".
Another ticking time bomb for Monroe County taxpayers is the fact that virtually no sewer (Pure Waters) infrastructure has been built since 1992. This failure has resulted in the sewer and VanLare overflows and the runoff that has kept our Lake Ontario beaches closed far too often in recent years. This year our beaches were named as among the 10 worst in the Nation. Brooks and the County Legislature's failure to upgrade and increase capacity for our sewer and storm sewer systems will require massive expenditures in the near future. Brooks poor stewardship of infrastructure will be rued.
