Love this article. I'm an avid motorcyclist (it is the main part of my identity as a human being), and am also a bicyclist - whenever I can't ride my motorcycle, I take my bicycle - and this is a fascinating look into a few strident bicyclists' lives. Very similar to a look into the lives of lifestyle-motorcyclists.
I'd have to say that Rochester's bicyclists, pedestrians, *and* motorcyclists are indeed treated as second-class citizens here. We need more accommodations and respect toward those 3 classes of commuters/people.
gt: We actually use New York Time style as the basis for our own house style, and it uses the apostrophe for dates.
This music video was filmed there: http://youtu.be/Xkn0pnbWpF0
Dates aren't possessive. 1850s is correct, 1850's is not.
Alex, how did I not know this? This is critical information.
Don't forget that H.P. Lovecraft, commonly considered the father of modern horror, has many paternal ancestors that were buried in Mt.Hope before the family moved to Rhode Island (his father was born and raised in Rochester).
Great article and event summary, Rebecca.
