Welcome neighbors! Stop by 6 atlas street some time
As they say in the meat processing business, no matter how you package it, it's still baloney!
Teaches you perception is reality and the complex problem is when you don't understand the perceptions others have for you, your country or your cause. More often than not were too caught up in the culture shock and cannot comprehend that there are cultures out there that differ from our own and that ours is not the best, none is better or worse.
Ha! Who said Tom Richards' projects don't bring jobs downtown?
how come you fail to mention that the city council all voted to let deputy mayor reardon pay only 144 dollars in property taxes on his 300,000 dollar condo and many other major political contributors. rochester is a corrupt joke. all because they have the people believing their lies!!! just because they are democrats they get away with everything. people need to wake up and look at the people not the party!! stop the greed go with green!~~~
your election guide is a joke, yes return the same old same old. fill in our inner loop spend 20 million dollars on a beauty project?? spend 30 million dollars on condos in a public park??? the list goe s on and on with these city council members maybe the problem is they are all lawyers. they sell off rochester piece by piece to developers but you suppor this because they fund your paper!!!
What Rochester needs (as does Buffalo, where I now live) is to have police patrols on foot in these neighborhoods. Driving around in police cars does nothing to prevent crime; it is only a resource that allows the police to respond quicker.
Good for Bruce Barnes for opposing it, and keep up the good work. Much of University Avenue is, in atmosphere, a "dead zone," but how things are now is not how they were, or how they would be with proper planning in the years and decades to come. The City has done well re the Neighborhood of the Arts; give the Eastman House, which is central to that concept, the opportunity to do as it needs to do in the future there. It is against the interests of the entire community for space in the immediate vicinity of the Eastman House to be blocked off from future development in keeping with its location by the kind of project Morgan Management wants to do, which is as short-sighted, mercenary, shallow, and unwise as are the arguments in support of fracking. I've known the Voiture/40&8 since my late father was County Commander, the immediate vicinity of the Eastman House has been home to me virtually all my life, and my church is the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation next door. I know the area as well as anyone does, and I know what I'm talking about here. Plus, problematic parties ow have devastated the neighborhood's trees, all of which are in a preservation district and none of which are to be taken down without permission of the preservation board, without seeking the permission of the City and too often without being sanctioned by it as proper, already. Put it somewhere else, Morgan. It doesn't belong there. One trusts that the Planning Commission and the Preservation Board will act in the best interests of the city and leave this space as is so that something more supportive of and conducive to what this city can do and be in the future than a mere apartment house can manifest. Kindly remember the folly of ca. 1960, when the City wanted pink apartment houses; I remember, in fact, when the City insisted that an irreplaceable mansion be torn down and that one be built. Sure, Morgan wants the location. But it's not the appropriate use of the space. May I suggest that rather than approving Morgan's Folly, the Preservation Board exercise its authority regarding the trees in the neighborhood.
In response to the two prior comments, if the number of hypothetical residents of this hypothetical apartment or condo project who would visit and even donate to the Eastman House -- if they did -- is sufficient to make a significant difference to the Eastman House, then George's legacy is less than we thought. In terms of the Eastman House's "right" to "possess" the property, well, how much does the Eastman House mean to the community versus how much Morgan Management does? I have no reason to be a fan of City Newspaper's management, but honestly I do not see how it is failing to be objective in this instance. What is a pity is apparent inability to understand why it is important not to split an infinitive.
I live in the South Wedge and my partner owns a bar in the area. I have recently been victim to car vandalisms, car break in, and home robbery. We'd like to be involved in any planning to make our neighborhood a safe place.
I would love to be a part of this. My partner and I bought a house in the heart of the Wedge and I would like to help keep it safe.
Thanks, Christine. Totally understand. Look forward to hearing more about this and the progress the group makes - I also agree that that park at the corner of Alexander and South has become a trouble spot and prized location for people hanging out and drinking.
The meeting is not open to the public; this is a very early, planning meeting. I left out the location so people wouldn't be tempted to show up anyway.
I live up the hill from the South Wedge and may be interested in attending the meeting. Can you update with specifics of when and where the meeting will be held? Thanks.
I don't understand their vehement opposition to this plan, not least because the people who could afford these condos (people like my empty-nest parents) are likely to be avid visitors (and donors) to the Eastman House.
The hypocrisy of the Eastman House continues. Having tried to fast shuffle the Monroe Voiture veterans club last time around and having been caught in the act, now they try to derail any other use of the property they believe they have a god-given right to possess.
A pity that City Newspaper's management is unable to objectively report on the Morgan proposal.
Ooh...code enforcement in Irondequoit. There's a novel concept. Cars habitually parked on lawns & right-of-way are all too common.
And I hope to one day be 6'3" and a multi-billionaire. Ain't gonna happen either!
Lej? The only "Lej" I know of is the group ,"Literacy for Environmental Justice" in San Fran. And the "LEJ" designator for the Leipzig/Halle Airport in Germany.
This program is very beneficial to the community as a whole. For every teen helped, that is one less person in the system. One less teen lost to the life of violence. Now if we could catch teens before they find themselves in these situations would be even better. I hope this program continues to help those who come through its doors for many years to come.
Kara-to speak in generalities about what "most" pro-life people are doing or not doing is not an argument- it is a convenient and entirely subjective distraction. It is an attempt to avoid the reality of a discussion of what abortion is.
Over 300,000 people protest the capital on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade every year- This is just a minority of the millions of people in this country who profess to be pro-life. How can you possibly know what millions of people are doing or not doing? Or what they believe about the death penalty or healthcare or anything?
This article counters your argument- it shows that among these protesters are women looking to help other women to keep their babies- for nothing in return.
Planned Parenthood makes a billion dollars a year on abortions! They sell abortions. These protesters are not selling anything. Who has the altruistic motive here? PP takes your money, kills your baby and then sends you on your way. People like Mary Jost are helping women (pre and post natal) with every possible issue- food, clothing, housing, you name it, to keep mothers and their babies together or to find an adoptive home- to help women give their children life and to meet both of their needs- at birth and beyond.
Many women who protest PP have had abortions and suffered tremendously and want to stop other women from experiencing the same pain. They want to eliminate the crisis for these women, not to eliminate their baby.
I am aware that there are few among us like Mother Teresa- she is the ideal to strive for- but, being against abortion, does not mean you want to see children die, or to be molested or any other possible tragedy. Many of these protesters are mothers- did they abandon their own children after birth, caring only for them in utero?!
The problem is, that it is very hard to defend the images of abortion that these protesters are showing. The Pro-choice solution is to divert the issue and demonize those who are trying to show this reality.
