Excellent list! Proud to be a Rochesterian.
That's a great point, and something we should absolutely consider if we do a second version of the Rochester 10. Are there people in the faith community you would recommend in particular?
I really appreciate this piece and the folks highlighted who represent the broader depths of talented folks in Rochester. I just wonder if a faith community was not included because there are none who have made as critical differences in the city - or if communities of faith are seen as less than relevant compared to the other categories. Again, thank you for lifting these folks up to our community, Ray Bagnuolo, Rochester, NY email@example.com
David, You've said it so well. I saw this wonderful production on opening night and my daughter and I were blown away. This is truly the hidden gem of the season and I hope they sell out the rest of their shows.
What a wonderful and thorough review from Mr. Raymond! I sincerely appreciate you coming to the play and so happy you enjoyed it as well. It is such a charming and heart-felt story that I couldn't wait to share it with the Rochester community. Bravo to the dedicated and talented cast and crew to launch a fantastic show!
Thanks so much Mr. Raymond :-) Great review and I am humbled that you singled me out too. It is a fun role and I have really enjoyed playing it.
I'd like to add a few things..
Winter cycling (or even bike commuting at all) isn't something one has to dive in right away. You can start riding on nice days and slowly as your skills, interests, and accumulation of gear builds then you might find yourself riding on worse and worse weather days.
You don't have to be a complete bike nerd to ride a bike. though you might become one.
Not represented in this article (but who exist) are female cyclists, cyclists who commute to blue collar or white collar jobs, cyclists who don't spend over a grand on their bikes, and people who bike because that's all they can afford and public transportation is just not cutting it.
For new cyclists out there... the aesthetics of your bike are far less important than getting out on the road (or trail). If you ride a Huffy but you ride that's what counts. Don't be shy or embarrassed to go into a bike store for help.
I was wrong in my use of the word "strident." Those bicyclists aren't harsh and grating, as the definition shows. They're frank and open, and passionate. :)
It is curious that the City has had several articles about guests in my studio (Niraj Lama and Imran Aslam) without ever interviewing the artist who owns the studio.

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.
HORRIBLE review. Seriously.
Dear Rosecmj: We'll be putting together our New Year's Eve 2014 Guide in the next few weeks, and it will publish in our 12/25 issue. In the meantime, you can find some of the bigger NYE 2014 events in our Holiday Guide Events Calendar: http://www.rochestercitynewspaper.com/roch…
Where are the events for 2013, Tuesday, December 31?

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).
Looks like you are more of a Sesame Street live person. Sorry the show was beyond you.
