I am a trustee of a very rural cemetery at the south end of Livingston Cty. Although we hire out the mowing, the heavy maintenance is up to us.
i hope it works of course. obviously exclusive but who cares if it plants a seed. who will shop? where will they park? what will they sell? clean, well lit, safe, all essential ingredients. i thought most of the money was in the eastern burbs? what about eastview mall? a competitor?
In 1999, after a 20 yr absence, I drove into downtown Rochester one afternoon and thought I dropped into the Twilight Zone. I was stunned at what a ghost town it was.
I had been in Pittsburgh all that time and am back there now. Empty store fronts, a mere shadow of its former self when I first arvd in 1968.
Pittsburgh is developing downtown residences. I am not a student of any of this. I like Rochester. It has an extraordinary cultural life, more than most places I have visited.
I hope the city fathers can pull it back from the brink.
