Re: “Downtown and its future

I share your sentiment Mary Anna, however (and not to be a Debbie Downer), I fear that issues, both real and perceived, with the RCSD will remain a hindrance to any long-term, sustained economic development. We really need to start looking at the district as a key piece of the overall economic development puzzle.

Re: “Panel offers hard truths for Rochester

Thanks Adam - I provided my input.

And now (at the risk of angering some folks) my unsolicited opinion of the Broad Street aqueduct: Tear the top off (and the walls down) so that traffic would operate on what was once the canal/rail bed. "Why" you ask? Although unquestionably a unique and interesting place created by the elevated Broad Street, the second layer of the aqueduct (where traffic now operates) obstructs what could be a great view of the Freddy-Sue Bridge from Main Street, as well as a view of Main Street from Court Street. I have no doubt that the graffiti artists (and I mean artists in the truest sense of the word as there's some really beautiful, exceptional work down there) will find a new place to go.

Re: “Panel offers hard truths for Rochester

The Rose Center is absolutely correct. Genesee Crossroads "Park" is a disgrace and a complete embarrassment to the city... As you walk the length of the "park", non-existent sight-lines keep you wondering if someone will jump out from one of the carved-out seating areas and mug you. I've been hassled by a homeless gentleman there before who walked almost the entire "park" with me asking for money... it's a safety issue, especially since no one else was around - and can you blame them?? What a horrible excuse for a public space. Please Mayor Warren, I realize budgets are tight, but this "park" needs to go ASAP! Level it and start over. Surely there must be some sort of environmental grant available to make it "greener" - similar to what was done at the Civic Center. /rant

Re: “Waiting for Hillary – and worrying about her chances

Seriously? A self-proclaimed "Alternative" newspaper hoping for a Hillary Clinton (i.e., status quo) presidency? Or Joe Biden?? Please.

I'll be voting for Bernie.
