Annual Manual 2013 

The Definitive Guide to Rochester

The real living social

In the age of social media, we're supposedly more connected than we've ever been. And yet most of us spend hours of our days glued to our laptops, tablets, or mobile devices leading virtual lives, and not living, you know, actual lives.

For this year's Annual Manual, we took inspiration from popular social networks and techy applications — Pinterest, Instagram, Spotify — and used them as a way to frame the various aspects of Rochester.

So look inside for a guide to local record stores, presented as Top 5 album lists. Get a glimpse of our fair city via some funky photo snaps. Or get inspired by taking a closer look at some interesting local architecture.

No matter what you do, spend this year actually getting out and exploring Rochester — the real one, not the one on your screen. - ERIC REZSNYAK
