Re: “Mt. Hope braces for big build

I live in a suburb where Target and Wegmans are .15 miles from my front door. They create lots of traffic and noise but I have survived and life is still worth living. These people will survive. They live in a city.

Re: “Is Rochester's development meeting everybody's needs?

The article fails to recognize that there have been new low income buildings constructed in the past 2 years. One on South Ave, where it meets Mt Hope and one on Alexander St, next to the old Sears come to mind. There are most likely others. The city has been known for decades as a place where low income people reside. People have kvetched about no retail and limited commercial business in the city. Obviously low income residents do not bring that, or those businesses would already be there. Now the city is changing and that's deemed bad as well? Instead of petitioning the city, those for change should be petitioning developers to change their projects to meet the needs of low income people. Low income housing is laden throughout the Northern and Western portions of the city. If retail and commercial business is what city residents want, they must embrace the current change. I understand keeping it in check, but work hand in hand with developers, instead of rallying against the city which so desperately needs the tax base.

Re: “Downtown hotels step up their restaurant game

Wishing death to a business because you can't afford it is sad. Jealousy and ignorance is no way to navigate life. Instead, just don't go there.

Re: “Are you there, College Town?

Saha Med Grill's food is terrible, thats why it closed. Corner Bakery Cafe was poorly run by the franchisee. Their 2 Buffalo locations and the Pittsford location also closed. The franchisee doesnt know how to run a business. Constantino's Market was destined for failure. Higher prices than Wegmans, poor selection, it was hidden from the road, no advertising, doomed to fail from day 1. And Bar 145 had sporadic hours (closed when they were advertised as open), not so great food, it was hidden from the road, no advertising. Unless you have an amazing product or youre Good Luck, you need to advertise, its as simple as that.

Re: “How racist is Rochester?

In 2017, in Rochester, any race can be successful. This may not be true in other parts of the nation, or even in rural parts of NYS, but it is in Rochester. If you can act responsibly, are well spoken, and have an open mind willing to try and learn, anything can be accomplished. People must get past the follow the Jones mentality. If you grow up in a poor neighborhood, but see someone more successful on tv, at the store, at school, do anything you can to emulate them. Research what made them successful and reach for it. It is often the chosen path, not the bequeathed path, that leads a person to an unsuccessful life.

Re: “Village character at center of Pittsford standoff

Wilmorites malls are pitiful examples of retail, but this is the first proposal that they seem to be doing properly. The buildings look aesthetic and they fit the character of the area well. As long as they are well maintained, they will be an asset. Our current Wilmorite malls are a mish mash of additions and ugly 1970s - 1980s architecture. They only positive thing about the Wilmorite malls is the landscaping and Brooks Brothers. This is the first Wilmorite proposal that shows promise, and hopefully Pittsford incomes will bring some long needed upscale retail to Rochester, an area that sorely needs it.

Re: “Cheap Drinks: North Winton Village

Id recommend a St Paul sojourn. Scotland Yard, Tapas, Pane Vino, and the Genny Brew House for some inexpensive drinks.
