The future is now 

CITY Newspaper put together a Rochester themed time capsule to be opened in the year 2050. What would you put in a time capsule for the future residents of Rochester to open and remember this generation by? Comment below.

1. OPTICS & PHOTONICS

Sure to be the great savior of Rochester.

2. KODAK MODEL-C

Those who forget the past are sure to make the same mistakes in the future.

3. ABBY WAMBACH

The real Abby wouldn't fit in the time capsule.

4. JOYWAVE

Because we need some jams to listen to while we zip around in our flying cars.

5. THE INNER LOOP

R.I.P.

6. RED WINGS TICKETS

There's no better way to spend $8.

7. WALL\THERAPY BOOK

The only 100% legal and “still not a housing development” way to enjoy graffiti in Rochester.

8. GENESEE BOCK BEER

Bock-mas comes but once a year.

9. THEATER TICKETS

Long-live Rochester's vibrant music, art, and theater scene.

10. THE LITTLE

There's nothing Little about these big screens downtown.

11. DINOSAUR BBQ SAUCE

Bikers, Beers, and BBQ sauce.

12. LILAC BUSH

Is that the smell of lilacs or fried dough?

13. JAVA'S COFFEE

You try getting anything done in Mid-January Rochester without coffee!

14. WHITE HOTS

Still not sure why these are so popular...

15. JAZZ FESTIVAL PASSES

The Club Pass may be for the super fan, but people watching is free.
