13 Mailboxes

This article was scraped from Rochester Subway. This is a blog about Rochester history and urbanism has not been published since 2017. The current owners are now publishing link spam which made me want to preserve this history.. The original article was published February 15, 2013 and can be found here.

13 Mailboxes

   I don't know why, but I really like the number 13. Some people go out of their way to avoid 13. Not me. In fact, I'm about to embark on a yearlong project for 2013. I'm going to pick 13 random subjects. Take 13 snapshots of each. And we'll see if we can paint a portrait of Rochester.

Let's start with the seemingly mundane mailbox. Most of these snapshots were taken near Sea Breeze...
