RocLinks 3/21/15

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 March 21, 2015 and can be found here.

Sorry for leaving everyone high and dry on the link front last week. Ironically enough, I was in Rochester, which complicated writing a RocLinks so much that I was unable to do so. That said, it was wonderful seeing/meeting so many of you, and my deepest apologies to any readers I missed while in town.

And now, from local development to just plain news of the weird, here are your RocLinks for this past week...

Explore Rochester

Assuming this post is live and visible before 2PM tomorrow, go to Fuego and     explore Rochester

. Even if it doesn't make it, you at least have a new instagram worth following.


The public market is     getting a face lift

. I really hope this isn't blowing anyone's cover, but at an open house for a local design firm potential images of the building were hanging on the walls, and they were impressive to say the least.

Upgrade pt. 2!

Not into public markets? Well then maybe the June 2015 opening of     the Rooftop at the Strath

will tickle your fancy. It purports to have 260 degree views of Rochester and have space for you and 249 of your closest friends to eat dinner.

Upgrade pt. 3!

Will it ever stop!? Maybe you don't like public markets OR rooftop dining. Surely you're the kind of person who loves performing arts centers over vacant lots, then.     The city sure does

Upgrade pt. 4!

Alright, you jaded reader you, forget about the market, the rooftop (and your 249 friends), and a PAC. Everyone loves glass (even if they can't pronounce     Chihuly

), so go check out the     new wing at the Corning Museum of Glass

when it opens this weekend.    * * *

As always, use the comments below as open discussion for anything in these links - or let us know if there's a topic you'd like to see us hit more aggressively in future RocLinks. Have a great weekend!
