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 April 30, 2016 and can be found here.

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

Public Market(ing)!

Local Drinks

Let's Go Fly a Kite

If you're looking for something fun to do tomorrow, allow me to offer up     the kite celebration

at Ontario Beach. It sounds a little breezy, but is sure to be fun.

Upstate Dreaming

And finally,     high speed rail for Rochester.

What else is there to say? It'd be great, but I'd be surprised to see it happen.    * * *
