RocLinks 5/28/16

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 May 28, 2016 and can be found here.

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

at an alarming rate. While I do think we need to keep it fresh, at least announcing some kind of rotation would set minds at ease. It would be a shame to see the works completely gone, especially for just ads.


Hey,     remember     Charlotte?     I do.    Well new plans     were shown

this week. If the hotel comes out half as nice as these renderings, I'll be impressed.

this year. Give it a spin, and have a good time out there.

Send More Parks

Are you one of the people who thinks there just isn't enough green space in the city despite never using any of the parks in town? Well you're in luck, as the Preservation Society     threw open the gates

to St. Joseph's Park this year.

The Best, Jerry

And finally, Rochester recently had not one, but two of it's stellar watering holes     named best in the country.

I know what you're thinking, "Swan's isn't a bar!" And you're right, but if you're going there and not drinking beer, you might be doing it wrong.    * * *

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!
