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 August 13, 2016 and can be found here.

Midtown (or Midpark, if you like)!

So some people want to     put a park

at Midtown. I disagree with them (see book, Face). But don't worry, they disagree with me, so if you want a (not a) park at Midtown, someone is fighting hard for it for you. I will be writing at length about it in the next few weeks, so there's not much to say here. Stay tuned.


And finally, the city requested proposals for a bike share in Rochester, and lo,     everyone

was interested. I am personally 'in the can' for Bcycle, since they are compatible everywhere they run bike share, which just so happens to be my hometown of Philly (and my current towns of Boulder/Denver).    * * *
