By Matthew Denker

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…

Checking In With WAYO 104.3 FM

March 19th, 2015
Posted in Art + Culture, Interviews, Rochester News | 2 Comments »

Artwork by Nick Gurewitch featured on a t-shirt that can be purchased at the WAYO website (www.wayofm.org).
By Mike Governale

In 2012, four individuals came together to bring something new to Rochester’s airwaves – a community run, free-form radio station that would reflect the voices and vision of the citizens of Rochester. Johanna Buran, Genevieve Waller, Matt Werts, and Mike Yates have now put most of the pieces in place to begin broadcasting this June.

RocSubway recently caught up with Mike Yates to find out what still needs to be done to make this dream a reality, and what listeners can expect when they tune in to the new WAYO 104.3 FM…

Wear to Where #5 … Lock 33

March 17th, 2015
Posted in Art + Culture, Rochester Destinations, Rochester Images, Transit + Infrastructure | 4 Comments »

It is almost impossible to imagine a project like the canal ever being built in today’s political climate and maybe that is not such a good thing. In this edition of Wear to Where we stop by Lock 33 and ask, 'What’s the big idea?' [PHOTO: Clarke Condé]
By Clarke Condé

At a cost to the New York taxpayer of just about half that of the Louisiana Purchase fourteen years earlier, “Clinton’s Ditch” faced the ageless and indestructible rancor of the New York State Legislature and the animosity of the press statewide. It is hard to overstate the impact the investment taxpayers made in building the canal had on the development of Rochester and New York State. Now, it is almost impossible to imagine a project like the canal ever being built in today’s political climate and maybe that is not such a good thing. In this edition of Wear to Where we stop by Lock 33 and ask, “What’s the big idea?”…

Winton Village Aldi Rendering
By Matthew Denker

Welcome back, readers. As you know, we’ve previously discussed things to do with Tops should Aldi be built at Winton Road and Blossom Road. There’s also been a discussion about how the construction of Aldi went in Irondequoit. Today, I’d like to take a look at a few reasonably simple changes that would completely change the tenor of the proposed development…

Clearing Rochester’s Sidewalks of Snow is Not a Problem, It’s an Opportunity

March 11th, 2015
Posted in Opinion, Transit + Infrastructure | 8 Comments »

When a lot of people are living in a small area, and all of those people own cars, we run out of places to put them. A winter like this one just makes us feel the pain a little more. [PHOTO: Joseph Crescente]
The following is a guest post submitted by Jim Mayer, Rochester NY.
Submit your story today.

Density of people is good for cities. Density of cars is not external link. More people create more demand for local shops and services, which, in return, attract more people. Businesses seeking talent are attracted as well, and the city benefits from increased sales and property tax revenue and by increased utilization of its existing infrastructure. On the other hand when a lot of people are living in a small area, and all of those people own cars, we run out of places to put them. A winter like this one just makes us feel the pain a little more…

Aldi Store Hailed as Model of 21st-Century Urban Planning

March 5th, 2015
Posted in Architecture, Rochester News, Transit + Infrastructure, Urban Development | 37 Comments »

The new Aldi store in Irondequoit offers a glimpse into the future for the corner of North Winton and Blossom.
By Mike Governale

You may remember an article I posted more than a year about new plans for an Aldi store in Irondequoit on Hudson Ave. At that time I suggested the building should front the street/sidewalk, instead of being set back behind the parking lot. I thought the result would have been a development that would be more accessible to people who might choose to walk in off the street.

My suggestion was met with all kinds of wisdom from the project architect who has since set me straight. I now understand why it is better community planning to put your buildings in the middle of parking lots…

By Matthew Denker

Some of you may know that there is a shiny, new-ish, giant Wegmans in Rochester. It’s over at East and Winton. Savvier readers may know about another grocery store nary a block away (but clearly on the wrong side of the tracks!). That’s right, there’s also a Tops. In addition, it has come to my attention that there are plans for an Aldi across the street on the site containing the old Roly-door building and Jim’s. For a city with few urban grocery stores, there’s food for everyone over here…
