Did you hear, last week Rochester earned a spot on a top ten list of most creative cities? It’s true. From local development to just plain news of the weird, here are your RocLinks for this past week…
Rochester has been ranked as one of the top 10 most creative cities in the country. The article references us as having the 12th most bookstores. While I, personally, love Greenwood Books , I’m curious what and where all the other bookstores are. Either that or there are dozens of large cities without a bookstore, which sounds terrible.

This now raises the question of how many $40 ostrich eggs Brighton can/will consume. Your guesses in the comments would be much appreciated.
The Highland Hospital is hoping to break ground this spring (presumably after Rochester thaws out) on a new expansion. If you recall, long time residents of the neighborhood aren’t big fans of the change. In fact, they weren’t too keen on my ideas either. That said, the expansion looks relatively innocuous, even if whatever diseases are treated in it surely won’t be.
Preservation and You
The Landmark Society has announced their 2015 Spring Partners Roundup. I recommend going so much that I will likely be there myself. I am, sadly, not a member of the YUPs , but I will personally vouch for them being awesome people.
And finally, please, everyone, shovel out hydrants on your property. You never know when they could come in handy.
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!
