RocLinks 2/7/15

February 7th, 2015

Photo of David Bowie arrest in Rochester NY for sale on eBay.
By Matthew Denker

This week’s photo takes us back to March 21, 1976. That’s glam rock legend David Bowie (center) being arrested on drug charges by undercover cops at the Americana Rochester Hotel on State Street after a concert at the War Memorial. This rare “behind the scenes photo” was passed among the RPD for decades and this week a copy of it found it’s way onto eBay external link for an asking price of $25,000 $20,000. Get your bids in now – the auction ends tomorrow morning. [Read more about the Bowie arrest here external link]

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

Midtown Redux

As you may know Midtown Tower is being redeveloped by Buckingham (and Morgan) into some apartments. This week they closed external link on the final loan to complete the project. Also, bids are in external link for Parcel 5, and they’re a little lightweight.

Feed Me Seymour

Did you know Harts isn’t the only small local grocer external link in the area? Can the market thrive despite the local love-in for Wegmans? Small and local events external link could do the trick (and you should go Sunday to try the new sauces).

At the Movies

Unbeknownst to us rubes are RocLinks, Kodak still makes film. Not only that, but they just signed a deal external link to keep making a ton of the stuff so Michael Bay has an ongoing medium for blow things up. You’re welcome, Rochester.

Chicken and Waffles…

…a dish I’ve long lamented not being able to consume regularly and with aplomb in Rochester. Well NO MORE! Get a load of this external link, everyone. Even better, it’s conveniently located in the 19th Ward.

Synergy

Can you believe I used the heading ‘Feed Me Seymour’ without even KNOWING that Geva is currently running Little Shop of Horrors? external link It’s a sign. You should go.

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!

  1. Dustin W. says:

    Just read the Midtown Redux and I must say that I’m disappointed that it looks like The Grove at Midtown won’t happen. That would have changed the face of downtown. I feel like everything else will just be lackluster. Do you think that we could rally the support of the community to bring back The Grove concept? There is no reason that Rochester shouldn’t have something that nice

  2. I liked it too, but it seems to have fallen victim to the loss of Mr. Glazer. I don’t believe there’s any other firm in Rochester with that kind of vision or execution to make such a project happen. Even Mark IV, who I like, would probably not be able to execute quite the way it was shown. That said, with the final renderings of Midtown Tower, value engineering continues to rear its ugly head, even with the best projects in town. I do really hope someone in Rochester will be able to fill the void. And while I’d love to be the guy, I have a long long way to go (or am a lottery win away, I suppose… I’d make for an eccentric millionaire).

  3. David says:

    Matt, I’m right there with you. I definitely don’t have the means right now, but one way or the other I want to make an impact on Rochester too. Rochester already has the assets. We just need to get more companies interested in moving here or starting their business here, more people interested in living here, and more tourists heading over to our city.

  4. Max says:

    No love for Abundance in D&C small grocer article… lame.

  5. Love the Bowie “behind the scenes photo”. Was able to interview the person selling the photo on ebay for my documentary Bowie Goes To Jail. If you (or someone you know) has any info about that night, please contact me via my website. Thanks, Matt Ehlers (Rochester filmmaker)
