    I’ve lived at RIT for a couple years now and the sprawl in Henrietta is just terrible. It has just befuddled me as to how and why there are no businesses around the school like there are at any other university in the nation. Most students don’t have cars and resort to walking. Even the bookstore is over a mile away from the dorms and the closest retail district is 2 miles away. There is a lot of good developable land around RIT too. Give us some walkable development please!

  2. Jonathan Bock says:

    We need to open a petition via change.org and have the funding ready to build Rochester Subway System. Or use a kickstarter via crowdfunding.

  3. Atelier 11 1/2 says:

    Rochester native here and former resident of New York City of over 20 years. Love your map! I mistook the Culver Rd. Station at Monroe Ave as being the site of an actual stop from the old subway of the 1940s. However there was a subway stop at Culver Rd and what now is I-490. I recall as a little kid walking to Cobbs Hill Park to go skating that at the westbound ramp at Culver Rd there was still the remains of the entryway sealed off. Regarding Dustin’s comment of lack of businesses and I’m assuming good public transportation I am also befuddled. I attended RIT almost cough, cough,30, ahem, years ago and even then I was astounded how remote it was if you didn’t have a car or regular bus service. I was fortunate to have a car to commute. I remember the parking lots were so full that I’d have to park in another time zone, but when my classes were over at night it was a trek across a now empty tundra to my lone car. And no matter what season it was there were always these cold winds blowing in my evening trek to the car. I would imagine by now a reliant shuttle service would be in place at RIT. Is there? I confess that I had to get a car once I moved back to the area since it is such a car-centric area.

  4. Bob says:

    Oh Dustin, can you imagine that way back in the dark ages (1999-2004) the bookstore used to be in the middle of campus? What an idea! What a big bullshit swindle that Park Point turned out to be, eh?

  5. Dustin W. says:

    To Atelier:
    They have a single bus that runs from the school to Marketplace Mall, to downtown (Costs $1). However, the weekend shuttle just runs from RIT to the mall and back (free). Is it reliable, does it come often enough??? NOPE.

    To Bob:
    That sounds like the craziest thing! A bookstore close to the students. You are very right about Park Point. They put what is essentially an urban development in a suburb. Okay not too big of a deal. Did they put the development up to the road and lay down sidewalks to create a pedestrian friendly environment? Not at all. For a residential complex with hundreds of students, there sure is no one there.

  6. JoeV says:

    What a great dream!!!As a former Rochesterian of many decades ago who remembers the old Subway system, I could envision a public transportation system of this nature coupled with the former shopping and entertainment venues that were part of this great city in the 1940’s-50’s. Today, Rochester could have been a 1st class city if city and county planners had a vision to preserve and expand its former resources rather than demolish and deplete Center City into a parking lot.
