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

The Arts!

D&C has a delightful writeup cataloging all the great stuffexternal link that is happening in the Neighborhood of the Arts. Do give it a go.

Get My Disguise

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, the inaugural Flower City Comic Con is happeningexternal link downtown at the convention center. Sounds like a blast, and I hope it is successful enough to become a permanent fixture annually.

W2W4

Curious what you should be keeping an eye on development-wise downtown? Look no further than this postexternal link for a variety of the most interesting goings-on this year.

Spare a Moment?

And finally, if you have a moment this weekend, consider takingexternal link the city’s 2016 Focused Investment Strategy Survey. Every little bit counts.

  1. Stefanie says:

    Thanks for including our development post!

  2. Max says:

    Any particular reason you picked the top picture? I spent a few minutes the other day looking into that courtyard pondering more exciting uses than 2 benches and a few plants…

  3. Carl says:

    Back when we still had a downtown worth going to this courtyard used to be an ice skating rink

  4. WOW travel! Ok, couple quick things.

    First – you’re welcome. It’s a great article.

    Second, I’d been sitting on the photo for a while (frankly, I’ve been sitting on a ton of Rochester photos for a while), and just decided to use it here. It is an unfortunately underutilized space downtown.

    Third – despite my belief that there are ample reasons to go downtown, Rochester needs only so many ice rinks, and with one around the corner from here at MLK Park, there’s really no need for this to be one too.
