From local development to just plain news of the weird, here are your RocLinks for this past week…
Look out below! A piece of the Broad Street Bridge self-demolished right into the Genesee. Apparently it was due to be actively demolished soon anyway, so hopefully this saves a few bucks for the city.
This coming Wednesday at 7pm come to the Landmark Society for an open meeting of the Young Urban Preservationists. Not only should it be a roaring good time, I have it on good authority that you will be able to throw rotten fruit directly at me.
Apparently Rochesterians owe far less on mortgages than the rest of the state and the country in general. That can’t be all bad.
It’s cramped in here
Rochester Guy implores you to get out of the car. If only Rochester had but one car. That said, he makes some excellent points. Walk some. It’s good for you, and maybe you’ll catch some Pokemon while you’re at it.
And finally, remember when the Great Lakes and surrounding rivers kept catching fire due to pollution a while back? Well apparently the problem now is that the Great Lakes are full of flame retardants. What a strange twist.
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!
