Filling In: Tops Plaza

Friday, February 27th, 2015

Tops Plaza on Winton Rd south of Blossom [PHOTO: Google Streetview]
By Matthew Denker

Some of you may know that there is a shiny, new-ish, giant Wegmans in Rochester. It’s over at East and Winton. Savvier readers may know about another grocery store nary a block away (but clearly on the wrong side of the tracks!). That’s right, there’s also a Tops. In addition, it has come to my attention that there are plans for an Aldi across the street on the site containing the old Roly-door building and Jim’s. For a city with few urban grocery stores, there’s food for everyone over here…

Little House in the City

Sunday, January 25th, 2015

Tucked away in a remote corner of downtown Rochester, facing the back side of the Geva Theatre and surrounded on all sides by parking lots, stands this unassuming brick house. [PHOTO: RochesterSubway.com]
By Mike Governale

Tucked away in a remote corner external link of downtown, facing the back side of the Geva Theatre and surrounded on all sides by parking lots, stands this unassuming brick house. In downtown Rochester there are several lonely buildings like this one, still hanging on long after its neighbors have all been read their last rites.

I admire old little structures like this. Maybe it doesn’t have a glamourous story to tell. But it’s stuck it out for the last 150+ years – from Rochester’s boom, all the way through the toughest times this rusty city could throw at it. Whenever I’ve visited Geva Theatre I’ve taken notice of this one and wondered if it would find new life…

By Matthew Denker

Today’s RocLink photo was taken by Chris Seward external link on April 3, 2010 in an abandoned building in Lockport. Chris says the three-story building was brimming with antique motorcycles and parts. According to this article external link the bikes made their way here from Kohl’s Cycle Salvage shop on the north side of the Erie Canal.

Three Heads Brewery & Tasting Room Planned for Neighborhood Of The Arts

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

FSI Development of Rochester plans to build a brewery and tasting room on the empty lot at 186 Atlantic Ave. for lease to Three Heads Brewing.
By Mike Governale

You may have heard FSI Development of Rochester has purchased the empty lot at 186 Atlantic Ave external link (a.k.a. The Gleason Lot). Here at RocSubway we’ve fantasized about filling in this empty lot for quite some time. And although it’s not our original vision, the actual plan may be even better than how we dreamed it – primarily because it involves a local brew.

FSI is planning to build a brewery and tasting room on the southeast corner of the site to lease to Three Heads Brewery external link of Honeoye Falls. Damn, why didn’t we think of this…

Tristan O'Tierney creates a fiery version of spin art in the Rochester Subway. [PHOTO: Tristan O'Tierney, Flickr]
By Matthew Denker

The image above was created by Tristan O’Tierney external link last October in the Rochester Subway. Tristan attached a common kitchen whisk to some string, put some fine grade steel wool inside the whisk, lit the wool on fire, and then swung the whisk around for a 30 second exposure. The result is perhaps the most beautiful version of spin art we’ve ever seen.
