Bike Share and You

Monday, January 9th, 2017

Map of potential bike share stations [PHOTO: Zagster]
By Matthew Denker

As some of you may have heard, bike shareexternal link is coming to Rochester.external link I’ve considered writing about it all sorts of ways. I thought about mentioning how manyexternal link other cities have it. Or how safeexternal link it is. Or even the specific plansexternal link for Rochester (warning: PDF). As you may have already guessed, I’m not about to do any of that. Instead, I’d like to discuss what bike share has meant for me over the past decade, and what it might mean for you too.

Filling In: Aldi Revisted

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Aldi Sign [Image: Matzo Electric Signs]
By Matthew Denker

Welcome back, readers – it’s been a while! But now that summer is drawing to a close, and we’re starting to stock up for the long winter ahead (wouldn’t want to be THIS guy external link), it’s time to start Filling In again. For our first discussion, let’s revisit Aldi. When we last wrote about it, Mike was advocating for getting good design, and I was putting forward a couple ideas about how the store might improve its relationship with the neighborhood . “Fine,” you say, “where is this going?” Well I’m glad you asked.

New Rochester-to-Henrietta Multimodal Connection Planned

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Rendering of Proposed Multimodal Corridor connecting Henrietta with downtown Rochester.
By Matthew Denker

[PLEASE NOTE: This was an April Fools posting. Joke’s over.]

RochesterSubway.com has just learned of preliminary plans for what’s being called the Rochester Southern Communities Active Transportation (R-SCAT) project. By building on Monroe County’s original 1947 highway plan, Rochester, Brighton, and Henrietta have agreed to the construction of a new, multimodal connection from downtown Rochester to the New York State Thruway…

Winton Village Aldi Rendering
By Matthew Denker

Welcome back, readers. As you know, we’ve previously discussed things to do with Tops should Aldi be built at Winton Road and Blossom Road. There’s also been a discussion about how the construction of Aldi went in Irondequoit. Today, I’d like to take a look at a few reasonably simple changes that would completely change the tenor of the proposed development…

A Beautiful Day for a Change

Friday, September 26th, 2014

A bike parked outside the Village Gate, Rochester NY.
By Mike Governale

I’m generally a pretty happy person, but this time of year I’ve noticed my spirit has a tendency to drop a few pegs. Probably has something to do with the shorter days or whatever. Who knows. Anyway, it occurs to me that I’m not alone. There are LOTS of unhappy people out there. If you drive on the highways and byways of greater Rochester, you’ll get to meet many of them.

This week I foolishly let myself get drawn into not one, but two ugly squabbles. The first was with a driver who sped up to catch me from behind (in the right lane mind you) and then refused to let me merge when our two lanes became one. So, like a bozo, I whaled on my horn for a while and shook my fist in the air at the guy to make sure he saw me in his rear view mirror…
