Two Upsets In One Year? Not Likely.

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

RochesterSubway.com and CITY Newspaper will go head to head in CITY's 'Best Of 2013' contest. (see line #74 on the ballot)
In what’s being called one of Rochester’s biggest election upsets, City Council President Lovely Warren handed Mayor Tom Richards his hat in this week’s Democratic primary for mayor.

In another, unrelated election race, Rochesterians are now asking if RochesterSubway.com has any shot of upsetting CITY Newspaper for Best Local Website of 2013 in CITY Newspaper’s own “Best Of” contest external link (on line #74).

Spoiler alert: The answer is NO! — N… O.

I mean, come on! It’s CITY’s own contest. This ain’t no mayoral race.

What’s With Selleck?

Tom Selleck at Letchworth State Park for RochesterSubway.com
RochesterSubway.com has been nominated for Best Local Blog of 2012. If you’d like to cast your vote, simply fill out City Newspaper’s Final Ballot external link before October 3 (5pm) and select “RochesterSubway.com” for question #66.

Many people have been asking why Tom Selleck of the classic TV drama Magnum P.I. has been campaigning for RochesterSubway. Tom held a press conference at Letchworth State Park this weekend to answer these questions…

RochesterSubway.com for Best Local Blog of 2012

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

Vote RochesterSubway.com for City Newspaper's 'Best of 2012' ...the only blog for fans of Selleck, sandwiches, waterfalls and Rochester NY. [IMAGE INSPIRED BY: The Selleck Waterfall Sandwich Blog]
There is literally a blog for everything. Don’t believe me? Pick three completely random things… let’s say… Tom Selleck, waterfalls and sandwiches. YES, there’s a blog for that external link. But what if you’re a fan of Tom Selleck, waterfalls, sandwiches, and Rochester NY? Thankfully, there’s RochesterSubway.com.

If you’ve enjoyed flipping thru these pages with me over the past 12 months or longer, why not show your support by voting for RochesterSubway.com in the CITY Newspaper’s Best Of Rochester 2012 Reader’s Poll external link? (Vote “RochesterSubway.com for line #66: “Best Blog”)

And if you’re a newcomer to the Subway (or you’re just nostalgic like me), let’s take a look back at the most popular stories we dug up over the past 12 months…

A Drive-Thru Rochester

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

Freeze frame from the video. This guy can often found on the corner of Monroe and Goodman peddling pizza and our camera happened to catch him while we were stopped at the light.
A few weeks ago I was driving home from my downtown office and happened to have my camera with me. Not sure why but I thought it be interesting to see what I’d capture if I left it on my dashboard for the ride. Now don’t try this at home—distracted driving is not cool. I’m a professional… idiot that is.

Anyway, the results I thought were pretty cool. And it got even cooler with some quick editing and quadruple speed playback. Throw in a mirror effect and some of that dope-ass hip hop music all the kids are listening to… and now we’ve got something worth sharing.

So go ahead—turn down the lights, pump up the volume, and hit it full screen. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Rochester Subway Super Bowl Ad Featuring 50 Cent

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

It’s been widely reported that RochesterSubway.com is spending millions on a new Super Bowl TV spot this year featuring rapper and hip hop megastar 50 Cent. We’re not going to rain on the parade—maybe the ad will air during the Super Bowl, maybe it won’t. You’ll have to watch the game to find out. But you won’t have to wait to see it. Watch the spot… then read the rest of this post to find out how we got 50 to star in our Rochester Subway production…

Tokens of Rochester’s Past

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

Various Rochester transit tokens from the collection of RochesterSubway.com. All tokens are available for purchase.

We’ve been scouring the internet, libraries, archives, and antique shops all over western New York in search of anything we can get our hands on that may have had anything to do with Rochester’s subway. It’s all fair game— from old photos, postcards, tickets and passes—even stories and opinions from our readers. In our searching we’ve learned that the tiniest subway finds are usually the coolest. Case in point—tokens—at just 16mm (that’s millimeters), many of these coins are small enough to get stuck up your noseexternal link. But don’t try it. Trust us.

What Do You Need A Blog For Dude?

Friday, January 16th, 2009

I’ve been working hard to add new and exciting stuff to RochesterSubway.com over the past month. Not the least of which is this handy-dandy Blog thingy. Relax, we won’t be calling it a “Blog” — that’s so 2005. We’ll just call them articles and I’ll be posting them as we have news or stories to share.
