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.

Inside the Abandoned Camp Haccamo, Penfield

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

Abandoned Camp Haccamo, Penfield NY. [IMAGE: Snoop Junkie]
By Snoop Junkie

Since 1955, Camp Haccamo has been a fun filled getaway for both adults and children with varying mental and physical disabilities. First established on Panorama Creek Drive in Penfield external link (just behind Panorama Plaza), Haccamo was free to the 300 plus campers per year who participated. But in 2009 camp organizers ended their relationship with the town of Penfield and moved to Rush, NY – while, oddly, leaving quite a bit of stuff behind…

Filling In: Aldi

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…

I’ve been writing Filling in Columns for over 2 years now (starting with this one on Exchange Street), and I’ve realized that it’s high time to have a discussion about my vision for the column, what I write, and why I write it…

Filling In: Tops Plaza

Friday, February 27th, 2015

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…

Historic Brighton Village

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Former site of historic Brighton Village. March, 2010. [PHOTO: RochesterSubway.com]
This weekend, Wegmans closed their current East Avenue store so they could transition into their new, larger building external link. The new store replaces a historic area that was once the center of Brighton in the 19th century. The old Village of Brighton was served by the Erie Canal (now I-490). The canal was rerouted in the early 20th century and the entire area was annexed to the City of Rochester in 1905…

Signs of Progress in Irondequoit?

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

A perspective drawing of proposed 'Irondequoit Square' at Titus and Cooper.
I dropped by the Irondequoit Planning Board meeting Monday night because there were two very interesting matters on the agenda. One of those was Irondequoit Square (or I-Square) which RocSubway broke news of here last August. The other involved an all-but-forgotten friend, Chase-Pitkin…
