Today’s RocLink photo was taken by Chris Seward 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 the bikes made their way here from Kohl’s Cycle Salvage shop on the north side of the Erie Canal. The Mr. Kohl died in 2002, and the motorcycles were left here until the building crumbled around them.
And now, from local development to just plain news of the weird, here are your RocLinks for this past week…
Before and After
Check out this incredible before and after of Rochester (and other Northeast Cities). I want to apologize in advance to the RocSubway reader who made something similar that I cannot, for the life of me, find the link to. But thanks to Philip Tifone for sharing this one with us.
In this week’s Department of Good Things Sometimes Happen, we offer an update on the Chautauqua Institute’s Plans to ‘renovate’ the Amp. Spoiler alert: they’re holding off to see CJS’s idea (Never a bad plan).
Follow Up Part Deux
That parking summit appears to have flummoxed the fine folks at the D&C. It seems to have been more about getting around downtown and did not propose to tear down the Windstream building to provide parking for the new D&C headquarters they are about to construct next door to it.
As if the Harts guys didn’t already steal my idea for opening a grocery store downtown, they’ve now taken my concept for grocery delivery in Rochester. Next thing I know, they’re going to announce that they already have the mind-reading device I’ve been developing.
Circular Reference Warning
And finally, because they linked to me, I’m legally obligated to link back with the convenient pretense that I LOVE development. That’s right, it’s Pt. 1 of the Rochesteriat’s 10 developments to watch in 2015.
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!
