My take on Rochester NY

The snow keeps coming in Rochester NY. I, for one, love it. I think this is a great town when it is all white. It is most fun to take the kids sledding on one of the many hills in Rochester NY. With a bunch of fresh snow, and a blue sky up above, you can have a great afternoon with the family. They kids tire themselves out running up and down the hill after the sled. And don’t think for a minute that the parents are not having fun also. They are.

Just take a run down one of Rochester’s great hills at high speed and even the most meek parent will let out a huge scream. And don’t underestimate the cathartic value of screaming. If you are thinking this sounds really cold, you need to understand that people in Rochester, NY are prepared. They have lots of layers and know how to dress for the cold. And there is simply nothing better than the warm soup when you come in after your time in the snow.



Apartment Rochester

Have you seen what is on the Internet when searching apartment Rochester? You will get a bunch of national apartment listing firms that build city-specific sites. I guess they have decided that the Rochester apartment market is big enough for them to come into. Thus they have launched their sites, but are not really local.

The entire Internet is moving more toward local listings. Rochester NY is no exception. This is as much true for apartment guides as it is anything. You can see this when you search apartment rochester in any of the major search engines. The question is, are they really able to support our local needs from a distance? Or is it better to use a local Rochester apartments listing service when you need to find a new place to live.



Downtown Rochester

Are you paying attention to what is happening with downtown Rochester? Are rather what is not happening down there?

Midtown used to be a family-friendly place. It had offices and shops. It was a destination. I’m not saying that it’s not anymore. Certainly there are businesses there. But it is not like it was before. There is much less in downtown Rochester than there used to be. The jobs are not there, so neither are the people.

There is a push by the government to bring jobs back. They have figured out that economic expansion is the path to revitalize the downtown. I say good for them. We should all be behind this move to get things moving.
