Not many people know, but Rochester used to have a subway in 1930's. It used to be a station underneath of the library and you can still visit to see the history. Now the sight is famous for the graffiti and many graffiti artists visit here and constantly change the pictures. You can get in either the Dinosaur BBQ side or the Blue cross arena side. Many graffiti are underneath of the bridge next to the library. Also the bridge used to be a part of Eire canal before it became a subway. The water went over the river on the bridge. Is it cool, hum?

We are very happy about this a brand new cafe in our neighborhood, walking distant from our place! It is a great place to work and meet people. They are very social conscious and hire many local young kids and train them as coffee masters.

It is the pride of Rochester and a high quality super market from Rochester. The Pittsford Wegmans is, I think, the biggest one and nicest one of all. It is worth to visit.

The oldest and best winery in Finger lake area. In 50's Dr. Frank who had a Ph.D. of viticulture move in Finger lake area and invented the way to raise the European grapes in the cold North America climate in the first time. Now the Finger lake area is the homes of thousands of wineries and the second largest wine producing area in US. after Napa. Their Riesling is amazing. You need to try.
