Hey guys, just wanted to share some photos of the ROC with you all. A buddy of mine, one who I go shooting with 90% of the time took some photos in ROC on day and I wasn't there. He has some great views and I just wanna share them with you.

Photos courtesy of N M Oaksford













Cool huh? I'm trying to get him to join the site as well. :)

The "Claw" has to be my favorite Rochester building, or at least my favorite architectural piece in the city.

Meanwhile, that building just to the left of Xerox in the first picture (don't know the name?) is a crime against the solar system.

The building to the left (partially obscured by a tree) in the third picture reminds me of a shorter version of the Liberty Bldg in Buffalo. Same style and basic layout.

lol, The times square buiding, yeah it is pretty cool. Rochester names a lot of its streets, buildings and parks after those of NYC.... Park Avenue, Central Park (where my grandmother grew up), Times Square, Manhattan Square etc.

You are moving to Providence? That's great, a real renessaince city. Maybe after some time there you can give the Upstate cities some specific tips to follow in it's footsteps.

i already can tell you that providence took it upon itself to bring it back from decline. while upstate cities have been too busy passing the buck and waiting for the state to fix things.

perhaps NY has the leash too tight in comparrison with Rhode Island?

I dunno, NY controls every aspect of NY, cities and counties are kinda just there, but not governed as intended by any means.

I can't speak for RI, but in NH, county governments are virtually invisible. That role seems to be filled by the municipality, at least in NH's case as the state government is relatively "hands-off". Call it the anti-NYS; but believe me it breeds it's own problems, though not to say it's worse because it probably isn't.

I suggested before that Albany was not the sole source of our problems, but got blasted by our resident troll for saying so (not to mention being accused for causing the problems). But it's the fact of the matter, our local government has just as much to fix. I'll jump on Albany the same as the next guy, but answer me this: if you can't fix your own problems at home, how are you supposed to fix somebody else's? (Analogous to "how can you love someone else if you can't love yourself?")
