The reconstruction effort has wasted no time, and the street has quickly begun to be deconstructed first. There's no doubt that when the project is complete, Rochester is in for a fresh visual appearance.

As we proceeded downtown, we passed the hustle and bustle of Main Street and arrived at the quaint little property of the Royal Park Hotel . This would be our first … [Read more...]
