After seeing the promotional videos, I began to wonder if I’ve been focusing too much on the problems of Rochester. Perhaps I can take a moment to think about some of the good aspects.

Markets seem to bring people together and become a place for exchanges of goods and ideas.  It was also one of the motivations behind [Daphne and] my summer research on markets in Rome and Paris.  From what I can tell remotely, Rochester has a great Public Market that began in 1905.  Could we bring this type of activity back into downtown?
