I attempted to map all the parking lots [in orange] found on Rochester’s aerial image but soon came to realize its immense scope.  I think I covered all if not most of the parking areas inside the loop and some outside.  It is a bad sign when parking dominates so much of downtown.

As a point of reference, the image below includes the same diagram from above but layered over the aerial map with highlighted vegetated [green] spaces.  What would happen if a portion of the orange becomes green?  How could we use the abandoned subway line to enliven the sea of parking?
