I'm looking for some information about an old rollerskating rink in Rochester, I believe it was called USA Skate maybe in Webster or Pittsford area in the 80s until the late 90s. If anyone has any solid information that would be great, particularly where exactly it was located and what year it closed. And bonus would be any site online with this information and/or pictures (or thru email!). Thanks!

you can find pics and info on the USA skating group on Facebook. DJ Brian worked there through 1989.

It was the worst of the rinks in the region . Guess why it closed !

City thugs fighting and chimping out on wheels . Insurance premiums went sky high for law suits . Security would not solve the problems .
Another venue closed by Farrel animals .

The Democrat and Chronicle said it closed in 1993, but this doesn't make sense to me since I remember going there in around 1995 ish time frame with an ex.

Look up Steve Snow, he was DJ at USA in the 70's-80's. I was there from about when it opened til 93 when I wasn't allowed to skate because I was pregnant with my daughter.
