I have seen the film. I know these things about Rochester:

Its people are clean. They love to garden. They drive large station wagons. They raise money to support the symphony orchestra.

The men wear coats and ties. The women wear dresses. They come downtown and park their cars in “self-liquidating parking lots.” They get out of their cars and go to Midtown Plaza where they stare at the Clock of Nations. They love ice cream. They love apples. They smile a lot.

Midtown Plaza, the first indoor mall in the United States, was just 1 year old when the film came out. It’s gone now, a victim of changing shopping patterns.(Fill in the blanks)

I hear storys all the time about rochesters history, and how nice and safe it was I just recently found out there was an amusment park on scottsville rd near the airport. Rochester is the only metropolitan city in the usa with a waterfall/river flowing threw it.... Now what the hell happened you axe ? careless disrespectful minorities started house squating and then section 8/ state assistance came along and went downhill from there ( still going downhill faster then ever)

Listen, Iescape. Just because you didnt get the replies you wanted to hear, you don't have to bump up your topic with another name. You did the same thing with the reynolds street thread. I see a pattern. You can fool some people, but you're not fooling me. As usual, you answered with an ignorant reply. Call me the panther, so what? I AM THE PANTHER! You are a coward, and take your sock puppet somewhere else.
