Inside Downtown Tour: View from the Top


September 12 and 13. It’s a little more than a month away: the date when all of Rochester (and a good portion of Monroe County) will be at your feet. The Inside Downtown Tour will give you the “View from the Top” as penthouses and rooftops are open for the 2014 ticket holders. It’s all part of the effort to showcase urban living and working in re-purposed buildings – and to have a great time doing so! >>Read the latest post on our website for more details about this year’s Tour location and sites!

The Landmark Society’s Young Urban Preservationists (YUPs) presented Open the Gates @ St. Joseph’s Park this past Friday.
