Architecture for Lunch: High Falls / Brown’s Race
June 9, 2017 @ 12:10 PM - 12:35 PM
Timed to fit in with busy schedules and week-day lunch breaks, these 20-minute presentations feature information about the history and architecture of downtown Rochester neighborhoods. Led by Cynthia Howk, Landmark Society staff member and local history expert.
Architecture for Lunch tours are FREE and open to the public, held rain or shine, for the most interesting lunch break you’ve ever taken.
Meet Cynthia at 12:10 PM at the Pont-des-Rennes pedestrian bridge, Platt St. (corner of Brown’s Race). Discover Rochester’s oldest industrial district, established during our “Flour City” era, with dramatic views of the Genesee River, High Falls, and the adjacent 19th-century buildings now converted for office, residential and recreational use.
