Rare political rancor in Pittsford The Village of Pittsford has mostly avoided dramatic political races. Candidates have generally kept to the issues and refrained from ad hominem attacks. In some cases, former opponents have even become allies But this year, the village elections — the mayoral race, in particular — have a different tenor. A proposed development at 75 Monroe Avenue, a prominent gateway into the village, is at the center of an unusually contentious election.
Pittsford’s character is important to residents; that’s one of the main reasons people move to the village. It’s the potential impact of the Monroe Avenue proposal on the village’s prized historic character that makes the project controversial and, for many, unwelcome. That’s where the mayoral candidates come in. Longtime Mayor Bob Corby faces a challenge from Trustee Trip Pierson, and both candidates say they’d be the best choice to ensure that the village retains its character.

There is no hope for RCSD (“Clock Ticking for RCSD?”). The only hope is dissolution of the district and disbursement of the students throughout Monroe County. However, political sense forbids it. If Monroe County citizens don’t realize this, then they are uncaring and don’t really give a f*** about minorities in Monroe County. Basically they feel that RCSD students will corrupt their children. I guess they have a low esteem of their own children. CARY BARNHART

we would literally be bankrupted by the kinds of sacrifices that Dean Burdick seems to think reasonable for a family like ours to pay for a school like the U of R. For the families of the working poor, like those of many Rochester school district students, college must seem like an exorbitant fantasy. Colleges like the U of R need to stand with their students and against the Wall Street gangsters. Let them make their billions in some other way. Our students’ future is not for sale! TUCKER RUDERMAN

Unlike my Gen X generation, Millennials have loads of info about damn near anything at their fingertips via the Internet. If you expect honest “guidance” from college admission counselors, really, what are you thinking? I can understand a naive highschool grad getting hornswoggled, but their loan-co-signing parents? Come on! If you can get the loan money for a Mercedes but make only $20k a year, do you expect the car salesman to try to talk you into a cheaper model? Colleges are businesses, and not just businesses, but hugely government subsidized ones. Want to see college tuition costs drop? Reduce or remove the governmentguaranteed loans and you’d see people getting a lot more practical real fast about where and for what they go to college or which one they send their kid off to. MCC99
As a U of R grad (undergrad and master’s in teaching) and a Rochester school district teacher, I am disgusted by Dean Jonathan Burdick’s callousness towards the crippling effects of the financial crisis on American poor and working families. In a time of stagnant wages, mortgage meltdowns, widespread un- and under-employment, and looming government cutbacks, Dean Burdick, and by extension, the U of R leadership, have declared themselves firmly on the side of Wall Street and the 1%. Too many colleges and universities hike tuition and fees every year without reason, while the big banks bleed students dry for decades after graduation with mountains of student loan debt. My wife and I both have good middle-class jobs with benefits, but
journalism, and most “news” sources are relying more and more on opinions, unpaid bloggers and pundits making money from the books they sell on the side, there is essentially no “profession” left in that field worth pursuing. At some point, you would think that a financial aid counselor would tell her to face reality and choose a degree that has at least some potential. I read a story about a man who owes $120k for his culinary college education, and all he could find in his field was a job as a line cook at a chain restaurant, for $10 an hour.
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com There are too many people going to college for the sake of going to college. Many of them are not learning any tangible skills like engineering or medicine. What we end up with is a crop of graduates with degrees in sociology, film studies, women’s studies, anthropology, and political science. They’re great at critical thinking, but can’t begin to offer employers a useful skill set on the job. FORSYTHE P. JONES

White jumps in
I’m excited that this may finally be the year that we have a genuine dialogue about Rochester’s problems (“Alex White Wants to Run For Mayor,” News Blog). For way too long, we have had 100 percent Democrat governance, and I am not impressed. Stagnation, decline, and a lack of citizen involvement are the name of the game nowadays. Not everything sucks, but it’s very obvious that we are not maximizing our resources, and I think we need new leadership to do so. PATRICK CHASE
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com Kudos to Alex White for presenting himself once again as a candidate. The dynamics of this election cycle, however, will be very different from 2011. The “compressed” Special Election effectively placed him as the electoral equivalent of a Democratic Party Primary candidate. Short of passing petitions to run in the September Democratic Primary, he will appear on the November ballot in an inconsequential General Election. I do, though, have respect for his ideals and his participation. MIKE

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Obama’s second term
At this early stage, it’s hard to predict what kind of president Barack Obama will be over the next four years. He seems to be abandoning, at last, the hesitancy and timidity of his first term. And in the long list of initiatives in his State of the Union address last week, he gave us a sense of where he wants to go. While some of what he said was encouraging, some was troubling. I liked the push for gun control, pre-school, a more sensible tax system, an increase in the minimum wage, and an end to the attempts to prevent Americans from voting. I liked his call for dealing with climate change. But I was sorry to hear him push for more natural gas drilling. Not now. Not until we know whether we can do it safely and in an environmentally sound way. Sadly, Obama seems to be more enchanted with fossil-fuel development than with environmental protection. I liked his appeal to the common good, his insistence “that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and to future generations, that our rights are wrapped up in the rights of others….” And I found a bit of hope in his hint (and it wasn’t much more than that) that his administration might reconsider its counterterrorism approach. He said he wants to be sure that “our targeting, detention, and prosecution of terrorists remains consistent with our laws and system of checks and balances.” I hope so. But unfortunately, he prefaced that statement by saying his administration “has worked tirelessly to forge a durable policy framework to guide our counterterrorism efforts.” It looks more like his administration has followed the example of his predecessor: working tirelessly to devise ways to justify its counterterrorism efforts. As a recent New York Times editorial said, the administration’s document justifying its actions “had the air of a legal justification written after the fact for a policy decision that had already been made, and brought back unwelcome memories of memos written for President George W. Bush to justify illegal wiretapping, indefinite detention, kidnapping, abuse, and torture.” Under current, “justified” policies, in addition to (and sometimes rather than) troops on the ground, we have CIA operatives and unmanned drones going after human targets. Those targets – which can include American citizens in other countries – are selected and snuffed out, with no hearing, no trial. Who can pick the targets? According to the Justice Department document made public earlier this month, it will be “an informed, high-level official of the United States.”
We’re in a new kind of war. But we cannot ignore the US Constitution, international law, and human decency.
And as a Times article noted last spring, the top Selector is the president of the United States. With no Congressional or court oversight. No appeal. “Having the executive being the prosecutor, the judge, the jury, and the executioner, all in one, is very contrary to the traditions and the laws of this country,” Maine Senator Angus King said during his questioning of John Brennan this month. “The Fifth Amendment is pretty clear: no deprivation of life, liberty, or property without due process of law,” said King. “And we’re depriving American citizens of their life when we target them with a drone attack.” Supporters of the Obama and Bush policies argue that we are involved in a new kind of war – not against nations, but against individual terrorists scattered around the world –and that this battle requires a new kind of warfare. Well, yes. But those who wage that battle cannot ignore the US Constitution, international law, and human decency. Nor can they ignore long-term consequences. And there is already plenty of evidence that our tactics are creating new terrorists as we eliminate existing ones. It is past time for a broad public discussion of our new kind of warfare – and for Congressional oversight of the administration’s national-security policies. Yes, there is risk to involving Congress. But checks and balances are a foundation of our government, and the risk to the nation of circumventing them is far greater.

Fracking regs delayed
State Health Department Commissioner Nirav Shah said he anticipates completing his health review of high-volume hydraulic fracturing within a few weeks. But his announcement signaled that the state Department of Environmental Conservation would miss its deadline to finalize fracking regulations. Department officials will have to resubmit the regulations and hold a public comment period on them. But DEC Commissioner Joseph Martens said that the department could begin reviewing well permits without the final regulations in place.
MCC moves along
The Monroe County Legislature voted to let the county buy space from Kodak for a new Monroe Community College city campus. But Legislature Democrats – all of whom voted against the legislation – and Mayor Tom Richards say the county unnecessarily rushed the deal. The county plans to buy several buildings and part of a parking lot from Kodak. The negotiated price: just under $3 million.
City to appeal bar-hours decision
Mayor Tom Richards said the city would appeal a state Supreme Court ruling that would prevent the city from requiring a bar to close earlier than it’s allowed to under state liquor laws. A bar had sued the city over limitations on its weekday operating hours. In a statement, Richards said the city is trying to balance neighborhood and business concerns.
Border agents’ incentives questioned
A recent study raises suspicions about a possible link between a generous incentive program for US Border Patrol agents and aggressive enforcement between 2006 and 2010. The report says agents working in Upstate New York, including in the Rochester area, participated in a $1 million program, getting as much as $2,500 in cash, 40 extra hours of vacation, and $100 Home Depot gift cards. The report also showed that agents made more than 300 wrongful arrests, often of foreign students with legal status.

Neighborhood needs Physically, there’s little doubt that neighborhoods participating in the City of Rochester’s Focused Investment program have improved, says Mayor Tom Richards. The real question — and it’s elusive — is whether people’s lives have improved, he says. About five years ago, the city singled out four challenged neighborhoods for intense investment: Beechwood, Dewey-Driving Park, Jefferson Avenue, and Marketview Heights. Federal grant money and other resources have been used to rehab homes, for demolition, and many other efforts. Now that the initial five-year period is nearly over, the city is
evaluating FIS to determine how and whether to proceed. “Is this the right policy?” Richards asks. “And if so, do we work longer in these areas? Do we pick some new areas?” The evaluation, which is being done by the city’s department of Business and Housing Development, won’t be ready for at least a couple of months. Kyle Crandall, president of the Beechwood Neighborhood Coalition, says FIS has significantly improved the appearance of Webster Avenue, where the program is concentrated. And the effort has attracted private investment, he says.
“People are willing to invest in areas where they see the potential for sustained growth,” he says. More people are coming to neighborhood meetings, he says, which signals they’re willing to take responsibility for and contribute to their neighborhood. Even if the city redirects the federal money that comes through FIS, Crandall says he hopes the city and the neighborhood can continue to work together so Beechwood doesn’t lose its momentum. “We’re trying to pull our weight, but it needs to be a partnership,” Crandall says. “The city can’t do it alone, and we can’t do it alone.”

State releases plan for Hemlock, Canadice The State Department of Environmental Conservation has released a draft plan outlining how it will manage its land around Canadice and Hemlock Lakes. The DEC will accept comments on the draft unit management plan – available at www.dec. ny.gov/lands/68822.html – through April 15. And it has scheduled a public information session for 6:30 p.m. on March 14 at Springwater Fire Hall, 8145 South Main Street, Springwater. DEC representatives will give a presentation at 7 p.m. Hemlock and Canadice are the only two Finger Lakes with undeveloped shorelines. Rochester uses the lakes for its drinking water supply and started buying the land surrounding them in 1896. In 2010, the state bought approximately 6,700 acres of land, now known as the Hemlock-Canadice State Forest, from the city. One of the plan’s key functions is to help the agency balance recreational use and ecosystem preservation and restoration within the forest, says regional DEC spokesperson Linda Vera. The 10-year plan lays out goals and objectives for the forest, and also includes recommended actions and policies to meet them. For example, the plan recommends a carryin-carry-out policy for garbage, continued
monitoring of bald eagle nesting sites, stocking the lakes with fish as needed, and stocking pheasants for public hunting. It also recommends continuing to harvest timber to encourage Hemlock Lake. plant and tree diversity. FILE PHOTO But one section of the plan that will probably receive significant public attention deals with oil and gas drilling. The plan doesn’t plainly state whether DEC will allow drilling on the forest lands, though it suggest that it won’t. The regional DEC office did not respond to a request for clarification in time for publication. The DEC has a policy not to allow surface drilling in areas with intensive recreational use or sensitive habitats, including wetlands and steep slopes, the plan says. Much of the Hemlock-Canadice forest land will fall under the “exclusion zones,” and further assessment will probably result in a recommendation not to allow surface drilling in the park, the plan says.

Each one of the 31 red-light cameras in the City of Rochester is supposed to have an accompanying sign posted nearby, warning motorists of the presence of the cameras. But at a meeting last week, City Council members Adam McFadden and Elaine Spaull said they’ve noticed redlight intersections without signs. “We were told they all would have signs,” McFadden said. | City spokesperson Gary Walker says all the red-light intersections did have signs at one time, but some may have gone missing or become obscured by foliage. He says that a city engineering team is checking every location and that missing signs would be quickly replaced. | At the same meeting, Council members questioned Mayor Tom Richards about the recent scandal that caused the City of Chicago to drop Redflex as its red-light camera vendor; Rochester uses Redflex, too. | According to the Chicago Tribune, Redflex “gave thousands of dollars in free trips to the former city official” who oversaw the program. | Richards said it appears that only a few people were involved in the scandal, and that it shouldn’t affect the company as a whole. | “We’ll stay close to it,” Richards said.

Scouting ways out of the culture war Joel Helfrich was once a Boy Scout, eventually earning enough merit badges to reach Scouting’s highest rank: Eagle Scout. His experience with the Scouts while growing up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and Pittsford was wonderful, he says, yet last year Helfrich renounced his affiliation with the Boy Scouts of America.

Helfrich returned all of his scouting materials and awards to the Greater Rochester region’s Seneca Waterways Council to protest the BSA’s policy of banning openly gay people from participation. “I have no regrets,” he says. “I should have done it sooner.” But the incident exemplifies what Stephen Hoitt, Scout executive of the SWC, calls “the tug of war” the Scouts find themselves in. “Our board here 12 years ago worked out a position statement with the Gay Alliance [of the Genesee Valley], the Rochester school district, United Way, and a number of other community organizations that says membership status [with SWC] is based on conduct and one’s behavior,” he says. “It’s not our role as an organization to teach sexuality to kids.” Hoitt says sexual orientation is not an issue for the Rochester organization, but appropriate conduct is. He uses the example of a Scout leader who comes into a room and pops a video with sexual content into the DVD player. “That is inappropriate,” he says. Whether the leader is gay or straight wouldn’t matter, Hoitt says: the person would be asked to leave. Hoitt says the public can debate who does have the right to talk about sexuality to young boys, but leaders in this community have already decided it’s definitely not a job for Scout leaders. “So it’s kind of ironic that we’re stuck in a sexual debate right now when we’ve made it clear that sexuality is not part of scouting,” he says. Whether the BSA — the national organization — will adopt a similar stance, is hard to say. Last year, the BSA reasserted its policy prohibiting openly gay people from joining the organization. The policy, essentially a national ban, survived a legal challenge in the US Supreme Court in 2000. But about a month ago, the BSA announced that it was reconsidering the policy, possibly leaving the decision to local Scout organizations. And then, days later, the BSA said it would postpone its decision until May.

The idea of welcoming gays into the organization, according to some reports,
prompted a swift and angry response from some within the BSA. But Hoitt says it’s more complicated than that. The real test for the BSA may not be whether to lift the ban, he says, but how to do it, since decision-making is extremely complicated for this multi-layered national organization. “One of the challenges we have, and we have many, is a declining youth population in New York,” Hoitt says. “There are pockets that are growing, such as in Victor, and the inner city population is growing phenomenally. But generally, the suburbs are not growing, and the overall population is declining by about 3 percent to 4 percent a year.” The Rochester organization includes Monroe, Wayne, Yates, Wyoming, Seneca, and Ontario counties, Hoitt says, with 12,500 boys in about 500 Scout groups. Roughly 70 percent of the Scout groups are sponsored by churches, and the groups cover operating costs through a combination of philanthropic donations and fund raising. For example, Boy Scouts sell popcorn, Christmas trees, and they wash cars. “The Scout units are owned by their sponsoring entities,” Hoitt says. “If you look on a national level, we have tens of thousands of Scout groups all owned by churches of different denomination and different civic groups, and all have differing views of what the Boy Scout’s standards should be. So you sort of have the Scouts at the local level caught in a civil war between two and three opposing sides.”
“Councils like us sitting up here in the Northeastern United States, one could say, are in a blue state, and we’re in a much more liberal-based community,” he says. “It’s easy for us to say we’re going to be more open, but on the national level, they’ve got to balance all of those different opinions. Changing the national policy probably plays well in the Northeast, but it is not a very popular topic in the South and Southwest right now. Volunteers there are just beside themselves with frustration that the Boy Scouts would go down this road.” An understanding exists at the highest level of the BSA organization, however, that society’s attitudes about sexual orientation are changing, Hoitt says. “Look at the number of states that have allowed gay marriage,” he says. “The military ended ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ and both presidential candidates, Obama and Romney, said the Boy Scouts of America should change the policy.” At the local level, Hoitt says he heard from religious and community leaders throughout the area when the BSA said it’s reconsidering the policy. And there are strong opinions for and against lifting the ban, he says. The one thing that hasn’t changed is the Scouts’ core mission, Hoitt says, which is helping young boys and men build character and leadership skills. A key principle for Scouts is working for the betterment of society, he says, and not for their own benefit.
POLITICS | BY JEREMY MOULE
Village elections are unique in the political world. They can bring out the best in government by giving constituents a direct, strong voice and allowing them to work hand in hand with elected officials to achieve common goals. But they can also become uncomfortably personal, and in some cases, downright vicious. The Village of Pittsford has mostly avoided that drama, however. Candidates have generally kept to the issues and refrained from ad hominem attacks. In some cases, former opponents have even become allies. But this year’s contests, especially the mayoral election, have a different tenor. A proposed development at 75 Monroe Avenue, a prominent gateway into the village, is at the center of an unusually contentious election. Pittsford’s character is important to residents; it’s one of the main reasons people move to the village. Brick storefronts line the sidewalks downtown: their large windows letting passersby peer in. Old warehouses and mills remain intact on the canal, though most have been repurposed as shops, restaurants, and offices. The overall effect calls to mind a time when life centered on the canal. It’s the potential impact of the Monroe Avenue proposal on the village’s prized historic character that makes the project controversial and for many, unwelcome. Mark IV Enterprises wants to build a 167unit apartment complex on the site, but many residents say the project’s too big and would be a poor fit with Pittsford’s smaller, historic buildings. In November, the Village Board approved special permits for the project, officially called Westport Crossing, by a three to two vote. A group of citizens is suing the village to get the permits invalidated. But the controversy may be taking the biggest toll on longtime Mayor Bob Corby, who for the first time in his 20 years on the job has lost the backing of the Republican Party. 8 CITY

Corby was first elected in 1993, and in subsequent elections has mostly run unopposed. He’s also enjoyed the endorsement of both the Democratic and Republican parties — although he’s registered with the GOP. This time around, Corby has the Democrats and Conservatives, but the Pittsford Republican Committee is backing Trip Pierson, currently a village trustee, for mayor. Pierson voted for the Westport Crossing permits and Corby voted against them. Anthony Daniele, a village resident and Republican majority leader in the Monroe County Legislature, is backing Pierson. He says that he’s backed Corby in the past and believes Corby’s done some good things for the village. But Daniele says he’s not happy with the way Corby has handled the Westport Crossing project. Corby negotiated parts of the project and kept it moving forward, only to vote against it in the end, he says.
“It’s about, from a leadership standpoint, being forthright and honest with your trustees, with the community, and with the developer,” Daniele says. Corby says he did nothing different than what he’s always done: he pushed for a better project — one that’s compatible with the village in terms of size, scale, and character. And when the board voted on the proposal, he voted first. He says he voted against the permits because he believes the proposal doesn’t ultimately conform to village standards. “I have nothing to be ashamed of and I’m disappointed that people are trying to twist it into something different than it was,” Corby says. Corby’s supporters say the village has thrived under his leadership. Monroe County Conservative Party chair Tom Cook, a village resident, says Corby has done many good things for the village,
particularly along the canal. Corby was one of the driving forces behind the redevelopment of Schoen Place, the village’s popular canalfront district. “He’s been here, he’s been doing a good job, and why change horses mid-stream?” Cook says. Pierson, who’s been a trustee since 2009
and works as president of the Mitchell Pierson Jr. real estate agency, frames the election as a leadership matter. Like Daniele, Pierson says that Corby hasn’t been forthright about his position on 75 Monroe Avenue: that he shepherded the project through only to ultimately vote against it. But Corby says he’s consistently stated his concerns and reservations about the project. He says he’s been clear that he wanted a project that met the spirit of village codes and aligned with the community’s character. He’s said that he

wants the project to become, in essence, another neighborhood within the village, and he wants a seamless fit. “I don’t think that during the process I could have been any more clear,” Corby says. Pierson says he’ll always be upfront as mayor, but he’ll respond when he hears compelling reasons to change his position. Leaders can’t be fence-sitters, he says. “Sometimes leadership’s tough and sometimes you have to say things and do things that maybe a group of people in the room don’t agree with,” he says. “But if it’s
time. And he voted in favor of the rezoning, though in hindsight he says he should have had more information before doing so. Corby stands by the decision to rezone the property, though he says the board should have taken more time to deliberate. Still, the intent of the code was to add an extra layer of protection — the special permits — and that goal was met, Corby says, even if the code itself isn’t perfect. The Westport Crossing review doesn’t end with the permit approvals granted by the Board of Trustees. The project
Pierson is on the Republican ticket with candidates Christopher Linares and Leslie Buck. Linares and Buck are also running on the No to 75 Monroe line; Buck says the line is a way for the candidates to be upfront about their opposition to the current Westport Crossing plan. Linares, who moved to the village about two years ago, is a senior vice president at Hickey Freeman and over the past 20 years has served on the town Republican Committee on an on-andoff basis.

the Monoco Oil asphalt plant, but a court ordered it shut down in 2000. Mark IV bought the property which, at the time, was partially outside of the village. At Corby’s urging, village officials annexed the property in 2008 and rezoned it from commercial to residential use. Commercial use would have generated far more traffic than residential, Corby says. And if Mark IV built retail at the site, it could have pulled customers away from Main Street, Schoen Place, and Northfield Common businesses, he says. The annexation was a sound decision, says Pierson, who wasn’t on the board at the

Freed has run for trustee before and operates a villagewide e-mail newsletter.

staffer for three years and over the summer started working in the county’s Law Department. Linares and Buck have the Conservative line, too. All four trustee candidates say that the Westport Crossing proposal in its current form is not a good fit with the village. They say they’d like to see a smaller project and that the scale and mass of the proposed buildings needs to be addressed.

Dining fried tofu, broccoli florets, and cabbage — napa, bok choy, and shredded white cabbage are all represented here. How you combine these ingredients is entirely up to you. You could make a meal of just the starter plate, but you’ll be so much happier if you select a couple of items from the voluminous menu. The cute rolls of fatty beef, still frozen and sliced so thin you could probably read through them, are a must, as are the shrimp dumplings. More advanced eaters could go for any of several sorts of fish, beef in various forms, or, for the “Fear Factor” touch, cubes of congealed pork blood (milder than it sounds). And don’t forget the noodles. There are pages and pages to choose from, but the dainty bundles of translucent yam noodles were a stand-out favorite for both flavor and ease of retrieval from the bubbling cauldron.

Yummy Garden Hot Pot 2411 W. HENRIETTA ROAD 368-9888, YUMMYGARDENRESTAURANT.COM MONDAY-THURSDAY 11 A.M.-10 P.M.; FRIDAY-SATURDAY 11 A.M.-11 P.M.; SUNDAY NOON-9:30 P.M.
The northwest corner of Henrietta is fast becoming the most interesting culinary destination in Monroe County. The Great Recession raked the retail stores and restaurants of this area particularly hard, offering opportunities to those with big dreams and modest budgets in search of cheap rents and a captive audience of students and faculty from the two universities that bookend the area. The “L” defined by West Henrietta and Jefferson roads heading down toward R.I.T. is full of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Indian restaurants and grocery stores, many of them of relatively new provenance. Something pretty striking is happening in Henrietta, and so it makes sense that you’d find one of the most intriguing restaurants in the area right at its epicenter — at the intersection of West Henrietta and Crittenden roads.
Although it opened in August 2010, Yummy Garden Hot Pot — the first sit-down restaurant in a mini-chain of Yummy Garden take-outs scattered throughout the city — still has the cachet of newness to it. The place is spotlessly clean, the decorations fresh looking, the soundtrack replete with contemporary Chinese warbling. Bustling, but not ear-splittingly noisy, Yummy Garden is instantly welcoming and fun. It’s as good a place to bring a group of friends for a boisterous dinner as it is to bring your family for a walk on the wild side of Chinese food. What Yummy Garden is not, though, is a date restaurant. Of necessity, the tables are huge — at least 4’ across — making an intimate tete-a-tete impossible unless you are gifted at napkin semaphore. But you need all that space to accommodate the huge quantity of food that you’ll be dealing with. Start with a bubble tea or a beer and peruse the menus. You could order typical American-style Chinese food, you could get a bowl of Vietnamese pho, or order up Thai curries (the yellow-red-green trinity is here). But one look at your table should bring you back to your senses: you came to Yummy Garden for hot pot. Get a couple of appetizers to whet your appetite. The steamed pork-belly buns and the
sliced-beef pancake are both good choices, the latter containing lovingly braised beef tendon and flank with shredded carrot, cilantro, and a drizzle of hoisin wrapped in a “pancake” closely resembling a buttery croissant squashed in a panini press. If you are really feeling adventurous, you might want to consider braised chicken feet with pickled peppers, or a spicy salad of sliced beef and tripe, or even some crunchy beef tendon served cold in chili oil and Szechuan peppercorns. This isn’t your typical Chinese restaurant. Hot pot is the Chinese version of fondue, and normally this do-it-yourself exercise in creative cooking is a collaborative affair. Diners put bits of meat, veg, and noodles into a communal pot full of boiling broth and then scoop them out onto their own plates, the broth getting richer and denser as the meal progresses. Things are a bit different at Yummy Garden. Here, each diner gets his or her own pot of broth along with a tray full of veggies and whatever sides you choose to order. Each of the starter plates comes with an egg, an ear of corn, some mushrooms, a couple of fish balls, a small stack of sliced rice cake, a skewer with a couple of squares of
The stuff you put in your personal hot pot is pretty mild. The flavor comes from the broth, which ranges from the completely tame chicken broth enriched with onion, sesame seed, and Chinese dates (also known as jujubes) to the pleasantly medicinal “healthy herbs” broth full of goji berries and angelica root (excellent for fighting colds), to spicy-tangy pots full of tom-yum soup or, my favorite, the fiery “spicy” broth. At full boil, a pot of spicy broth — the surface slick with chili oil, the depths murky and clouded with garlic, Szechuan peppercorn, and a host of other spices I couldn’t easily identify — looked not unlike the caldera of a volcano. The broth infuses everything it touches, adding a peppery bite to even the most mundane ingredients. The broth, though, is only half the story. For a bit more flavor visit the “sauce bar,” a long counter covered with containers full of chili oil, soy sauce, oyster sauce, fermented bean paste, red vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, scallions, garlic, chopped fresh chilis and other delights. Select one of the premixed sauces or concoct your own, altering spicy, salty, sweet, and sour to fit your own tastes. Better yet, make a couple of different sauces to take back to your table, allowing you to experiment even more with the effect of subtle changes on the dishes you create. Above all, lunch or dinner at Yummy Garden is an experience to be savored and necessarily lingered over. Invite friends, order that second beer, ask for more food than you think you will need, and settle in for an evening’s adventure.

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
Rochester Chamber Orchestra
Out at Lovin’ Cup, the patrons taste their beer, they don’t just guzzle it. On Wednesday, February 13, the crowd of beer aficionados shunned the Bud and wrapped their buds around some tasty Smutty Nose treats to the solid strains of some sweet jazz. While all this tasting and testifying was going on, trombonist/ composer/Rochester ex-pat Nick Finzer set brassy, icy fire to the bandstand with his quintet. Finzer and his fine five took to the stage and launched head-first into Finzer’s own “Alternate Agenda,” a snappy modal exploration off his debut, “Exposition,” and colored just a wee bit outside the lines, with everyone in the locally assembled group getting a turn with the crayons. Finzer — also known for his pedalenhanced slide wizardry with the Po Boys Brass Band — is a traditionalist in that he follows in the footsteps of quintets led by the likes of Curtis Fuller and Benny Golson, but also acts as a pioneer by following non-standard arrangements with a dash of impressive dexterity and a smirk. That’s how we keep it new, kids.
Music offers a special program of the “Mystery Sonatas” of Franz Ignaz Biber, depicting the lives of Christ and the Virgin Mary. The 15 sonatas in the group are also thought to reflect the “15 Mysteries of the Rosary,” causing the work also to be referenced as the “Rosary Sonatas.” Pegasus Artistic Director Deborah Fox says that the “Mystery Sonatas” can be heard as a religious meditation as well as a tour-de-force for the violinist, and points out that each of the 15 sonata uses the violin in a different tuning. At the violin will be Elizabeth Wallfisch, recently appointed as director of baroque programmes with the Israel Chamber Orchestra. — BY PALOMA CAPANNA

Friday night was downright regal at The Auditorium Theatre at the 70’s Soul Jam starring Philly sensations, The Stylistics. It was a day-glow zoot suit riot and lots of size 14 gals buttered up and shoehorned into size 5 dresses. I swear to God, I saw one cat dressed like a king in all-white fur and platform heels that had goldfish swimming in them. Though not all original, The Stylistics brought their vocal soul and the house down with the hits like my personal fave, “You Are Everything.” I would have loved to have seen the band pull it off street-corner style and a cappella. You know they could. Later that night, me and my rejuvenated soul made our way back to Lovin’ Cup to catch The Swooners as this unassuming trio swung like a junior Rat Pack. The drummer was MIA so the bassist played a box with snares on it as the piano strolled the bottom end. The group swung the standards as if drunk on Slim Gaillard atomic cocktails, digging into Gershwin and Charles, et al.

Music The band has had its share of tough times.
We started the band and it seemed like everything was crashing around us. We went to Europe and lost a bunch of money. Everyone that signed up with the band was like, “Hey, we’re gonna make it big, we’ve got the guy from Korn.” But that wasn’t the case?
No. We hit the road and not much money was coming in. One of our guys went through a serious break up with his girl, and a lot of the emotional problems I went through. I’ve struggled with depression. It just seemed like everything was against us for years and now things are opening up to where we’re having a better time. But don’t all the bad times make for good material?
Yeah, dude. That’s the whole thing. These songs on the new record are about walking through a bunch of crap and staying positive getting to the other side.
The band Love and Death features Brian “Head” Welch, formerly of Korn. The band balances more melodic songs with Welch’s signature thrashing guitar licks. PHOTO PROVIDED

In its mid- to late 90’s prime, Bakersfield, California’s Korn helped forge the nu-metal genre by not only incorporating its heaviest and loudest aspects but also going outside — way outside — to untapped sources like hip-hop and electronic music. The band became huge and earned Grammy Awards in the process. At the very heart of this band and this new genre was guitarist Brian “Head” Welch, ranked No. 26 in Guitar World’s list of the 100 greatest heavy metal guitar players of all time. Welch’s penchant for savage distortion and exploratory use of effects pedals bridged Korn’s gap between metal and the great unknown. Welch split with Korn in 2005 and went on to perform his own heavy and sometimes Christian-oriented music. He released “Save Me From Myself” in 2008 under his own name. His touring band was eventually named 14 CITY FEBRUARY 20-26, 2013
Love and Death. Love and Death was initially plagued with showbiz, emotional, and personal problems. But Welch and the band persisted. Now with a new album, “Between Here and Lost,” just released in January 2013, a balance between secular and Christian music, and an apparent burying of the hatchet between Welch and Korn, things are looking up. Welch called to discuss the balance between melody and chaos, getting stuck in Eastern Europe, and getting back with his former Korn mates. Here’s an edited transcript of what he said: CITY: “Between Here and Lost” just dropped a few weeks ago. How is it doing? Brian Welch: Dude, this is the album I’ve
been waiting for for about eight years. When I left Korn, I was wanting to do a different kind of music. So I did my first solo album, “Save Me From Myself,” and it was kind of the beginning of the music I wanted to do, but I just couldn’t get there yet.
How’d you develop as a guitar player? What are some of your early influences?
I started playing guitar when I was 10 years old. I remember listing to Queen on 8-track tape. I wanted to be a drummer after hearing that, but my dad talked me into guitar. I started getting into AC/DC, Randy Rhoads, then Motley Crue, Ratt, Van Halen — all the stuff that was out then. Then Metallica came out with “Master of Puppets,” Faith No More… Korn was influenced from all that — from Nine Inch Nails, Faith No More, Sepultura, even hip-hop like Cypress Hill. Throw that all in the pile and that’s what influenced me. Any new influences sneaking in?
More electronic stuff, and melody. Bands like Red are a bit of an influence. Or Breaking Benjamin; I love the melody they bring out. Is it difficult to balance melody and your crushing guitar sound?
That’s the key. It comes pretty natural. Are you still active with your Christian ministry and music?
Yeah. I still speak to groups. But this year is going to be more mainstream. Mostly mainstream, but some Christian as well. We’ve got a tour coming up with Korn, and we’ve booked some shows with In This Moment.
Did you need to separate yourself more from Korn first in order for this band to fly?
You recently joined Korn on stage. Have you guys kissed and made up?
Not really. I just really like melody and as a band now we go to melodies that are a bit softer. We wanted to come out with a unique sound and I think we achieved that. When I started Love and Death, these musicians helped me get to where I needed to be.
Perhaps a reunion?
Yeah, after eight years. It totally feels like it’s meant to be and we’re just going to go for it.
We’ll see what happens…

CLASSICAL | EASTMAN HORN CHOIR
POST-ROCK | ALBERTO ALASKA
Let the sound of brass awaken your soul. The 26-member Eastman Horn Choir will perform this Sunday at the historic St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church. Founded in 1968, the Eastman Horn Choir places emphasis on Renaissance music, but also encourages modern composers to write new works for multiple horns. “Eastman at St. Michael’s” is a series of monthly recitals on the fourth Sunday of the month. Each concert is followed by a reception. The musicians then perform during the mass that follows. Upcoming concerts include the Eastman Student String Quartet (March 24), Friends of Eastman Opera Competition 2012 Winners (April 28), and organist Michael Unger (May 26).
Where in the world is Alberto Alaska? On Friday evening, you can catch this wintry five-piece at its “True North” EP release party at Lovin’ Cup. The Fredonia/Rochester-based group creates a meltdown of atmosphericand progressive styles that’s typical of the post-rock genre. Alberto Alaska is a young band that can build a song into a hazy climax and burn it with a mid-tempo groove. The guitars, the rhythm section, the vocals, and the harmonies add to the ambience. This band is neither hard nor heavy nor wrong. It’s like a wall-of-sound with chops on the side. With Barbarossa and There I Say Is Lightning.

The souls of artists and philosophers are never still; their vigilant senses are buffeted by the urgently calling winds and tides of change that they often detect before others. As such, some artists serve as the most honest of social critics. The current exhibit filling the South, Annex, and Brackett Clark galleries of George Eastman House is a photographic installation by Los Angeles artist Lauren Bon and her Metabolic Studio Optics Division. The project links ravaged lands in Southern California with the historic photographic industry of Rochester, as they are connected by the resources of silver and water. In the 1800’s, westward expansion in the United States was underwritten with the promise of silver (and other prized minerals) being mined in the California hills and mountains, some of which was used to save the ailing U.S. economy. Some of that silver was used in the development of film at Eastman Kodak in Rochester, before it was shipped back west to help build the emerging Hollywood industry. “In the great American West, photography found a perfect subject: vast spaces and uncharted vistas were recorded in grains of silver,” says Bon in a provided statement. “In the form of postcards, broadsides, and railway brochures, each 18 CITY FEBRUARY 20-26, 2013

from the fountain of resources located nearby. Just as Rochester’s boomtown status was due to the river and waterfall that we now often take for granted, L.A.’s existence is owed not only to the silver screen, but also to the water running through the L.A. Aqueduct, drawn from many miles away. But as resources deplete, lands are left ravaged, and technology leads us in new directions, we stand between the thin vein of the known past and the wideopen mouth of the deep unknown. Since late 2010, Bon and her team — including artists and technicians Josh White, Rich Nielsen, Tristan Duke, and Guy Hatzvi — have returned to the relevant sites of this story of silver and water to bear witness to abandoned and used-up resources. They have traveled from the desiccated Owens Valley, formerly the site of the lake from which L.A. drew its water; to Rochester, where the silver was turned into photographic material; to Manhattan, America’s financial artery; and to Washington D.C., where flags are flown above forsaken soldiers. The Eastman House exhibition includes 18 large-scale photographic prints produced in these locations by Bon and the Metabolic Studio Optics Division, one video of a 16mm film, and one installation of two negatives immersed in water that Bon says will transform over the course of the exhibition. The prints are a product of the Liminal Camera, a gigantic pinhole device made out of a 20-foot-long shipping container. The camera is aptly named in that it not only documents relevant spaces on the threshold of a new trajectory, but in that it is a device that the crew actually trucks around the country,
encounter five mammoth prints. The haunting works depict idyllic, rolling hills and railway tracks along the New York waterway. In the center of the room is an installation of two negative prints immersed in a shallow bed of water held by 2”x4”s and a sheet or black plastic. Bon and her team brought the Liminal Camera to Rochester in October 2011 to photograph Kodak while it was declaring bankruptcy. The double negative immersed in water is an image of a chemical processing plant, part of which is no longer standing. “During the life of this exhibition, we will be re-mining the silver from this image,” says Bon. Returning visitors will notice minute changes in the paper as the emulsion loosens, disintegrates, and the image begins to change. “You’ll start to see the component parts of photography as elements, suspended in silver and water,” she says. The team will return to Rochester in May, when the tiny “pond” has completely dried out, and make a contact positive from this work as a performance component of the piece. The ritualized activity seeks to serve as a “catharsis in the house itself,” says Bon, at a time when photography must move into the next phase of development. The print will hang at Eastman House in May, and silver will be mined from the bath and reused. Bon and her team are interested in the reinvention of what photography can be in the rapidly changing commercial photographic world, which leaves the field open for a redefinition in the face of digital, she says. The action echoes the team’s work in California. In the Brackett Clark Gallery hang images of the dry Owens lakebed, with
Shoot Out,” the film currently showing in the Annex Gallery, Bon realized that her interest was shifting from filmmaking to the process of making film. The artist and her team have taken over the silos at the Pittsburgh Plate Glass company on the dry Owens lakebed, and have begun to excavate their own materials for making film using silver from the abandoned mine and sourcing gelatin from the bones of deceased ranch animals. Bon is making prints of the desiccated landscape using materials from the landscape itself. Liminal prints of artificial waterways on both coasts are included, contrasting the L.A. Aqueduct pipeline as if it were already a ruin, says Bon, and the Erie Canal, both markers of human industry and need, which act as visual white noise cutting across the spaces between settlements. These are our Egypt, says Bon. On the other side of a dividing wall, images of the destroyed California landscape reveal a dusty terrain, which has created airborne toxins that prompted a the enforcement of federal air quality regulations to refill part of the Owens lake. Bon also indexed this pitiful and nearly abandoned project in a print that reveals a sad, swirling mess of shallow silica sludge. But the wreckage of civilization can become a playground for geniuses and artists, and we need it to be. “Silver and Water” continues the legacy of reinventing landscapes from the industrial ashes begun with her “Not a Cornfield” project, which sought to reimagine and repurpose a 32-acre industrial brownfield in the historic center of L.A., and was exhibited at Eastman House in 2007. continues on page 26

COMEDY | RON WHITE
There’s only one drink that’s appropriate to have before (or during) this comedy show: scotch. Texas-born comedian Ron White famously downs a few glasses of his favorite drink during all of his stand-up sets — sometimes while making his way through a cigar, too. But drinks and smokes aside, White is also famous for his appearances on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour with Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy and Bill Engvall, as well as his own career as a Grammy Award-nominated comedian and New York Times best-selling author.

KIDS | BLACK HISTORY MONTH FAMILY DAY
Each February, area organizations and institutions offer opportunities to learn more about African-American culture and history through various programs held throughout the month. Visit our online calendar at rochestercitynewspaper. com for more related events, and learn about the black experience the rest of the year by reading James Baldwin’s magnificently articulate writings, or by listening to the fiery, soul-rending prose of Gil Scott-Heron and Amiri Baraka. On Sunday, February 24, from noon to 5 p.m., visit the Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave.) with the kids for a Black History Month Family Day. The theme this year is “Reflections on Freedom,” and the event will include guided art activities, musical performances, dance performances, and tours with special cultural highlights within the museum’s collection. These include “Freedom: A Tour of African and African American Art,” remarks on the Emancipation Proclamation by Dr. David Anderson, the “ABCs of AfroRochester Black History” by Kuumba Consultants, a Freedom in Dance Showcase (pictured: University of Rochester group Ma’Frisah), and a jazz concert with Jimmie Highsmith Jr. Admission is a suggested donation of $5 per family, and includes access to the museum.

RECREATON | NORDIC HOT DOG DAYS
The Genesee Valley Nordic Ski Patrol is a group of volunteers who spend every weekend monitoring the Rochester Museum and Science Center’s Cumming Nature Center to ensure the safety of skiers.

Hot dogs, chili, cookies, brownies, hot cider, and other delectables will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 23, and Sunday, February 24. The event is free for RMSC members, and there is a requested donation of $3 per person and $10 per family. There are additional charges for the food.

THEATER | “ROMANCE”
All is fair in love and war…and comedy, actually. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet’s “Romance” is a courtroom comedy that satirizes each character, from lawyers and judges, to Arabs and Jews, to gays and chiropractors. An anti-histamine-popping judge gets doped up on his own medicine, and law and order wither away into utter chaos while he hears the testimonies of a Jewish chiropractor, who squabbles with his anti-Semitic defense attorney, and a gay prosecutor who squabbles with his lover, all the while, a Middle East peace conference is taking place. On Thursday, February 21, at 7:30 p.m. Limelight Productions will present “Romance” at MuCCC (142 Atlantic Ave.). The show will continue through March 1, with 7:30 p.m. shows on Thursdays through Saturdays, and a 2 p.m. matinee show on Sunday, February 24. Tickets are $16 in advance ($14 for seniors and students), $20 at the door ($18 for seniors and students), and February 21 will be a pay-what-you-will performance.

McClane eventually outwits, outraces, and outcrashes the bad guys and catches up with his son, who turns out to be a CIA agent on a mission to extract Komarov from the country and recover an important secret file. From that point Jack and John fight a continuous gun battle with Komarov’s enemies, who also want the file. The innumerable shootouts culminate in a confrontation at Chernobyl, a location so toxic it should make all the combatants glow in the dark (none do, alas). Throughout the nonstop action John and Jack survive a truly remarkable, not to say preposterous, variety of violent assaults. They shoot thousands of bullets against the bad guys with an array of automatic weapons that would inspire any NRA stalwart to weep with envy, endure a vicious beating, escape several huge explosions, shoot down a helicopter gunship, fall off a couple of buildings, and undergo several spectacular defenestrations. In the midst of all the mayhem a couple of relatively perfunctory personal stories develop. One concerns the apparently difficult relationship between father and son — Jack blames John for his lifelong absenteeism and neglect, a problem John strives to repair with his actions, advice, and a string of unfunny wisecracks. The other, also parental, involves Komarov and his lovely daughter Irina (Yuliya

Magic kingdom [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
“Beautiful Creatures” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY RICHARD LAGRAVENESE NOW PLAYING
Snigir), who together create a doublecross followed by a triplecross, all based on a McGuffin right out of Hitchcock. In a movie like “A Good Day to Die Hard” nobody surely cares terribly deeply about the quality of the performances. The cast behaves in a generally unexceptionally straightforward manner, modestly occupying second place behind the pyrotechnics and bloodshed. One actor, Rasha Bukvic, plays a major villain in a somewhat eccentric manner, doing a little tap dance before beating the McClanes with a gun butt and regretting that he never became a hoofer — very sad. The real stars of such a picture are the stuntmen and stuntwomen, who in this case number in the scores in the credits, and the folks who rig the explosions and car crashes. Bruce Willis, recently decorated by the French government by the way, does his usual and by now tiresome, offhand oneliners, delivered in his weak, whispery voice; he at least underlines the notion that the picture is actually a kind of comedy, almost a parody of its particular series. Further, his presence reminds us of how much contemporary cinema owes him — he actually created the figure of the short, muscular, tough, shaven-headed action hero. Without Bruce Willis, like it or not, there would be no Vin Diesel or Jason Statham, for example, and maybe even no Daniel Craig. As a Hemingway character says, fix yourself on that.
With the “Twilight” series mercifully at an end — though there are already murmurings about a possible reboot — movie studios are scrambling to recapture the attentions of those film’s audiences, raiding bookstore shelves and snatching up anything with the words “supernatural” and “love story” on the dust jacket. Warner Bros.’ Southern Gothic romance, “Beautiful Creatures,” adapted from the popular youngadult book series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, has the benefit of being one of the first out of the gate. And, thanks largely to two charming lead actors, they could have done a lot worse. Sensitive, bookish jock Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich) is desperate to get away from his small South Carolina hometown and its narrow-minded, Bible-thumping inhabitants. For weeks he’s been haunted by dreams of a mysterious girls whose face is never visible. Then one day pale, beautiful outsider Lena (Alice Englert)

appears in his life, having just moved to town with her protective uncle, Macon (a scenery-chomping Jeremy Irons). Lena’s an outcast in the town due to her family ties, but Ethan is drawn to her and they strike up a romantic relationship, bonding over their shared love of banned books and Charles Bukowski. Their love is complicated by the fact that Lena and her family turn out to be “casters” (read: witches, though Lena explains that that term is just a label, like geek or jock, created by mortals who don’t understand her kind). To make matters worse, Lena is also facing “The Claiming,” a rite of passage young female casters face on their 16th birthday in which their souls are claimed for the light or the dark (good or evil). Why exactly these young women have no choice in the matter is something that may have been spelled out (no pun intended) in the novel, but the screenplay (credited to director Richard LaGravanese) can’t be bothered to get into specifics. The film never explains the mechanics of these customs, and those details are crucial. Without them, the story’s many prophecies and curses verge on incomprehensible. Naturally, this impending event forces Lena to push Ethan away, afraid that she’ll end up destroying him if she goes all evil. LaGravanese is clearly more at home with the teen romance side of the story than the supernatural elements, which makes sense considering his filmography, which includes “P.S. I Love You” as well as the scripts for previous high-minded literary love stories like “The Bridges of Madison County,” “The Horse Whisperer,” and “Water For Elephants”. He’s aided by the performances of Ehrenreich and Englert, who have great chemistry together and charisma to spare. Their shared scenes are without
a doubt the strongest in the film. I’m curious to see what projects they choose to attach themselves to in the future. Whenever LaGravanese has to get into the witchcraft aspects of the story, the film is markedly less successful, relying on CGI effects as a stand-in the supernatural elements of the plot. While the effects are sometimes impressive, they’re no substitute for decent storytelling. The film’s vine-obsessed production design (by Richard Shermann, who previously worked on both installments of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”), however, is occasionally quite striking, especially the decrepit mansion owned by Lena’s family, with its Southern plantation exterior and an interior that suggests Tim Burton by way of Ikea. LaGravanese is smart enough to round out the supporting cast with several legitimately great actors; in addition to Irons, the cast includes Viola Davis and Emma Thompson. Their performances in the film are hardly going to make any career highlight reels, but they don’t do anything to embarrass themselves. Thompson in particular, playing Seraphine, the most powerful dark caster in all the land (who just so happens to be Lena’s mother), is clearly having a ball. She hams it up masterfully, bringing a mischievous sense of fun to the role that’s sorely lacking from the rest of the film, which has a tendency to take itself way too seriously. In a film about a lovestruck teen witch, that’s a deadly characteristic to have. Still, I was never bored, which is more than can be said for most of the “Twilight” films. The ending leaves itself open for a sequel, and with three more books in the series, the fate of the potential franchise rests entirely in how hungry teenage girls are for another fix of paranormal romance.

“LA Aqueduct, Jawbone Junction 2, June 11, 2011” is included in the current show at Eastman House. PHOTO BY LAUREN BON AND THE METABOLIC STUDIO
As time moves forward, the artist and her team unravel more and more connections between our use and abuse of vital resources. Bon has found more links between silver and water as chemotherapy treatments for industrycreated cancers that plague humanity. She connects our misuse of natural resources to our abuse of another powerful American resource: the members of the military who are forgotten by the nation. Bon’s interest in the plight of veterans is documented in prints that record the symbolic raising of a giant flag on Veterans Day, and the demolition of a building at Soldier’s Home in D.C., caught by the Liminal Camera in the moment when a fallen wall reveals an old silver screen within the structure. Bon believes that in the future, the reason for Rochester’s original boom will make it a crucial place once again. But our nearby river and lake are currently polluted, and the energy-gathering infrastructure at High Falls, which has such potential for our city, has been sold to a foreign company. We stand in dubious territory, amid silver-tongued bureaucratic battles over regional fracking, and whether Rochester might store that process’s wastewater in our own waterways. Artists such as Bon prompt us to question the value of moving forward with short-sighted industries, and to ask who the beneficiaries are in the short and long runs.

20 Seneca Parkway Enter the glass paneled vestibule of 20 Seneca Parkway to a shower of light. Southern exposure brings a sunny glow to the living room on the right and the dining room and solarium on the left. The resulting panorama is an open, cozy first floor full of period detail, extraordinary woodwork, and livable spaces. After marveling at inlaid floors as far as the eye can see, look up at the plaster grapevine relief outlining the living room ceiling. A neutral beige embossed wallpaper draws the eye to the nine-foot ceiling and detailed crown molding. Both the living room and master bedroom have wood-burning fireplaces with handsome wood surrounds. Two steps down from the living room is a den. Many of the interior doors bear interesting marquetry inserts, just one of many intricate details. The large central foyer is lined with picture frame molding that extends up the wide formal staircase. A white tile powder room is under the stairs. The kitchen is large and features – miraculously! – the original kitchen and pantry cabinetry. Rear doors lead to the backyard and three-bay garage. Also off the kitchen are basement stairs, back stairs to the second floor and a separate entrance for the third floor apartment. The pantry leads to the generous dining room, off of which is the solarium with an ornate mosaic tile floor and windows on three sides. This room calls for iced tea and a good book in every season.
Venerable old-house features like pocket doors (that work!), milk box, ice delivery door, laundry shoot, marble stairs, glass doorknobs, some button light switches, and dramatic leaded glass windows, are trumped by a vast amount of closet and storage space, basement and second floor laundry, large Jack and Jill bath and huge master bedroom. The other three bedrooms are charming and light-filled. The home’s interior is beautiful and the exterior striking. The red tile roof and brick exterior are framed by mature weeping cherry trees. The fully-fenced backyard features a fine perennial garden. Located in the Maplewood National Register Historic District, new owners would be eligible for New York State Historic Homeowner tax credits. Many neighborhood residents have employed these credits to help restore their homes to their original glory. Just up the street from 20 Seneca Parkway are Sacred Heart Cathedral, the Maplewood Rose Garden, Aquinas Institute and the Maplewood YMCA. Downtown Rochester, Frontier Field and Sahlen’s Stadium are five minutes south; Lake Ontario is 10 minutes north; and the Genesee River is a block away. For more information on this stunning property visit rochestercityliving.com/property/R201566 or contact Susan Kachurak of Nothnagle Realtors, 585 472-4373. 20 Seneca Parkway has 3700 square feet and is listed at $189,900. by Elizabeth Teall.
