Your Memories of Midtown
Share your memories of Midtown here as Rochester welcomes the development of a new center city.... a new Midtown.
After 40 plus years Midtown Plaza is coming down. The first in-door, urban shopping mall was much more than just a shopping experience. It was a multi-use facility combining retaiil, business, hotel and restaurants to form a community space that served Rochester for over 40 years.
Victor Gruen designed Midtown Plaza to be a meeting place for business, retail and community. Everyone remembers Magic Mountain, Santa and the monorail...do you remember science fairs, dances, political meetings and more? Tell us what you remember.
