I wonder if it was a matter of location or proximity, with Batavia Downs being pretty close by.

The day they put a casino in Rochester is the day this city is hopelessly, irrevocably lost.

Yeah that worked really well for Detroit....

Downtown is focusing on high-end residential and commercial development right now and is attracting working professionals to LIVE there. That is infinitely better in bringing life back into the city form the inside out than some seedy casino.

Batavia is a 2 hour drive from Rochester? I don't think so and I would think that you would know that.

Just drove by the area tonight on my way back from Toronto - it was about 40 minutes from the east side of Rochester.
