Yeah, sad but true. Same with Flint, East St. Louis and Youngstown OH.

Also, in a country where there seems to be a decline in the sense of ccommunity to some degree, such neighborhoods can possibly bring some of that back.

There will also be a market for those that want suburbs, but I think having more dense, walkable places wouldn't hurt. You could even have communities with both some space, as well as neighborhoods with sidewalks that have parks and businesses close by.

There actually was a great article in the Syracuse Post-Standard's opinion section that discusses aspects of smart growth within cities that have worked.
Here's the article: Roberta Brandes Gratz argues for rebuilding cities eroded by 'creative shrinkage' | syracuse.com

I think even the most cynical people about Rochester can admit that there are some nice neighborhoods within the city limits. You hardly get that with the Detroit area. So, what he said has some validity to it.
Yes, and that was my point. That we DON'T want Rochester to escalate to that much of a division between the city and suburbs.

Why did you pass up that wonderful opportunities in Philly again?

To answer Harris is the biggest employer in Park Ave comment, please see the latest news in regards to Harris.

I think you owe the original poster an apology for providing such an outlook 6 years ago.

so now you are doing the poster stalking thing..... didn't you get tired of that after being banned several times over the last time you made an attempt at such behavior?
Not sure what a handful of job cuts through attrition for a defense contractor has to do with anything. That is par for the course in that field.. especially with all of the defense cuts recently.

Stalking? You were the first one reponded to my Rochester youtube thread. You could of ignore it but you had to call me a troll. I purposely setup an entertaining thread like that and hope we can all laugh to make things better. To be honest I might be able to help you with a good job position but I can't help you if you are in denial. I can't say I have a lot of connections but I promise I will do my best to help you. I have a friend who left Rochester 3 years ago for a really good job position with Boeing in PA. He is much more happy now and is willing to help a fellow from Rochester who is looking for some change. I am serious and hope you can be a bit more open minded. Btw, Philly is a good pick especially given the high cost in Boston.
