HAHA I loved this. The movie was horrible. It was painful to watch although the occassional familiar glimpse of the city was nice

This is probably the most popular, largest, and the worst of all Rochester NY crimes

I saw Alphabet Killer - Eliza Dushku is hot, and the movie was not very good - felt like a made for TV thing. I kept hoping that at the end Cary Elwes would challenge whoever the killer was to a duel "to the pain".
I grew up near Northhampton Park between Brockport and Spencerport. Shawcross dumped a body or two right near there. Scary

Yeah, pretty much RenSquare would have been even worse.

Rennsquare was never a real possibility. Thank God IMO; because at least the fast ferry could be sold and floated away; that wouldn't really be a feasible option for what was planned for rensquare. Personally I think the fact that private development is picking up downtown lately anyways made the idea behind rennsquare completely pointless anyways.

Right next to the boulavard (sp) bar and across the street from the Laurelton fire department. I think there's a bingo hall there now. Same building though... My family has lived right up the street since the 40's. As a kid, I remember that happening. Not sure where Mad Dog got run off the street and into a gunfight with the PD though.

I remember as a kid in the 1970's the mob coming into my dad's resturant on East Port bay (Wolcott) and pushing their muscle around until some local bikers ran them out...

Yea, I had family that lived in the area. Older aunts and uncles used to tell me that they'd watch the cops chase mobsters from that place through their back yard(they had one of those homes on the old trolley line).
