This is Rochester

Stories From the City We Love


Inside July/August 2016: Wendell Castle, Carlson Cowork, and Karrie Laughton of Lux Lounge. Musings on push mowers, land mines, and life. Raising local in-season flowers, and our conversations on social media. We encounter a young heroin addict, and consider life and death on Facebook. Food: salt-crusted fish, smoke and cokesicle, the benefits of turmeric, and Giordano European Cheese Shop. Makers Jeffrey Müeller (stained glass) and Laura Seymour (Macramé).
