This is Rochester

Stories From the City We Love


January/February 2016: Watercolor artist Andrea Durfee, Actor Robert Forster, and Jeff Tyzik. Studio 678 Photography Club, Mesmerizing ceramics from Peter Pincus, Bonsai Trees from Bill Valavanis, and handcrafted goods from Matt Wittmeyer and Catherine Costanza. We talk with Erica Fee, Mark Iacona, Larry Moss, Mary Therese Friel, and Mark Cuddy. We ask Rochester "What is your favorite movie?" and hear the stories behind Rochesterians' tattoos. Dan Martello shows us a modern BLT with a side of cauliflower soup, we learn the secrets behind Kate Schlenker's pot pies, and we visit Rochester's iconic Fox's Deli. Finally, we ask "Is Hunger the root of Rochester's problems?"
