Rochester is sadly now a city of used-to-be.
It used to be a safe place to shop at Midtown Mall.
(downtown is no longer very safe after dark for many areas)
(Midtown Mall is only a ghost of what it once was).
It used to be a happening to shop at Sibleys.
(the store closed and the company moved).
It used to be the home of great companies like Kodak.
(the company is still here but no longer great).
It used to be a place where the rich built fine homes.
(the rich have moved to the suburbs).
It used to be a fine urban community. But now the downtown area
is a littered street with panhandlers and closed shops where you
put two hands on your wallet or purse.
Rochester used to be a place I was proud to call hometown.
