Connections: ROC the Riverway, part three

Governor Cuomo recently announced 13 projects he says will transform the Genesee River waterfront. The projects are part of the ROC the Riverway initiative, which aims to revitalize Rochester’s underutilized waterfront space.

This hour, we get an update on the initiative and its potential impact on tourism and economic investment in our area. We also take a deep dive into the projects the governor selected for state funding. In studio:

  • Anne Kress, co-chair of the ROC the Riverway Advisory Panel and president of Monroe Community College
  • Alex Yudelson, chief of staff for the City of Rochester
  • Shawn Dunwoody, member of the ROC the Riverway Advisory Panel, and local artist and entrepreneur
