Anyone who loves downtown Rochester will be intrigued by the latest news regarding redevelopment of the city's riverway.


Gov. Andrew Cuomo was in town last week committing $50 million to the development of the Genesee River and nearby downtown attractions. Efforts to transform the riverfront include 30 potential projects. Ideals include boosting river views at Charles Carroll Park Plaza, transforming the Rochester Riverside Convention Center and turning the Broad Street aqueduct into a downtown destination.
