    Well, it might have been Sunday. They roll up the sidewalks in Rochester on weekends.

    I've been on a Rochester side-walk at a weekend, there's no-one

    As I walked down East Avenue I was approached by another walker, the only one I'd seen in an hour. His first words - You must be European, you're walking where are you going Same place as him !!! He was an Italian composer/music student working on the large George Eastman music collection which is not on public display at George Eastman House.

    No, that is when the drive by shooting and car jacking takes place.

    It sounds like it has gotten a bit rougher since I moved away.

    Never thought about looking at it on one of these sites. Thanks! I have always wanted to see it. I really want to travel up there some day!

    I got a chance to drive around Kodak Park Tuesday evening. The complex was huge and the buildings much taller than I expected! While heading north on 390 I also passed a large building with a Kodak logo on it and two smokestacks in the background. I didn't get a very good look at it, but it looked to be another fairly large site as well. It looks like they turned the many areas where buildings were torn down into "green space," planting trees and grass there.

    Kodak Park was always that. Many trees and lots of grass. The demolished buildings just contribute more "parkland".

    The area from 390 with the smokestacks visible is KP West. Synthetic chemistry used to be done there as well as film support manufacture and shipping. If you had come down Ridge Road, the stacks would be on the right and you would see a big casting wheel at the edge of the property. Further east on Ridge Road, on the other side, you would see another stack. That is in the center of the main park.

    Kodak now supplies power and heat to other local industries due to the lower needs at KP itself. This was featured on TV lately.

    You were about 10 - 15 minutes south of my home.

    I did go down Ridge Rd. and then up Lake Ave. and saw the main park, but missed the casting wheel. (KP West was what I saw from the highway on my way there, but at the time I didn't know what it was called or what went on there.) It was pretty cool to be able to identify some of the buildings from the descriptions you provided (B-38, B-59, the chip making facility, and the paper mill). If I only I could have seen inside of them...
