Rochester, NY

Last November I went to Rochester, New York for the first time and I've been wanting to go back ever since. I love this city. It's got natural beauty, architectural beauty, and murals and graffiti galore. I finally got my chance to go back to Rochester and even though I visited a lot of the same places that I did on my first trip, it was still worth the five hour drive. 

Our first stop was of course the abandoned Rochester subway. The problem was there were workers down there, so not knowing exactly how relaxed the city is about people trespassing in the tunnels we decided to stay in the shadows and then return later that day for a more thorough trip through the graffiti covered underground.

Kaylah and I adding to our collection of non-traditional photos together.

Mural on an abandoned silo.

The climb down to the river was rough, the climb back up was even rougher; but the reward of an old power plant next to a waterfall next to a cave, made it worth it.

Looking into the cave which appears to be man-made.

Our next stop was a bridge.

One of my all time favorite graffiti artists, ROA, has several pieces in Rochester.
