During our primary ballot, we asked, "What is your favorite thing in Rochester and why?" and we got a lot of great answers. Here are our top five reader submissions.
"My favorite thing is Wegmans. I moved back here from Denver to be near Wegmans. I left my boyfriend for Wegmans."
"Rexpo: Species diversity, they got it. For herpers, by herpers."
"That it is small enough to go anywhere and run into an old friend and large enough to go anywhere and make a new friend."
"I love Rochester's history and what seems to be a percolating comeback story underfoot. I love that it's small enough that I can make a real difference and cultivate a valuable network, and big enough that I feel connected to the world."
"My favorite thing in Rochester is the mega-flock of crows that comes through every fall and how [upset] everyone gets about trying to chase them off when they always leave on their own after a few months."
