Like most of the country, we had an abnormally warm stretch in March, and I got out for a walk around the Erie Canal in Pittsford one Sunday. Here are some of the pictures. There are a lot of beautiful buildings in the little town, and as the trees come into flower and leaf it will be even more pretty!
By comparison, I went to pick someone up on RIT’s campus a couple of weeks ago, and driving through the area around the campus, I understood suddenly why Dessau (in former East Germany) seemed like such a great place to live by comparison. That’s how bad the area around RIT looked to me! Collapsing buildings, shacks, strip-mall shopping along huge polluted roads, a very dirty river… Needless to say, I’m much happier living in Pittsford.
