Like all cities, Rochester New York has a lot of history. Some big time companies were founded and started here. Kodak, Xerox, Bausch & Lomb, for starters. And behind these big companies were many men and women from many parts of the world.

Just recently, Rochester took a look at some of the areas of the city where immigrants settled. It goes without saying, people settle within their own when moving abroad.
See enclosed News10NBC link above.
In this article Rochester is looking at the northwest side of the city, the Lyell Avenue corridor. Many Italians settled in this area back in the day.
This week starting tomorrow, 8/7/2017, city employees will be putting up markers along the avenue.
Also, a Rochester graffiti artist painted this mural right at the intersection of Lyell and Lake.
