We are joining up with the Rochester Museum and Arts group on this fun tour. Thanks to Cookie and Nan for welcoming us. Here is the info:

Cutting edge lofts in re-purposed spaces; historic homes renovated for a 21st century lifestyle; lovingly preserved work or home sites; newly built sites that harmonize with their historic neighborhoods. These are the types of spaces we visit on the Inside Downtown Tour. What started 8 years ago as a focus on places within the Inner Loop has expanded to any urban environment where people are creating exciting spaces to live and work.

Your ticket admits you to all these places, plus gives special discounts at businesses in the area. Advance prices are $17 for Landmark members, $22 for non-members. If tickets are available the days of the tour, they will be $25 for all. The tour is self-guided, with hosts at each location.

    I enjoyed the tour and meeting new people. With such a large group for this event it was hard to stay together and talk with others.

    I enjoyed the day. I was surprised that there weren't more high end, sophisticated lofts or apartments.

    Very interesting to me. All these wonderful lofts hidden in city buildings.

    Hey everyone -- bad timing, I'm not going to be able to meet up and do the tour with you all today! 10 dinner guests tonight and I'm just not ready. :-( I do hope to be able to dash down and do the tour before 4 pm today, though, since I already bought my ticket.

    I do look forward to meeting you all at some future event. Enjoy!!

    Hi everyone- I just wanted to make sure everyone that is planning on going Saturday has gotten their ticket ahead of time. You save $3 by getting them at Parkleigh, calling or going online to the Landmark Society. Also thanks to Cindy for her message. Be sure to stop by the headquarters on the 2nd level of Village Gate before meeting at Dark Horse to get a list of places offering discounts. Our group will be leaving right around 11:30 so please plan to get there a few minutes before. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Hello folks - I and the Director of Public Programs at The Landmark Society, manager of the Inside Downtown Tour.

    I want to make sure you stop at tour headquarters on the 2nd level of Village Gate BEFORE you meet at Dark Hours Cafe - get a list of places offering discounts when you show your tour ticket! (hint: Dark Horse is one of them!) Also - the tour ends at 4 pm, not at 4:30 on Saturday. Tour hours are 11 am to 4 pm. Hope you enjoy - it's a great tour!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
