A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.

Roc City Skatepark

Postby hobkyl » Fri Jun 03, 2011 8:44 am

Has anyone caught the commercial for the Roc City Skatepark? I'd like to think I watch too much tv, however I only just saw the commercial yesterday. The fundraising event is tomorrow.

Do you know of a skater/bmxer? Do you think that a park of such grand scale would make sense here?

i agree with the location. Whether or not families will take their kids there is another issue.

The town I live in put one in a few years back. It wasn't like you would see on the competions on tv but did offer many different types of quater pipes and such. It lasted about two years and without much interest they shut it down.

I kinda have the gut feeling that's exactly what will happen in Rochester. As Matt said...parents getting their kids there will be the determining factor as to if it lasts...as I don't think (could be wrong) that there is a thriving population of skaters/bmxers living in close proximity to that location.

suburban parents are deathly afraid of the city. It's a sad truth... they barely drive their kids in to see the Museum of Play.
