Dive headfirst into Rochester's shadowy underbelly. Step, jump, crawl and spelunk your way through one of New York's most interesting urban environments. Photograph, admire, or simply stare at a wide variety of architecture, from the quite old to the surprisingly new. Contemplate the way humans build, decorate, use, reuse, abuse, and re-abuse the buildings they prop up, and meet the humans who do it.
Urban Exploring's primary purpose is to facilitate and organize outings to various locations in and around Rochester that hold particular interest in terms of historical import, community impact, and architecture. Our focus is on sites Exhibiting novel and creative use of space and/or a marked and unusual evolution of use over time. We hold weekly meetings to plan events, and embark upon periodic outings to places of interest.
