Nice architecture but terrible streetscape

There are some beautiful buildings in downtown Rochester. And the Genesee River runs right through downtown. And yet to be downtown is somewhat unpleasant. This streetscape is totally lacking. There are lots of parking lots and buildings with no commercial on the ground floor, which means that you can walk for blocks without passing anything in particular. There seem to be no coffee shops, no grocery stores and no place to shop at all in fact. It’s a bit tragic.
