Albert Stone and the Public Realm

21 Stops
Duration: 02:00:00

Use this guided audio walking tour to rediscover the public realm of Rochester. Photojournalist Albert Stone, who worked for the Rochester newspapers from 1903 to 1934, artfully captured a time when we lived and worked closer to one another in a robust, bustling, energetic, and sustainable city.

The Community Design Center created this tour, narrated by Howard Decker, to explore the public life of Rochester a century ago, and inspire you to see that the best life for our city is a shared life, a common life, lived together in the public realm.
