Series Zero: The Lost Borough

$27.99

Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan. Rochester?

A smaller city with a subway system is rare. Boston, NYC, Chicago, and LA all have very outreaching subway systems. Rochester is one of the smallest cities to establish an underground rail system. But the defining example of a 'Boomtown' was quite deserving, as trolleys and subway systems are a big sign of progress.

Fast forward to 1964: After President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, riots erupt amid growing racial tension and Rochester joins the fray. Civil order was restored soon after but social tensions remained throughout the city. In those sociopolitical movements grew the mentality that is very similar to that of the five boroughs.

A legal graffiti wall, a not so legal graffiti wall, a city-wide art installation of murals on buildings and public places, a devout hip hop scene rooted in the 80's and evolving into present day, and a very diverse set of neighborhoods all contribute to the nickname "Lost Borough."
