Get the door, it's the liquor store
If you’re looking for a Rust Belt success story, look no further than Rochester, New York. For starters, Rochester’s position gives it a bit of a scenic double whammy: it’s situated on the beautiful inland ocean that is Lake Ontario, as well as on the Genesee River that flows through... downtown. That river delivers some breathtaking drama with High Falls, which plummet 96 feet just beyond the Inner Loop bridge. These waters have dug out a canyon throughout downtown. On either side of its walls rise the nostalgic beauty of Rochester’s skyline, a mix of low-flying skyscrapers and old industrial buildings preserved in a state of antiquity. Rochester’s success is due to several factors. For one, when deindustrialization hit, big employers like Kodak and Xerox had to help it weather the storm. Secondly, it’s the third-largest city in the state, with a population of over 200,000 and nine colleges within its city limits. If you’re looking for yet another benefit of life in Rochester, try this for size: you can get beer, wine and liquor from all the local shops delivered straight to your door in 60 minutes or less. From whence spawns such sorcery? Fear not! It’s just Drizly. Just open our app or website, choose the booze of your dreams and wait for the doorbell to ring.
