Is this area close to the nest boxes?  Will it affect Archer and Beauty or the watchers trying to park nearby?  My Rochester geography is very limited.  stupid

Dot-the 2nd picture in the article shows the nest box building on the far left...as to where exactly the digging is, I'm not clear-I think it's the other side of the river.  Parking for the watchers is going to be a challenge from what I gather. 

edit 12:16 Just looked at the map...I think I'm mistaken...the digging is behind the Times Square building a few blocks when looking at the nest box (east) side.

Parking for everyone will be a challenge.  There is still the lot directly under the nest box, and a few more surrounding it, but downtown overall has a major parking problem.

I was puzzling over the article, not knowing much Rochester history.  So I did some digging and I found this old map of Rochester on an Erie Canal history site.  Looking at the path of the canal right through the middle of downtown it now makes sense-Broad St. was constructed over the Erie Canal-the canal even crossed the Genesee right where the Broad St. bridge is currently.  I added the pink arrows along the path of the canal-the far left one is where I believe the demolition is starting.

The red star is where the Times Square building is now-corner of Exchange & Broad.  One other interesting note-a lot of the streets have new names...the lower end of State St. was Carrol St. at the time.

Did you see there was a Sulphur Bath down the street from Times Square Building?  Also noticed the Burying Ground.  Wonder if it is still there?
