PARK(ing) Day is an annual international event held on the third Friday of September. On September 21, 2018 in downtown Rochester, NY, citizens will turn street parking spots on East Main Street into public spaces for the community to enjoy. 



Sara Jenks

Sara's favorite urban activity is one where all other participants have white hair. She also enjoys getting lost in Mt. Hope Cemetery while walking home from work. Sara dreams of opening a concept bar, Chas T. Ham's, in honor of Mt. Hope inhabitants.

Dan Speciale

Dan's favorite urban activities are taking epic 10-mile walks and answering questions no one asked about local history. He is the bicyclist you see around town screaming at bad drivers. His favorite neighborhoods are High Falls and Marketview Heights.

Carolyn Levine

Carolyn's favorite urban activity is exploring the abandoned subway. She drinks a lot of French Quarters from her neighborhood coffee joint, Fuego, and has a Leslie Knope-level of passion for parks. 

Max Akulin

Max’s favorite urban activity is to people-watch while exploring ‘third-places’ which others consider their home-away-from-home.  Over this summer, he’s going to bicycle from Buffalo to NYC along the Erie Canal and Hudson River.
