cpclemens Don't ask me why but I'm obsessed with finding these bottle trees. There's a spiritual significance I'll be writing about on the blog this week. #art #artistic #conesuslake #explore #exploremore #explorenewyork #ExploringUpstate #flx #fingerlakes #ispyny #interesting #ilovenewyork #roadsideattractions 2d

cpclemens Beneath the Rundel Library in Rochester from earlier this week. The space was once part of a subway system in the city, and prior to that it was part of the Erie Canal! #abandoned #bestofroc #explore #exploremore #explorenewyork #explorerochester #ExploringUpstate #grime #history #historic #igers #ispyny #interesting #ilovenewyork #monroecounty #newyorkexplored #ROC #rochesterny #roctopshots 4d

cpclemens I'm honored and humbled to be the feature Time Warner Cable News story to kick off their 'explore ny' initiative this month! If you're in NY you can catch it once an hour on TV or you can watch right online. 5d

cpclemens Each Friday I put an interesting fact relative to NY state up on www.fb.com/exploringupstate I normally never share them here, but this one is particularly fun. 🏻 #facts #interesting #thesmoreyouknow 1w
  •   jeannesvoice Too funny 1w
  •   upst8nygrl1 I never knew that; so weird. 1w
  •   emruby585 That's crazy! Were the larger marshmallows taken into space? I hear anything taken into space through NASA programs is no longer taxed. Either way, weird! 1w
  •   cpclemens @emruby585 maybe they were? That's interesting fact too! The reason has to do with the fact that foods are not taxed, but the smaller ones are considered "candy" instead of food. 1w
  •   carolg1954 Unbelievable. 1w

cpclemens Searching for toys at the House of Guitars. #roc #rochesterny #roctopshots #bestofroc #explorerochester 2w
  •   eescorse I searched there today- they didn't have the album I wanted. It always seems like they have EVERYTHING except the one I want. Lol 2w
  •   krist3n @eescorse one time an employee asked if he could help me find anything and after I told him what I was interested in he started looking through literally a PILE of 7" records...we did not find the record. Plenty of other stuff to look at though nice pic @cpclemens :) 2w
  •   eescorse @krist3n it's awesome there though, just always seems funny 2w

cpclemens One of my favorite Rochester landmarks was just sold this week. The First Church of Christ, Scientist has been at East and Prince for over 100 years and will now be an opera house. This shot is from a rare opportunity I had to tour the church and was granted access above the ceiling. #bestofroc #churchesofrochester #explore #exploremore #explorenewyork #explorerochester #ExploringUpstate #history #historic #ilovenewyork #monroecounty #newyorkexplored #roc #religion #rochesterny #roctopshots #travel #upstateny 3w
  •   enviropassion This is amazing! 3w
  •   kdavisfnp Nice! 3w
  •   carolg1954 This is great. 3w
  •   aladue76 @cpclemens it's a fantastic place. My hubby is doing the work for the opera house. Very cool project. Keeping the 100 years of awesomeness alive. Happy that the congregation is happy with the project. 3w
  •   librarywonder Cool. Is there still a Christian Science community in Rochester? 2w
  •   cpclemens @librarywonder sure is. They are a small group under 100. It makes sense that they didn't want the financial burden of such a huge building. I'm pretty bummed but it makes sense. They are going to meet on Mt Hope now 2w
  •   aimeelewispr Very cool shot! 2w
  •   emruby585 amazing 2w

  •   sarah_mindfullyfrugalmom Only you could make that sound dirty 3w
  •   davevogler This is the congregation that built the Temple building downtown, right? 3w
  •   cpclemens @davevogler it is. Though, they've done quite a bit of changing since then. Checkout their website, they have a long timeline of history for their church, some of it is pretty interesting 3w

cpclemens I found this cool old token last summer at a flea market and just finally got around to tracking down its origin. Hit the link in my profile for the whole story!! #bestofroc #ExploringUpstate #explorerochester #history #historic #ilovenewyork #marketing #monroecounty #roc #rochesterny #roctopshots #antique #vintage #token 3w
  •   mandi_722 Oh wow, that was very interesting. 3w
  •   carolg1954 Very cool. 3w
  •   rendot2 That's interesting, it's weird to think that Rochester was around back then, kinda gives it some "street cred" lol 😎 3w
