The ever interesting and keen Kent Gardner reports on how the Rochester economy has fared in recent years as compared to the rest of NY and the country. The answer? Surprisingly, perhaps, is really well! Click through for some data – the important lesson is that unlike in the past, modern Rochester is a well diversified city that has opportunities in a wide variety of industries from the glamorous to the unglamorous, and that there seems to be opportunity for people with a wide variety of backgrounds. I intend to write more about Rochester in the future.
