Perinton  Fairport  and the Erie Canal

The opening of the Erie Canal in 1825 saw the rise of western New York as the gateway to the West. The ease and economy of shipping by canal brought commerce and factories to many communities along the canal's route. Thus, the area that we now know as Fairport and Perinton boasted a disproportionate number of businesses in the mid- and late-nineteenth century. In Perinton, Fairport, and the Erie Canal, you will meet Daniel DeLand, founder of the DeLand Chemical Works which, beginning in 1852, shipped by canal hundreds of barrels of the leavening agent saleratus and baking soda to markets in New York City and the West. You will find out the secret ingredient of Taylor's Oil of Life and will read its endorsement by Buffalo Bill Cody. You will see the Main Street lift-bridge, which was cited several times in Ripley's Believe It or Not, and Cobb's Preserving Company, which experimented and promoted the solderless can that revolutionized food storage in America.

Perinton and Fairport in the 20th Century

Perinton and Fairport in the 20th Century documents the transformation of this upstate New York community into a suburban center. The change began with the arrival of a high-speed electric train in 1906. After that, the era of building and invention was under way.

The next two stories come from Fairport, New York. Originally a swampy part of Perinton, Fairport was born when the Erie Canal came through in the early 1820s. The canal drained the swamps and allowed development.

Ghosts of Genesee Country

With a psychic as his supernatural sidekick, a local tour guide and radio host gets to the bottom of western New York’s most terrifying legends. The Seneca Nation knew the area as the “good” or “pleasant” valley. Grateful for the waterfalls that provided power for their mills, early settlers dubbed Rochester the “Flour City.” For countless ghosts and spirits, however, the towns and cities of Genesee Country are simply called “home.” Local tour guide and radio host Ralph Esposito brings to life stories of New York’s strangest inhabitants. From a highway still traveled by the covered wagon of Underground Railroad conductor Walter Vond to a suburban neighborhood often treated to the clip-clop of hooves from a Civil War-era horseracing track, the Genesee River Valley is haunted! Includes photos!

Maverick Jetpants in The City of Quality

Rochester, 1999; a mystery surrounding arson; a hilarious and heart–breaking friendship based on a language of inside jokes. ". . . Bill Peters belongs in the ranks of serious literary artists."—New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice "One of the most inventive novels published this year."—The Los Angeles Review Rochester, New York, 1999: An arsonist is loose on the streets of a city in decline. Gone are the days of Rioting in the Vomit Cruiser, searching for a possible Tokyo Rocking Horse. In this hilarious, wildly original debut novel, Nathan Gray and best friend Necro live by the code of Joke Royalty, a system of in–jokes known only to a select few. But as the reality of full–time employment, possible spouses, and Neo–Nazis encroaches, their friendship unravels, threatening their dreams of becoming Kodak Park Winjas. Among the gravest Hellstacheries: Necro’s strangely vicious drawings and his sudden interest in a group of weapons enthusiasts who may or may not be responsible for the fires erupting through downtown. With no Holy Grail Points left to his name, Nate ventures into Rochester’s strangest corners to find out if his best friend is a domestic terrorist Pinning Bow Ties on the Dead or simply Maverick Jetpantsing on with his life—perhaps even beyond The City of Quality.
