A Look Back at Some of Our Best Instagram Pics 2016



Instagram has proven to be a great social media tool for many of us to share a quick photo or video to capture a moment in time (read: instant picture, but better!). This is especially true because we're always running about the city with our phones in hand, and because our following on this mobile platform has grown to well over 8,500. 

So we thought, what better way to show our year-in-review than to peruse some of our most popular Instagrams? From the popular City of Rochester logo to The Little Theatre, to a Dunwoody painting and many different angles of downtown, it's all here. Click on each to go right to the Instagram post.
