Slow Road: episode 1


As we recently announced, the Rochesteriat is excited to be partnering with Slow Road to be one of the outlets to show the new production they call “a Spirit of Place documentary series dedicated to capturing the roads less traveled and benefiting and honoring the people and places we discover.” Although we are city-focused and believe in living local and supporting local, the Slow Road series takes us out of our urban comfort zone, intentionally forgoing the highways, guiding us on a journey through the "slow roads" - allowing us see and support the "local" of other small cities and towns. It's a model of thought and travel that we readily stand behind, because the highways of the last 50+ years have been designed to get people in and out cities as quick as possible - and in the process, quite literally making us lose sight of the true essence of (any) place.

This episode starts on our very own East Ave in the heart of our city and takes route 96 straight to Mac's Drive-In in Waterloo, NY.

Take the slow road.
