St. Ann's Tower is no more

This morning at 10:00 am, the St. Ann's Tower, a 19 story round building, near the 104 Expressway, was imploded.  It was built the year before I came to Rochester nearly 40 years ago.  It was originally a senior citizen's apartment building and then became an assisted living home.  The building itself had no special meaning to me, in fact, I was never inside it.  It's just sad when something that has been around forever needs to be torn down.  It was one of those things you "expect" to see as you are driving along the expressway.

  1. Every time you mention Rochester, I think about my husband's aunt who lived there until she died. She was a Cashwell.

  2. Yes, it's hard to see old landmarks go, isn't it. :\

    Happy Sunday,
