Convention Center

View of the south-facing facade of Rochester Riverfront Convention Center, seen from across Main Street, looking north. If Water Street had not been eliminated south of Andrews Street (see map, next image), the intersection of Main and Water would occupy the center of the image, cutting the Convention Center's south-facing facade roughly in half.

Monroe Hall location

Monroe Hall location

This 1930 map still shows Water Street running continuously, parallel to the Genesee River. The yellow arrow indicates the corner of Main and Water Streets. It is not known on which corner the Kearney and Doyle Building, which contained Monroe Hall, stood.

The blue arrow at top shows the corner of Water and Andrews Streets, where Water Street now ends.
