In the 1830s, Obadiah Dogberry published this paper from an office in the Reynolds Arcade. A decade later, an association of Fourierist phalanxes in the area would briefly have an office here.

Erected in 1828 and expanded several times, this structure was one of Rochester's first major commercial buildings.

Shot from approximately the same vantage, this modern-day photo shows the present Reynolds Arcade. Built in 1932-3 immediately after the original building was demolished, the "new" Arcade contains 96,000 square feet of commercial space. In 1985 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
