Two years ago, Barry Skolnick moved from his longtime home of New York City to downtown Rochester.
Having just retired, he traded a lively, fast-paced, urban life for one a bit slower-paced, although just as engaging, he said.
He had lived in New York City since age 2, and now he’s happy living in downtown Rochester.
“We were looking for a place to live where the air was fresher and a little bit cleaner; kind of a slightly slower pace but still a lot activities. And a place where there’s a good medical center,” Skolnick said
