Welcome to the Newto News for March of 2024. My name is Zack Cockfield, and my team and I created Newtomedia as a way for visitors or new residents to get information about a city. Each month we bring together resources that will update you on the history, amenities, culture, future opportunities and all other things inside a city that make it unique. We also hope to be a resource for connecting you with people and businesses that can help you live a better life. If you find our efforts useful, please click on the links to get more information!

Rochester, New York was first settled in the late 18th century by European settlers, but its history dates back even further to the indigenous peoples who originally inhabited the area. The city was officially incorporated in 1834 and quickly became a bustling hub for industry and innovation. Rochester became known for its thriving flour mills, manufacturing plants, and later on, as the birthplace of the Eastman Kodak company. The city was also a key stop on the Underground Railroad, helping enslaved individuals escape to freedom. Over the years, Rochester has been home to many prominent figures, including abolitionist Frederick Douglass and women’s rights advocate Susan B. Anthony. The city’s rich history is reflected in its diverse neighborhoods, historic landmarks, and vibrant cultural scene. Today, Rochester continues to thrive as a center for education, healthcare, and technology, while also celebrating its past through museums, festivals, and preservation efforts.
