Broad Street Underground was formed by a group of motivated, all volunteer citizens concerned about the future of the Broad Street Aqueduct in Rochester, NY and the waste of one of our wonderful and historic resources. Our mission is to promote and facilitate re-purposing the historic Broad Street Aqueduct through a public/private enterprise into an enclosed promenade of street shops and a hub of global culture. The Broad Street Aqueduct sits empty, waiting to be re-purposed and made available to citizens of the Rochester area and tourism.
Creating an Urban Space
EVERYONE can use!
Shops, Sister Cities shops, restaurant, music venue, public gathering areas, displays, a networking center and much more.

"THE ATMOSPHERE WILL BE THAT OF A BUSTLING BAZAAR, WITH BANNERS, AROMAS, DISPLAYS, FESTIVE NOISES, AND OPEN AIR SHOPS. AT NIGHT IT WILL BE LIT INSIDE AND OUT, A VISUAL FOCUS FOR DOWNTOWN ROCHESTER."
