State News

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The lights are about to shine on Rochester’s iconic statue of Frederick Douglass.

The statue was recently moved to a new location at Highland Park in Rochester, closer to the street so more people can see it.

Monroe County also built a memorial plaza with a new sculpture of constellations including the North Star.

Monroe County will have a first lighting ceremony tonight at 5 p.m.
