Kindred’s Special: Rochester, NY–A perfect home for chess enthusiasts

In the heartland of western New York, Rochester has an old history that should attract the multitude of visitors to size up the surrounding territory, the city itself, and the enormous opportunities for the family looking for a home. Situated between Buffalo and Syracuse amid other smaller cities and towns, its central location to all this provides the prospective seeker of a place to find an abode rich in history, quality schools, churches of all faiths, quality hospitals and medical centers with what might be called ‘top physicians and medical care’ for the entire family.

Of course my main idea here is to entice chess playing families to consider Rochester as a great place to live. New York State has the largest park in America as well as numerous beautiful places to have picnics, outdoor fun, and colorful waterfalls. Many of these are within driving distance of Rochester. The wine center here in the Fingerlakes, along with the quality of city life featuring along East Avenue the various museums, science center, Eastman House that features old time films and history of Kodak’s founder. Every year we have the smell of lilacs where tens of thousands of visitors congregate to view, smell, and purchase goodies and snap memorable pictures.  A number of industries, service companies, financial institutions and opportunities for self-starters who can confirm that the region has great potential for small business opportunities and a wide variety of homes in the marketplace. The field of educational opportunities abound.

What has this got to do with chess? Well, for one thing, it is a great place to find chess activity, quality events, a variety of game play and scholastic chess support in schools that beckons the woodpusher to come to where the action is.

                                    FALL CHESS LEAGUE STARTS

THE ROCHESTER CHESS CENTER once again sponsors and holds in its club quarters the Fall Chess League that runs from September 14th through November 23, 2009.  With 10 rounds, one game per week (every Monday night) teams vie for honors in friendly competition. Substitutes are welcome as often a place may open up for a newcomer. Even so, the action usually is worth following. On Columbus Day, October 12, 2009, there will be no match.

All games are played on the premises of the Rochester Chess Center, 221 Norris Drive, Rochester, NY 14610, tel. 442-2430. Those planning to visit should call first to be sure the club will be open.

Chess coaches from the Center carry on chess classes at many area schools as well as on site. Also, it boasts a huge library of chess literature of all types and chess equipment to meet any enthusiasts needs and desires.
