Garbage Plate Alley, Tweedledee Plaza and Tweedledum Street, Rattlesnake Pete Place. Those are just some of the names you suggested for the new street and plaza that will go through the redeveloped Midtown site.

City Council will consider these suggestions at the Council meeting next month. The new street is expected to open at the end of May.

We are told more than 300 name suggestions came in and Mayor Lovely Warren says most of the ideas are connected to Midtown's history like "Clock of Nations Magic Mountain and McCurdy’s. Other names are tied to famous Rochesterians like Cab Calloway and Susan B. Anthony.
