It’s hard to define Rochester in a simple sentence. It’s a city that has one of the highest death per capita rate in New York, yet was rated 3rd in Forbes “Best Places to Raise a Family”. It’s a place where great artwork occupies sames the same location as abject poverty. So many layers to this city, so much lost possibilities yet so much potential. That is why I won’t try to define Rochester in one sentence. It takes a whole website to just get a glimpse of how beautifully run down, amazingly ugly, and simply awe inspiring this city truly is.

Our magazine is dedicated to showing the local art, culture, and music that most take for granted. We will show you people from all walks of life that love this city for what it is; The young lion of the west, that seems to be waking up from a long nap.

Pledging to The Rochester Insomniac will help us continue to provide free magazines, online content, and podcasts as well as expand into new ventures suck as video and events. 
$0 of $200 per Each Magazine Issue
Our office is run on an old middle school desktop and a hodgepodge of second hand cameras and recorders. Raising this amount will help us buy better more stable equipment which will help us produce higher quality content faster.
