Rochester’s Midtown Plaza was just one year old when RIT students gathered there for the 1963 Spring Weekend formal. This year – 2008 – the shopping mall is being demolished to make room for the new headquarters of PAETEC, a telecommunications company. The Midtown centerpiece Clock of Nations will be restored and moved to the Greater Rochester International Airport until 2012, when it will be donated to the Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong.
