Model Pedestrian is ROCwiki user LoriWheeland The Sister Cities Pedestrian Bridge is a pedestrian bridge that crosses the Genesee River in Downtown Rochester's Convention District, and has flags (and plaques) representing each of Rochester's Sister Cities around the world. There is also a mini-park originally called the Genesee Crossroads, and now called Charles Carroll Plaza, named after one of the three original founders of the city..

The bridge was little used and in disrepair. Fortunately as part of the ROC the Riverway plan, the plaza and the bridge are being rebuilt. The current plan includes an amphitheater along the river and a completely renovated bridge and park area. Completion is scheduled for end of 2023.
