Rochester vs. Buffalo

So I spent last weekend in Rochester.  I did everything from hanging out at a house on the water, going out to eat, partying at an awesome '80s club and getting lost downtown. 

Granted there was a bike race in downtown Rochester, but even with the Gus Macker Tournament happening in downtown Buffalo, Rochester's livliness beat Buffalo's 10:1.

Why is this?  Buffalo is New York State's "2nd largest city."  But, our population is dwindling and our neighbor city to the north seems to be beating us economically and in its waterfront developments.

(And yes, I am aware that Rochester has its downfalls and bad areas, as any city does.)

But, are we too far behind now?  Can our generation take our city back?
