When I was growing up in Rochester
in the 1980s
, a large corner of Highland Park (all of which is actually in the city of Rochester, not in Brighton) at South Ave and Highland Ave underwent a large construction project, which was to landscape a previously flat and featureless grassy area into a cute little gardeny thing with brick pathways.
The project experienced a setback when it was discovered that the area had been used as a graveyard for an orphanage and/or sanatorium for some period in the 19th century. For a couple of months the construction crew cleared out while each grave was painstakingly excavated. Since my school bus passed the site every day, I was able to watch the archeologists' progress in digging out each person-sized hole. I don't know how many graves were found, or what happened to any of the remains.
After all of the gravesites were... um... dug up, construction resumed. Along with some winding brick paths and a few mulched-up garden plots, they built a very strange looking gazebo, made of curved metal beams painted in lavender, pink and maroon (lilac-y colors, I guess), with an arched roof of glass brick. I noticed lots and lots of wedding photos being taken under the new gazebo, which was dubbed by my cohort the "Geek Wazoo." We used to go there late at night to do illicit things or otherwise waste time. In the warm weather, when we needed a place to meet up with folks or just wanted avoid being at anyone's house, we'd end up there, staring at the strange imbedded overhead lights that seemed to switch on and off at random.
Over the years, the Geek Wazoo deteriorated. The last time I was in Rochester (about 1995) I noticed that the welded metal was covered with long streaks of rust, and had a general air of decrepitude. I assume it's since been torn down.
