The Duffy - McInnerney Company Building located on the West Main Street and North Fitzhugh Street in Downtown Rochester, NY. 
Circa 1907. 


The Duffy-McInnerney Department Store building opened in 1907, originally operating as a retail and dry goods store. In 1911, its name was changed to "Duffy-Powers Building" until it declared banruptcy (during the Great Depression) in 1932. Purchased by the Rochester Saving Bank, it then became the known as the Civic Exhibits building in 1940. In 1943, the building was purchased by the U.S. Government, and teaming up with Kodak, the “Kodak Naval Ordinance Plant” was occupied by the Navy for wartime ammunition manufacturing purposes. In 1961, the property was acquired by Rochester Institute of Technology and became the College of General Studies and College of Business as part of its downtown campus. In the years R.I.T. occupied the building, it was called "50 West Main," "Metropolitan Center," and "City Center." Today, is it known as "City Place," operating as a department of the Rochester DMV and Monroe County offices.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on September 17, 1974.
