Solve this easy puzzle at the Sedentary Ferry Terminal to find a cache with a list of "Top Rochester Cache Sites" with coordinates and short summary descriptions for visitors.

The name of the person (statue) at the listed coordinates will guide you to a list of great caches on the north side of Rochester. Write down the name at the base of the statue: ------efg ------xyz. You only need the last three letters of each name. Using the Key of A=1, B=2, C=3 etc, write down (don't add) the numbers sequentially.
- e f g (subtract for N value)
= N 43*_ _._ _ _
- x y z (subtract for W value)
= W 077*_ _._ _ _

You can walk or drive 0.1 mile to the cache from the statue. Look for a quart (liter) tupperware container filled with a logbook, pencil and visitor information sheets with nice caches on the north side of Rochester, starting at the Ferry Terminal. No trade items please at this site, and be stealthy! Rehide the cache carefully where you found it.

Note: I thought of this cache idea after visiting other cities and wasting time at junk caches. Who wants to find a magnetic key holder in a parking lot? I thought visitors would enjoy advice on caches they could do on a one or two day visit. Let me know if you think I should include other caches in this list. Coming soon: Visitor's Info Cache for Rochester South.

Enjoyed being in this area today. Few muggles and very windy. Found the cache with no problem.

I tried to figure out who was honored with a statue at the new ferry terminal by researching online to no avail. I had to see the statue in person to learn it is unique to the area. A quick calculation brought me to the 10th of a mile away hiding spot. Due to potential muggle issues I abandoned my large red and white umbrella and made the grab returning to my cache mobile to sign in. I can hardly argue with your cache recommendations, heck, one of mine made the list!

Thanks for the FTF prize.
