Overview of Area 12
sober free zone


People who are in recovery from alcohol dependency will have a safe area to enjoy concerts at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park this summer.

A mobile sober spot, called Area 12, will be part of the Windstream Party in the Park concert series at the former Manhattan Square Park. Those concerts are held every Thursday night now through August.

The Two Guys and a Girl Radio Show (Recovery Now New York) has teamed up with the City of Rochester to offer the Area 12 spaces. They want everyone to be able to come out and enjoy the events during this summer season.

"I was at a couple concerts and I was like, 'Wow, this is tough.’ When you got alcohol around you and other stuff happening around you and we put our heads together and came up with Area 12," says David Attridge, Recovery Now NY.
