The New York State Fair signals an end to summer more than the start of the fall. The attendance for this year’s Fair was 965,147, including a single day record on Labor Day of 122, 870.  We will miss those bright, warm and mostly sunny days at one of our region’s best tourist attractions.

Here are some photographs to savor until next year’s edition.

Thanks to the folks from Pairs-N-Squares (Liverpool) and Shirts-N- Skirts (Fulton) for talking with us about the world of Square Dance. They told us that a typical dance lasts about 3 hours and is the equivalent of walking 5 miles.

Shirts-n-skirts celebrates 60 years in 2014.

Syracuse Architectural Digest: The Corridor, An Appreciation

Monday, August 25th, 2014
“[Leaders] have the power to create an environment in which people will naturally thrive and advance…” Simon Sinek, Leaders Eat Last

Can the Corridor become the new heart of the city

Can the Corridor become the new heart of the city

Last week the Connective Corridor threw a Midsummer Night Party at Forman Park. The event included dining, music and a public art instillation. We didn’t get to stay for the whole event, which started late due to midday rain, but what we saw looked like attending a big dinner party crawling with interesting people (including politicians, police officers, neighborhood business leaders, students, SU officials and visitors from out of town).

Despite what we think about the price tag and the construction delays, the Connective Corridor project continues to bring people together in Midtown, Downtown, on the Hill, and the Near Westside.

We realize there are other pressing issues for our city, such as the frequent water main breaks and aging infrastructure.  Most NY cities have this problem.

We also are convinced that there’s no magic bullet or cure-all for Syracuse (including downtown stadiums, highway re-routing and harbor hotels), but we applaud the radical focus the Corridor team has applied to coalescing the city through transportation/design/arts.

The Corridor office operates like a reality award-winning R&D shop and urban design center.They are dedicated to making the city work better and we’ve seen it up close.  The Corridor leadership under the direction of Marilyn Higgins and Linda Dickerson Hartsock has produced some great initiatives. Chancellor Cantor may have cast the vision, but Higgins and Hartsock helped bring it to pass.

Someday we all will look back and realize The Corridor was one of the five things that helped revive this city.

May the innovations continue.
