Once again, one of our best product/experiences is on the move. First it was Maryland and Chadds Ford (PA), and soon Wegmans will land in Brooklyn. Something we in Central New York take for granted becomes fuel for the buzz machine in other locales.
Who would ever think that an Upstate grocery store chain would bring more excitement to Brooklyn than a presidential campaign headquarters. Let’s call it the Wegmans Effect.
Thanks to SHAZOW! Media and Syracuseinfo Pages for hooking us up with Syracuse Posters at Destiny USA.
We recently heard a talk by David Ashcraft and couldn’t help thinking how much it applied to the I81 Challenge we are facing here in Syracuse. Ashcraft pointed out that when it comes to crucial conversations we must be aware that:
- Opinions Vary
- The Stakes are High
- Emotions are strong.
As the various constituencies and groups continue to debate what is the best use of the thorofare, we hope they remember to ask critical questions, such as what do we want for ourselves, for others, and for the city as a whole?
This kind of constructive dialogue must continue as the city matures into the 21st century.
We heard he also made an appearance to sign bottles of his vodka brand at a North side liquor outlet on Saturday.
We went to see Rich Cimini not because he has some great stories about Bill Parcels, Rex Ryan and Jim Boheheim; not because he’s covered 24 Super Bowls and over 400 NFL games, but we went to say thank you. Cimini pulled us in on a story he was doing back in the day about Laveranues Coles and Steve Yarnell. You can see the photograph we shot for the piece here.
Cimini’s gesture helped us tremendously that year. Thanks Rich.
Also kudos to Professor John Nicholson, from the Newhouse Sports Media Center, who each year puts together a great roster of sports reporters to visit Syracuse and talk about their craft.
