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

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.

Robert Baker, Monica Palmer and Patrick Gannon participated in the roundtable discussion for Thursday's Social Media Breakfast (SMB) 18. The moderator was Kevin Morrow (far left). The event was held at Gannon's Isle on Valley Drive.

As a continuation of the social media and food series, the Social Media Breakfast group held their meeting at the ultimate fun shop on Thursday. The guests heard about the social media strategies for Dinosaur Bar B Que, Empire Brewing and Gannon’s Isle.

Best of all, they served ice cream for breakfast.  Not a bad way to start a late summer day.
