Centro’s SU to Destiny Route: Congestive Headway Failure

Check out this recent post on Syracuse Urban Properties (aka Syrup) about using a trolley or tram to bring visitors from DestiNY USA to downtown.  We are in favor of that scenario, and would also recommend reviving OnTrack service through the city.

The debate on the future of Route I 81 continues.

Last week, I saw High Line Park in New York and found it to be an interesting infusion of green space into the Chelsea neighborhood.
