Here’s an editorial by publisher William Brod who writes about the can-do spirit that developed and will be needed to keep re-imagining and adapting the Connective Corridor.

The CNY region gets into a state of readiness as the 168 Centro Bus passes Forman Avenue along the Connective Corridor.

Syracuse shows off another facet of readiness this evening as the 168 Centro Bus (East Fayette/Erie-Shoppingtown) passes Forman Avenue along the Connective Corridor--four days before the big game.

Centro's SU to Destiny Route

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.

Anyone who’s ridden Centro’s jam-packed SU-Destiny Route on a Friday evening would agree. OnTrack would certainly be beneficial during any construction or demolition of Route I81.

Civic Innovation in Action (continued) from Syracuse in Focus on Vimeo.

Here’s part two of our conversation with Linda Dickerson Hartsock, director of the Connective Corridor. She talks about the Corridor as a social network and destination as much as a transportation route. It has literally connected some neighborhoods a stop at a time.

Under her leadership the route has the potential to become that third space (as in that place between work and home) here in the city.

Today was the first day for the 2013 Syracuse Nationals. Traditionally after the show people gather in and around Electronics Parkway in Liverpool (particularly the hotels) to check out the hot rods and classic rides.

As usual there were plenty of sparkling Camaros, Caddy’s and Plymouth muscle cars on display, however, an unlikely pair of undersized foreign cars drew a lot of attention this evening, including a turbo-charged 1966 Fiat 600 (see below).
