This is great information. The trouble is, Syracuse continues to struggle with its identity and still searches for its soul. It has so much of what it needs for a return to growth and greatness: abundant water, a dynamic university and many smaller (quality) colleges in the immediate area, beautiful countryside, enjoyable annual events, two prominent interstates (which cross each other very well), an historic and functional canal, railroads, a major airport and well educated people. At the turn of the 20th Century when Ka-noo-no was held, Syracuse was larger than LA. By 1950 it had nearly a quarter of a million people. We know the rest of the story. Where is the leadership and vision? It might help if NYS could get off the back of its communities and their residents.
Off topic, but thought you might be interested that some Syracusans STILL think an overhead walkway would be a grand idea.http://www.syracuse.com/kirst/index.ssf/2010/05/post_48.html
