the five years i spent in this city are some of the best and some of the worst. whenever i see syracuse in a headline i pause and wonder, "what would anyone have to say about this place?" now, don't get me wrong, i loved going to undergrad there and wouldn't trade it, but i'm certainly never headed back.
today as i was skimming some blogs i came across this one: A Love Letter To Syracuse
I paused. And clicked.
Stephen Powers and his crew of painters have come to Syracuse to transform what has been a colossal barrier between two very disparate neighborhoods into a point of interest, a gathering spot, and a conversation.
no, i'm not mesmerized. but i'm happy to see someone taking at least one step towards revitalizing Syracuse (or at least bringing a little attention to it).
