Since you guessed Syracuse right on the "Guess the city" thread, now I want to show you my photos I took on November 23rd 2003.

It starts out on Interstate 81 coming from the Northern suburbs and heading into downtown Syracuse. I took over 100 photos, so this is just a small sample. (I might make another thread with more pics later) And yes, this is a Sunday Afternoon.

Nice photos Bizzo34. I especially like the Art Deco building toward the bottom -- do you know the designer by chance? Looks like it might be Cram and Goodhue IMO. I also like the red brick 7(ish) story hsitoric building on the corner near the park. It looks vacant, however. Do you know anything about the building?

Thanks!

The Art Deco building is the Niagara Mohawk power company headquarters building. (now a division of National Grid) I don't know who designed it. The old red building is used by the Transportation planning commission for the region (I'm pretty sure it is). I don't know why some windows look boarded up, maybe just part of the building is used. Sorry, I don't know much about the history of Syracuse. I'm really not a history buff. Thanks for the comments!

Syracuse always looks like a handsome city from the photographs. A long time ago, when I was in Upstate NY, I actually phptographed the Flatiron Building-it remains one of my favorite photographs that I've taken.

I hope the City can find an economic future other than a chain store-filled mall selling imported Chinese goods (DestiNY). :)

Gotta love the Dinosaur Barbacue....! Great food and lots of fun. One of the only reasons I go to Syracuse once in awhile. The City has great potential and is starting to make progress. Armory Square area is nice and the rehab on some buildings was done in the right way.
