A lively modern city, busy SYRACUSE made its name
first for the production of salt and, more importantly, for its central
position on the Erie Canal. Despite a population nudging half a million,
there's little to see, though the presence of Syracuse University
gives downtown an active and youthful feel. The redevelopment of Armory
Square , around Franklin and Fayette streets, as an area of specialty
shops, galleries and cafs has gone some way toward adding character
to the city center, but the city still feels dominated by the highways
and railroads that slice through it.
