First Glimpses of Historic Hotel Syracuse, Newly Renovated

In early July the historic Hotel Syracuse will officially become the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, 
5 stars and yes, it will have a Presidential Suite.

Fairbanks Scales, First of Two

The Downtown Committee held a new-housing tour over the weekend. 

I found two Fairbanks scales along the way, one here at the old Hurbson Building, and the other (to be posted tomorrow) in the Krell Building, also known as the Herald Building. 

Fairbanks Scales were manufactured in St. Johnsbury VT. The company still exists, but elsewhere and in a very different form. There is an interesting history of the company here.

Crazy Daisies on Kasson Road

Plants are arranged by color for handy mix and match. Wonderful!
