Hope everyone is having a lucky 7-7-07. A worldwide vote for the new “Seven Wonders of the World” has been in the news recently, and many local papers are getting in on the act by asking readers their opinions on “The Seven Wonders of [Your Hometown].” Let’s do this for Syracuse and maybe throw it open to all of Onondaga County. (Maybe it would be more productive to first identify 7 Wonders than to identify the 10 Most Endangered Buildings…) The only rule is that these have to be man-made wonders (natural wonders can come in a different list).
Let’s see… obviously, we should include the Carrier Dome and the Landmark Theatre… but what else? (I am coming up with more items for a “7 Horrors” list — Route 81, Solvay waste beds — but let’s be positive.)
Updated: Northview Diary does a riff on this topic: The Seven Wonders of My Farm. Capital idea! If I had more time today I’d do “The Seven Wonders of My Cellar.” (no, really that SHOULD be the Seven Horrors…)
