Burgh Diaspora suggests that Upstate urban boosters should focus their energies on Buffalo’s cause (or at least devote some time to it).
What do you think? Is there any evidence that Buffalo is going to experience meaningful economic growth soon, and what can Syracusans do to help? (Personally, I am still evaluating the Atlantica concept and wondering if Central New York’s economic future lies to the north, not the west.)
Buffalo bloggers do not, in general, write about Syracuse or about how Syracuse would fit in to a Buffalo-centered regional economy. I admit I paid more attention to Buffalo in the early years of this blog, but the cross-posting remains sporadic.
(Burgh Diaspora’s post was prompted by a lengthy NY Times article on Buffalo’s endangered architecture, which dovetails with our discussion this week of Blodgett School. As I said way back when posting about the 10th anniversary of the demolition of the Genesee Theater, we really need a serious list of “10 Most Endangered Local Buildings” and start thinking ahead publicly about vulnerable structures long before they become targets for demolition.)
