Syracuse Area Insight

  • One of the many pluses of living in or near a medium sized city is access to cultural opportunities. Cirque de Soleil, the modern day circus, returns to the Oncenter War Memorial Arena the first weekend in May to perform "OVO". "OVO" is "egg" in Portuguese and this performance teems with colorful, playful interpretation of insects in their natural habitat. A wonderful program for all ages.
  • April 28th through the 30th marks the Spring film event at the Palace Theater in East Syracuse. This celebration of filmmakers and musicians with connections to the CNY area presents film and live music. This is a prime example of the many not-for-profit organizations in the city that sponsor local creative talent while providing educational opportunities.
  • The annual free jazz festival was this weekend on the grounds of Onondaga Community College in Syracuse. The event was a field of brightly colored lawn chairs and blankets as folks gathered to listen to some of the country's best performers. Winton Marsalis and Buckwheat Zydeco performed on Friday and the inimitable Aretha Franklin performed on Saturday to rave reviews. Nice weather prevailed and a good time was had by all. Nothing like the sound of instruments under the stars.

    A new addition to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo was introduced yesterday, May 26, 2015. Just two weeks old, this baby boy elephant weighs close to 300 pounds and stands just over three feet tall. He is not named yet. The zoo will initiate a contest to generate his name. Proud parents, Mali and Doc welcomed the new addition. This is a third generation Asian elephant, one of a few born in North America. I can't wait to see him in person. The photos on the zoo's website are adorable. Fun fact: Mali was pregnant for more than 21 months.

    One of the important steps in enjoying the community you live in is paying attention to the little events that happen constantly in the Syracuse NY area. Our communities are very family friendly, sponsoring activities that don't cost a lot of money and can create strong childhood memories. So, for parents with young children or grandparents with young truck enthusiasts, check out the Big Rig Day at Burnet Park on the west side of Syracuse on Saturday, May 9th. In addition to the Weinermobile, the Game Truck, and a military Humvee, there will be several large trucks to explore.

    Imagine rising early on Christmas morning to help pack meals for hungry families. This year my son and I got up at 6 a.m. to be at the Syracuse Rescue Mission by 7 a.m. to help with set up and packing of take out dinners. After setting up silverware serving boxes, making cold drink mix and breaking down boxes, we were told to take a break until 8 a.m. At that point we wondered if our help was really needed. When 8 a.m. came, the answer was clear. Two lines were set up over hot food buffet tables, each with five work stations ending at a packing table.

    Then the work began in earnest. Workers began filling meal take-out trays; including turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, mixed vegetables and gravy. Then the packers put covers on and folded down the edges to secure the meal for delivery. Other tables were set up to add desserts, silverware, napkins and gifts for delivery. The large buffet trays were quickly depleted. Constant cries were heard above the din of kitchen noise: "more turkey", "I need more vegetables", "bring more trays, please" and on it went for 2-1/2 hours. To our delight, we learned that together we had packed 1,700 takeout meals before our shift was over.

    Our final task of the morning was cleaning the work station to get it ready for the next shift of servers. They would be filling plates for hungry people coming in to enjoy a Christmas dinner onsite. As we headed home for our own Christmas French toast brunch, we couldn't help but think what a great way to start Christmas Day, which is after all about God's gift to us. The ultimate "give back".
  • If you are thinking a mall is only for shopping, eating and the movies, think again! Destiny USA (newer addition to Carousel Mall) is all about fun! Ok yes, there are plenty of stores ranging from Old Navy to Armani and Ferragamo, but it is the indoor adventures that set this place apart from the rest. From go-carts, to simulation golf, to bowling, to the mirror maze, you can spend hours here and never shop for anything! Wonderworks is an indoor adventure for exploring your mind and stimulating your senses, and 5 Wits takes exploration to a whole other level! Come for the fun, and stay for the day!
  • Syracuse is home to its own Triple A international baseball team, the Syracuse Chiefs. This year's season is in full swing. Attend a home game at the NBT Bank Stadium adjacent to the Regional Market near Destiny. The Syracuse Chiefs are the farm team for the Washington Nationals.
  • Visit the Redhouse Art Center at 201 S. West Street in Syracuse for great art and entertainment. This not-for-profit center opened in 2004 and will soon be moving to a new location downtown. Enjoy all or some of the local talents showcased and presented via concerts, gallery exhibitions, plays, films, musicals and other special events.
  • Every year as the summer winds to a close in Upstate New York, the Great New York State Fair opens at the fairgrounds, bringing visitors from near and far to celebrate the culmination of another agriculture season. There is something here for everyone - regardless of age or interest. Tour the exhibits, listen to free concerts at Chevy Court, get thrills on one of the many rides, eat Fair food, play games, visit the animals, and learn about the things that make New York State and Syracuse such a wonderful place to live.
  • I recently celebrated our four-year-old's birthday party at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo. I have to say what an amazing job the entire zoo staff did in making it a great experience for the kids. The price was reasonable and they did everything, even supplied the cake. All the party goers got to go early to enjoy the zoo before the party. The zoo has been newly renovated and looks amazing. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful zoo so close to home. Our zoo features an octopus, bears, lions, tigers, elephants and so much more. The zoo leaves you wanting more.
  • Looking for a great educational activity for children of all ages, visit the MOST in the city of Syracuse near Armory Square. Lots of hands-on experiences that are more fun than text book study. Children will engage in experiments that demonstrate concepts that convey learning through osmosis. Visit the IMAX theater and the planetarium.
  • The Fairgrounds on the west side of Syracuse is a venue for all kinds of events throughout the year. One of my favorites occurs in July every year, where more than 7000 classic car owners gather to show off their wheels. This event allows visitors to see the best of the best in all categories - hot rods, classics, custom renovations, antique roadsters, trucks, and muscle cars. Vendors provide a vast array of collectibles and there's great food. What a great way to spend a day, cruising down memory lane.

    Visit one of Syracuse's hidden gems on the west side of Syracuse. The zoo boasts as many as 700 animals. See lions, tigers, panda bears, elephants and penguins, tropical fish, monkeys and a giant Pacific Octopus in just a few of their many displays. The Rosamond Gifford Zoo hosts many special events throughout the seasons that are designed to delight all ages. My favorite is the Asian Elephant Extravaganza in mid August.

    On Thursday, May 22 it was a privilege to join with a group of singers from around the area to welcome 31 new citizens into the American family. The ceremony was presided over by the honorable Fredrick J. Scullin, Jr. Judge Scullin presided with a perfect mix of ceremony and comfort. He invited families of the new citizens to feel free to take photos and participate in this momentous event in their lives. He also reminded all of us of the importance of citizenship, both its blessings and responsibilities. He pointed out the important part we all play in the legal system, as our system is based on citizen jury participation. All in all a wonderful ceremony. Thumbs up to a great Senior Justice and best wishes to our 31 new citizen members of the community.
