Maureen Green wrote a very bullish column today on the rebirth of downtown:
Maureen Green: Downtown Syracuse rising from the dead | syracuse.com

I agree with her.

Great article and I also concur with what she said. I found the example of the commuter that lives Downtown interesting too.

The presence of reverse commuters who live downtown by choice and not because of a job within walking distance is a very good sign and consistent with what has been happening in major cities across the country for well over a decade.

Very true and interestingly, I'm surprised that other cities in the region haven't caught on to this.

You can count me in as one of those too. Live in armory, but work in East Syracuse.

This commute is probably less stressful too. You're driving in the opposite direction than most and get to live in an area where there are things going on. Sounds like a win-win.
