Welcome to Sinclair & Andrews Insurance Inc.―one of the newest member of the Northside Business Partnership! They’re located in the Hawley-Green district and share a beautiful building with Schumm & Maxian and a parking lot with Laci’s Tapas Bar. Sinclair & Andrews specializes in a variety of insurance types and works with many entities throughout the Northside and the rest of the city. Staying connected with the community is a priority for the company. Many years ago they were involved with the Greater James Street Association, which has since disbanded. Since then, Sinclair & Andrews looked for other similar organizations. NBP is an opportunity for them to continue in their support of the neighborhood and contribute to the revitalization of the Northside.

In Da Window #3 at Echo
745 N. Salina Street
See full event listing >
The third installment of the ‘In Da Window‘ series at Echo presents a collaboration between photographer Joe Lingeman and poet Peter Mishler. The installation, which opens tomorrow at 5 P.M., showcases a response to the artists’ collective experience on the Northside:
“The artists began by creating work in their respective media as a response to the neighborhood around the Echo shared studio space. Then, the artists exchanged “data,” and, following cues from this exchange, set out to create more new work. The result is a photo and image response to the artists’ collective experience on the North Side.”
On Sunday, The Syracuse Media Group launched a yearlong effort to find out “What Works” in Central New York:
“Armed with your ideas, we will use all the storytelling tools and platforms at our fingertips to explore what’s working, and why. If we do it right, the work will do more than make you feel good. It will inspire you to act. It will show you how to replicate successes in other places and on different scales. It will make you believe that a sense of community still exists, and that hard problems like creating jobs and soft problems like creating art can be solved if confronted with energy and ingenuity.
What sets this effort apart from anything we’ve done before as a media company is a commitment to share our bully pulpit with you — to initiate and propel a community dialogue on topics that really matter to you. And a dialogue – a two-way conversation — is what we want it to be.”

After two years of searching, Echo will reveal their new event space this Friday at NEXT, a launch party featuring live music, poetry, improv comedy, film projections and an art installation.
“Echo will occupy the ground floor of a three-story building that was once a hotel when the New York Central Railroad Co. terminal was located between Burnet Avenue and Erie Boulevard. In the past, the first floor has been a bar, the Old Parochial League, and recently a print shop. Echo’s partners will leave the space open allowing for flexibility in presenting a variety of events. “It’s a raw space, which is what we prefer,” said Vallelonga.”

Last week long-time ESPN personality, Dick Vitale, traveled to Syracuse to be part of the broadcasting team for last Saturday’s SU game. After spending time at Destiny USA, posing for pictures with fans and perhaps even taking a ride on the carousel, he ventured into the Northside to eat dinner at Attilio’s Restaurant and Bar. Via his Instagram account, Dick Vitale gave the locally-owned restaurant a big thumbs-up, saying “Food and service was fab.”

The Syracuse Land Bank invites the community to a brainstorm session about the future of Butternut Street this Thursday. The Land Bank owns a number of properties along Butternut and would like input about different ways to improve quality of life, curb-appeal, and public perception of this street through the redevelopment of properties and their sale to responsible owners. The hope is that the cluster of properties owned by the Land Bank will help develop visible change along the corridor. The brainstorm meeting will begin at 5:30 PM in the Community Room at White Branch Library. All interested are welcome to attend.
To see a list of properties owned by the Land Bank, visit their website.
