Thanks to all of the business and property owners that gathered at Sparky Town for a our fall Northside Networking Event. Hosted by the Northside Business Partnership (NBP), these events are an opportunity to engage with community members, share ideas, and make important connections over a spread of appetizers and beverages.
The evening was also a great way to celebrate Sparky Town, a long-time NBP member that will officially close at the end of the year in order to explore other interests. We’re very thankful for their contribution to our neighborhood and are excited to see what the future holds.

Melinda Johnson wrote an excellent piece about the retirement of Geoffrey Navias, Artistic Director of Open Hand Theater, in 2015. We’re going to miss this creative visionary, but look forward to seeing what comes next for this theater and museum!
“SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Geoffrey Navias, artistic director and a founder of Open Hand Theater, will retire in May. For 34 years, Navias has been involved as a performer, writer, director, mask and puppet maker and administrator of the arts organization. He has overseen its transformation from its beginnings in a warehouse on Walton Street in Armory Square to its current landmark location in a former mansion on Syracuse’s northside. It is known as Open Hand Theater – At the Castle on North Salina Street.”
