A little primer for those of you who have not had the pleasure of visiting lovely Syracuse, NY. Really, the only thing missing the attached entry on Syracuse is the author crowning the University as the one true unfettered glory hole of upstate New York.
One such nugget from the link :
It was decided in 1831 that the Erie Canal would run through the city of Syracuse. Syracuse would now proudly brag it was home to the world's second most useless waterway. In 1886, the city decided to begin an official "Fuck up Onondaga Lake Campaign". Over the next 100 years, chemicals, raw sewage, Billy Fuccilo's hair, and Hoffman's white hotdogs were dumped into the lake. The campaign was an overwhelming success. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Syracuse experienced an influx of Irish immigrants. This gave city officials an excuse to turn a traffic light upside down in the Irish neighborhood of Tipperary Hill, "just to fuck with everyone." The traffic light remains upside down to this day.
