Graffitic Species – Splendid Decay Along The Syracuse Creekwalk, 15 November 2014

About This Gallery

I moved to downtown Syracuse in 2005 but, despite having been a part of astronomical events with the Syracuse Astronomical Society and CNY Observers at select locations on it, only ever discovered the joy of a Creekwalk excursion after seeing a few people in the distance from outside the Franklin Square Freedom Of Espresso in 2012. Among the highlights of waking from end to end was the ever-present and changing graffiti on building sides and underpasses. This page and another from 4 April 2015 mark the two times I had a good camera with me and saw enough to wanted to capture.

Photographs were taken during a 15 November 2015 excursion along the Onondaga Creekwalk, starting near Freedom Of Espresso (mocha in hand) and following all the way along to the Inner Harbor.

In searching for additional information about conditions at the Creekwalk, I came across a wonderful recent post by Sergey Kadinsky about "Onondaga Creek, Syracuse" on his Hidden Waters Blog. Excellent summary.
