Syracuse New Times Photo Archives

I returned to the Syracuse New Times on August 4, 2016 and was allowed to browse through several file cabinets full of photos, picking out ones that I thought would be of interest to viewers of this site. It took me the better part of the afternoon to look through hundreds of photos and scan the ones I chose along the way. I ended up getting 50 great photos that I think you all will enjoy. I separated them into the links below to (hopefully) make them easier to find.


LOCAL BANDS
- Old promotional photos of local bands. Includes Electric Chick Magnets, Flashcubes, Masters Of Reality, etc.


MALLS AND STORES
- Photos of old arcades, record stores, and malls.


NEWSCASTERS
- Promotional photos of Wayne Mahar from 1989 and David Muir from 1998.


OIL CITY
- See what the Destiny USA area of Syracuse looked like before the mall was built.


STREETS AND STATE FAIR
- Old photos of Syracuse streets, sign and buildings, and some from the New York State Fair.


THEATERS AND ARENAS
- Photos of Loews, Westcott, Kallett, etc.


Many thanks to David Armelino and everyone at the Syracuse New Times for allowing me to browse through their photo archives. It was truly an honor to be able to have access to so much local history. Please click here to see a New Times cover story that David wrote about this site.
