This site will focus on the recent history of the city of Syracuse, NY and its surrounding suburbs. While most of my personal input will be from the North Syracuse area in the 1980s, I am also looking for contributions from the Central New York area from any time prior to 1995. What I am looking for includes (but is not limited to) photos, documents and audio / video recordings. If you have any old video tapes that were used to tape shows on local TV channels I will transfer the local sections of the tapes to DVD (giving you a copy if you'd like) and post the most interesting clips on the site. Please send an e-mail to theaudacityny@lycos.com if you'd like to contribute something to the site, or for more information. I will be updating the site whenever I get a contribution or find something else of my own to post, so please check back every once in awhile.
