Spanning the gap : Stories

In collaboration with City Lore's Molly Garfinkel and the Urban Folklife Center, we've been documenting stories, traditions, and ideas from our neighbors, local historians, planners, and Erie Canal Trail users.

Watch the video to learn about the gap and what it means to the community.

We also worked in collaboration with The Erie Canal Museum to tell the story of how the gap in the Old Erie Canal came to be. We want to send a shout out to our summer intern Matthew Romano from SUNY ESF for making it all possible. If you ever wondered where the Canal used to go through the Syracuse area, this video is for you!

Keep an eye out as we continue to highlight some of the stories on the Elevating Erie Blog
