Damn South Side, You Look Good

The Stand celebrated a milestone event this summer when our Annual South Side Photo Walk reached its 10th year. Mayor Ben Walsh recognized the day by declaring July 27 “Annual South Side Stand Photo Walk Day” in the city of Syracuse.

We are honoring this event by dedicated 12 pages in September’s print issue to showcase photos taken by more than 50 Photo Walk participants. To view all Photo Walk images shared by our participating photographers, click here.

Also over the summer, many South Siders stepped up and took a few minutes to complete a survey to help us learn how to make our local news coverage even better. We want to hear from more people, including you! Click here to take the survey.

The Historic Photo Walk participants prepare to leave the South Side Innovation Center for their first stop at the South Presbyterian Church.

And we’re excited to learn that this year’s Historic Photo Walk Leader David Haas will be recognized by the Preservation Association of Central New York (PACNY) for the generous donation of his time and efforts in helping to organize one of this year’s four walks. Haas led a group of Photo Walk participants to six historic sites. He will be awarded a 2019 Preservation Merit Award Oct. 23 in recognition of exceptional achievement in historic preservation.

And the excitement continues as we work to plan a gallery exhibit of select images from the Photo Walk. Keep an eye on The Stand’s homepage and our social media accounts for updates.
