Make a map, take a map!
On Oct. 4th, 2013, members of the community were invited to celebrate the grand opening of the "Syracuse Pedestrian Routes" project. Guests were invited to share their own stories of walking in the city of Syracuse by adding their personal journeys on to a large blank map on the wall. After contributing their own route, each guest was given a free pedestrian map.
