Steve Powers’ street art project, “A Love Letter to Syracuse,” has been up for a couple of months now. But this is the first time I’ve seen this excellent video of the project.
We at Handshake have more than a middling connection with the Salt City, and it’s great to hear how so few of the residents on the West Side — the poorest part of the city — found anything to dislike about their hometown.
For those unfamiliar with the project, the original press release is copied after the jump.
A few days ago I visited the Onondaga Lake Skate Park in Liverpool, N.Y., to research a skateboard story for the local newspaper. Most of the skaters there were around 12-years-old. Some had braces, all of them had scars.
I spent a couple hours chatting with some local skateboarders and shooting some video with my new iPhone 4.
The entire experience was sublime. The iPhone 4’s HD video capture is scarily easy to use. All I had to do was select the “Camera” icon, switch to video mode and turn the unit sideways.
