A column on Nostalgic Syracuse, a Facebook page built around the wistfulness intertwined with so many Upstate cities. A question for old friends from Upstate: With all our cities, once such economic engines, is nostalgia a progressive or paralyzing force? http://www.syracuse.com/kirst/index.ssf/2014/07/nostalgic_syracuse_a_facebook_page_that_intertwines_loss_wistfulness_and_aspirat.html
A Facebook page, for Central New Yorkers, that becomes a route to a lost home.
