Hi All, 

Just wanted to drop a line to say the Belfer staff (that is Me, the archivist and Jenny Doctor, the director for sure, Bob, the audio engineer is undecided) will be coming to the conference, so please do not drop by during the conference. We would hate not to be here to talk about our collections. We're also planning on attending the pre-conference workshop. We will of course be happy to talk at length about the collections and Belfer during the conference. I'm looking forward to putting faces to a lot of the names I see here on ARSClist. 

By the by, I know Syracuse isn't likely to win any Miss America City beauty pageants, but she isn't a complete wasteland.  While I've only lived here a few months, she's managed to grow on me some. I should add that the Landmark Theatre has undergone quite a few renovations of late and is back to being in pretty good shape. During the last one, they expanded the stage and backstage areas to accommodate larger productions. 

Best, 
Patrick

Hi Rainer:

That's actually a great agenda. I've been to most of those places and I think you won't be disappointed. I forgot about Balfour, so there is something to see in Syracuse aside from endless ugly shopping malls and highways. There used to be a good antique store downtown, I forgot where, but back in the early 90's I used an income tax refund to buy my first Victrola there. I also always had luck finding Victrola-fodder (common, well-played, cheap) 78's with music I liked at Syracuse area Salvation Army stores. There was an old movie theater in downtown Syracuse at that time, the ironically named Landmark, broken down and bat-infested, but it had a large screen and semi-working sound system and it was neat to see movies there. One of my favorite live performances was Stephen King reading his horror stories in that creepy theater with real live bats flying around the lights.

In Cooperstown, aside from the Baseball Hall of Fame, down the road is the Farmer's Museum. Worth a visit just to see the "Cardiff Giant":

By the time you get to Rochester, you will have seen more of NY than the vast majority of metro NYC residents.
