View 195: Clinton Square by Day

The last time I shared a photo of the historic Syracuse Savings Bank at Clinton Square it was during blue hour.  This building is just as impressive during the golden hour.

As much as I have shown you Clinton Square in Syracuse, New York over the last year, I thought I would show you some of its history.  Back in the late 1800’s, the Erie Canal went directly through Clinton Square.  Below is a photo from that time period used as an information plaque with what Clinton Square looks like today.

    Blue vs. golden hour, I can’t decide which I like best. I do love the warm colors in this set, and great shot of the last image.
