Sleepwalking Through History is a blog dedicated to exploring the lives and stories of the people and events which have shaped the struggling but vibrant city of Syracuse, New York.
People's views of the city obviously differ, and tend towards the extremes. But with soaring highs and doldrum lows, I've found that to say Syracuse is one thing - good or bad - fails to do justice to the city and its people.
My name is Chris Sinatra. I am a lifelong resident of upstate New York, and received history degrees from Syracuse University and SUNY Oswego. I truly love how history can tell us who we were, why we are and where we're going.
In writing the blog, I will try to be as fair as possible. Please contact me if you think I'm flagging in that pledge, or if you have any questions, compliments or story ideas at email@example.com.
