Fun Fact about the Syracuse area …did you know…
…that during the 1950’s and 1960’s, Syracuse’s downtown area was a booming retail hub and the holidays were no exception! Holiday shoppers would venture downtown to enjoy festive decorations and partake in activities such as riding the monorail in E.W. Edwards’ toy department & visiting with Santa at Dey Brothers Department store. Besides Edwards & Dey’s, visitors shopped at Three Sisters, McCrory’s, Witherall’s, the Addis Company, Flah & Co. and so many more! There was always time to stop for a brownie a la mode in Dey’s basement restaurant – the Erie Room. The holiday season begins downtown with the opening of the Art Mart, located in the City Hall Commons on E. Washington Street.
