Welcome to the Inner Harbor of Syracuse. It used to be said that from the Inner Harbor, you could go anywhere in the world. Or anyone from “anywhere in the world” could get here. That’s a bit of an exaggeration; for example, you couldn’t get here, the Bonneville Salt Flats. But then again, someone making that claim about the Inner Harbor wouldn’t need to get to this mineral-rich Utah deposit. Explanation follows.
I ended up in the Inner Harbor in August because I wanted to see the shops
where the Erie Canal tenders had been built. And I’m still working on that. But in the process I stumbled upon
Erie Canal here is today Erie Boulevard. And the sign above relates the upstate NY location to the Utah western surface deposit.
Stop by the visitors center if you are nearby.
