The character of a place is written in the stories of the people who live there, and no one knows this better than Dick Case. For fifty years, his "Neighbors" columns have chronicled the ups and downs of the Syracuse community, bringing into the spotlight the names, traditions and landmarks that might otherwise have slipped through the cracks of history. From heartwarming stories of neighbors' good deeds and lovers reunited after war to the tragedies of unsolved murders and abandoned children, Case presents an intimate look at the families, friends and neighbors who call Syracuse home.
