Ohhh, Ahhh, over the Niagara Mohawk Building in Syracuse

As I was driving up Franklin Street Thursday night I saw yet another one of my favorite buildings dressed up for Christmas.

This is the most beautiful, art deco building I’ve seen, the Niagara Mohawk building in Syracuse. My Grandpa used to work here when it was Niagara Hudson and then Niagara Mohawk.  It will always be the NiMo building to me, but the company is now called National Grid.

And I’m sorry I haven’t been around visiting your blogs!  Hopefully Monday!

    Those are just awesome buildings! I really love that last one. Art Deco is one of my favorite styles.
