The State Tower Building excites the eye and the imagination. Notice the three levels of ever-lighter bricks at your eye travels upward.
Fancy and Groucho, Syracuse's pair of peregrine falcons, successfully raise a brood every spring at the top of this urban cliff. USA Datanet, major tenant of the building, helps support the annual project including a live cam which is well worth bookmarking:
Fancy starts investigating the box by late March and lays around 4 eggs by early April. As they incubate Groucho plays a major role, and they both feed and teach the eyeses to fly and hunt. It is an exciting time in the skies over Syracuse.
Kodak in Rochester plays a similar role for their pair, and their watchers.
