cool things with wheels since 2006
The 64th annual trek to Cazenovia NY will be here at the end of July. Caz is a little closer to the home of Franklin... Only about 20 miles from Syracuse.Greater Syracuse even has a housing track/development called "Franklin Park"Before the company went bust, they were to move out to the suburbs, and they planned a development near it for workers. Carrier Corp. moved into the inner city plant for a while, then acquired the land that Franklin was going to use as a plant. In the last 10 years, most of the plant has been torn down, and production moved out of state and country.
Dang, Carrier outsourced all the work to Mexico or China or something
Darn, my original long winded response didnt to you... Yes, when UTC, United Technologies, bought up Carrier, they started to move things out of NY. They tore down massive parts of the plant, Syracuse was the original HQ and main plant for Carrier. Most of the campus sits there, as vacant land. Carrier's 2nd location, remember from the original comment that they used the old Franklin plant in the city. https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-76.0828658,2319m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=enYou can see the area known as "Franklin Park" to the east of the plant. Although originally envisioned in the 30's for a Franklin employees development, most of the are was not developed until the early 60's.
your original response... didn't what? I read it, understood it, and posted it.
I answered your "Dang, Carrier outsourced all the work to Mexico or China or something" question with a long reply... Multiple links to maps and pictures... I must have hit something wrong when I thought I clicked on "Publish"
Ah. nope, you did everything right, except the words "didn't to you" made no sense. Well, not in English. It's really amazing how many companies have come and gone, laid down foundations and moved away, went out of business, etc etc and nothing remains of all the work and manufacturing but some locations, empty, abandonded, and left behind when corporate profits were used up.
