Syracuse transplant Max Puglisi fell in love with his city after fostering a community of creativity at downtown jam sessions.

Max Puglisi spent three years in the city of Syracuse before he started living in it.

While studying music industry at Syracuse University, Puglisi didn’t like the city he was in. Once he finally left the Hill his senior year, though, he said he fell in love.

“It never really seemed like anything was going on here until I got down there,” said Puglisi, who grew up in Rochester. “And then, all of a sudden, these past two years, Syracuse has blown up in terms of culture.”
