Capturing Syracuse second by second

Check out 75 video and photo stories throughout the Salt City as they unfold one summer morning.

On Tuesday, Aug. 3, student journalists in a news writing and reporting class from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications fanned out across the five regions of Syracuse, listening to, watching and reporting on the stories surrounding them.

The 75 video and photo stories captured second-by-second that morning share a slice of Syracuse that's been dubbed, "Secs in the City."

A specially designed website displays the features with an interactive map and allows you to search by neighborhood or by topic.

The story topics ranged from the basketball shot clock historic marker in Armory Square to how to pour the perfect pint at Coleman's Pub in Tipperary Hill to the art of digging graves at Oakwood Cemetery. More stories below include:
