So how much can you accomplish in a 60-minute lunch break in downtown Syracuse?
You can sit on a bench and eat the lunch you packed, a ham-and-cheese sandwich and a baggie of baby carrots chased with a can of Arnold Palmer Zero, and thrill at how chilled your brand new Igloo lunch bag kept the whole package.
You can stand for a minute and watch the dancing waters of the fountain of Clinton Square, somehow devoid of any waders on this hot and muggy Monday at 1:15 p.m.
You can walk across South Salina Street to Hanover Square and watch the calmer waters of a brick fountain, built of sturdy brown blocks, a much different sight than its cousin across the street.
You can continue your walk down Warren Street and up to Columbus Circle. There you’ll find another fountain, at the base of a rather tall monument built to honor Christopher Columbus.
This one is so high, in fact, I had to take two photos with my iPhone 4 to show you the whole thing.
Afterward, I still had enough of my first lunch hour left to stop off at a Dunkin’ Donuts to buy a large unsweetened iced tea with lemon and get back to my work station with minutes to spare.
What is the most fountains you’ve ever seen during a lunchtime walk? What kind of lunch do you like to pack to bring to work? Do combine lunch and walking during your workday?
