I found a survey disk I’d never seen before the other day.2015-10-13 16.54.34-2 It’s right out in the open in a place I’ve been before, so I’m surprised this was the first time I’d noticed it.2015-10-13 16.54.34-1Who knew the City of Syracuse did survey monument disks? I didn’t. Googling for a while didn’t turn up any information.

(I thought I had geolocation turned on but apparently not. I should go take new pictures sometime with it enabled. Anyway the disk is here.)

    Looks to me like the stones at the top spell “ESPC” but I’m not sure of that and can’t find a relevant meaning for “ESPC”.

    The one relevant Google hit I found looking for something on Syracuse survey monuments is on page 3 of this parking lot plan set showing a monument at the corner of Pearl Street and Belden Ave. — but I looked there and didn’t find it.
