CNY Legends

Announcing our 2022 Legends!


A Note from The Onondaga Historical Association:

To the Central New York Business Community,
The Onondaga Historical Association (OHA) is proud to endorse the Central New York Business Journal’s (CNYBJ) upcoming commemorative publication, CNY Business Legends. CNYBJ and OHA have had a long collaborative relationship honoring the great history of businesses here in Central New York. Therefore, it was only natural for us to partner on this special report to name businesses that we consider CNY Legends.

The companies that will be honored have impressive histories. Their longevity reflects their ability to successfully navigate an unpredictable economic terrain over the long term and adapt to changing markets while maintaining a relevance that keeps them at the top of their fields. Many of these Legends have weathered world wars, depressions, recessions, and more than one pandemic over the course of their long lives. Commitment to community was another important trait we look for. The honorees will all have an impressive track record of giving back to the community that has helped sustain them.

At OHA, we believe that our common shared history is the foundation of our future together. The CNY Legends have made major contributions to that foundation, and they continue to help lead us into the future. They are part of our community identity and, as such, it’s important to share their stories because they instill pride in place and inspire others to create legacies worthy of the ones these companies have built.

We are happy to partner with CNYBJ to honor wonderful companies and their remarkable histories that have made them all leaders in their respective industries and legends in our community.
