I started out busking at a weekly farm market in a bank parking lot on Salina Street back in the '90's. They were always able to find a pitch for me and I appreciated it even though the hats were pretty meager. Certainly one of the important things is for you to cover your political bases: make sure you include the police dept. in your planning and it certainly would be helpful if you have contacts with the mayor's office and members of the City Council.
Visit nearby "Busker's Fests," such as those in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and the HarborFest in Owego (Oswego??). Best of luck to you, Syracuse needs an education on the value of street performance!
