Most recent discussions of holography in AdS_2/CFT_1 have focused on the Schwarzian and JT gravity. However, the AdS dual of SYK is expected to, in addition, contain an infinite tower of massive fields. The interactions for these fields are in principle fixed by the SYK correlation functions. We review the construction of all-point correlation functions in SYK. We comment on the difficulties in finding a coherent description of the bulk tower of fields.
