The Onondaga Historical Association will run an exhibit in the gallery starting September 12th that will “explore the Italian experience in Syracuse”. They’re looking for a number of items to borrow or have donated for the exhibit, including any images of stores or businesses owned by Italian immigrants on the Northside, copies of the newspaper Risveglio Coloniale, photos of Italian-American students and any artifacts associated with home wine-making, among other items. Check the syracuse.com article for more information.

Over 40 people joined the walk, including business owners, employees of St. Joe’s and residents of the neighborhood. Many thanks to all who participated. We’re looking forward to walking again next Monday!

Kevin Walma and Don Cronk worked together in real estate, renovating and renting apartments, but when they purchased the building at 535 Court Street they weren’t sure what to do with the storefront and all of the abandoned washing machines currently in the space. “Don just said, ‘Hey, I think we can use these. Fix them up, paint them,’” explained Kevin. They hadn’t planned to become business owners, but once everything was in working condition, customers started coming in off the street with bags of laundry.
Their success with The Laundry Room on Court Street brought them to 758 North Salina Street, again as if by accident. The laundromat on the corner of N. Salina and Cawtaba was going out of business and Kevin and Don were interested in purchasing the machines for their Court Street business. Instead, they purchased the entire building, which includes several apartments and the storefront of the 754 Barbershop. The Laundry Room’s second location opened in December of last year and Don and Kevin have been busy continuing with improvements to the entire building and getting better acquainted with the business district. We’re so happy to welcome such hard-working and creative business/property owners into our neighborhood!
