This week, a home heavily damaged by fire and neglect was demolished through the Greater Syracuse Land Bank. Before it came down, all salvageable materials such as doors and moldings were removed for reuse. Eventually, a playground will be installed in its place by Hopeprint.
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.

Monday Mile Recap

Yesterday, we took part in Healthy Monday Syracuse by walking the Monday Mile around St. Joseph’s Hospital. 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!
This Thursday, Northside residents will have two opportunities to experience the recommended alternatives for the I-81 Viaduct Project.
