What are some neighborhoods that you feel aren't necessarily bad or are struggling, but could be better than what they are in terms of attracting young professionals/families, etc.? I'll start off with some: Walkable Eastwood
Eastwood Neighborhood Association
Eastwood, Syracuse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
City of Syracuse -> TNT Tomorrow's Neighborhoods Today

Court-Woodlawn Task Force

Westcott, Syracuse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Westcott Theater
Westcott East Neighborhood Association
Westcott Street Cultural Fair
Westcott Community Center

Home - Lincoln Hill Neighborhood Association, Syracuse, NY

Prospect Hill
Prospect Hill Homes - Syracuse Picture Gallery

This isn't to say that other neighborhoods can't do so, but some neighborhoods could get there faster than others. City of Syracuse

I'd like to see a nice cohesive corridor in Albuquerque along Central Ave between Old Town, Downtown, and Nob Hill. It's about a 4-5 mile stretch that has pockets of vibrancy, charm, character, and eclectic places including some nostalgic relics of old Route 66. There are just too many dicey gaps in between of vacancies, rundown areas, and old motels. There's a lot of potential to be had though. A streetcar would make a big improvement.

Albuquerque's Central Corridor is a very unique area, and I feel that the city should be making more of an effort with it, rather then supporting Mesa Del Sol type developments on the fringe of the city. A light rail or street car line down central from downtown and then north on Louisiana to the ABQ Uptown area. This would probably designate a corridor that is prime for redevelopment, and could do very well if given the effort.
