I don’t know about “terrible”, as it has seen some revitalization, but it has stalled out a bit.

Some parts, yes, but much of it buts up near I-690 and is in walking distance to Downtown and University Hill. So, some actually live there for its proximity.

Here is an example of home construction taking place on the city's South Side: https://www.facebook.com/MsHotep/videos/544037150239437

This is the organization involved: https://www.jubilee-homes.org/

I believe this is a street view of the location: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0315...7i16384!8i8192

It looks like the area has potential. What caused the destruction?

In that area, there wasn’t any destruction, per se, but like many urban, “inner city” neighborhoods, there was disinvestment in terms of people moving to the suburbs, government funding or homes sitting vacant. However, organizations like Jubilee Homes and Home Headquarters are building in areas where homes were torn down or refurbishing properties to bring them up to a higher standard.

its just a demographic there that is prone to crime.
I am 6'1, 240, in top shape, and some of the druggies there like to challenge me from time to time when I walk around. I just laugh them off. Still, the stupidity of these people amazes me. That is why I avoid this area.
Remember that older, 90 plus year old that was killed in her apartment?
that was not far from Hawley and Green. Maybe a few blocks away.
Young women, demographic, killed her.
Just stay away from they area.
Downtown too.
Syracuse is a fun city, but there are too many bad apples in the city itself and it won't change anytime soon.

Are you familiar with the area in the video? There are actually quite a few homeowners nearby and while it has issues, there is also a sense of community there that you might not know about, if you aren’t familiar with some of the people in that area. There are people working to make things better, which is the point of the thread.

By the way, the location in the video isn’t close to where that incident occurred, which was in a problem building due to the lack of action by the landlord.

Also, the city varies in terms of neighborhoods. So, it isn’t any different from most decent sized American cities.
