Just curious about something I have thought about, but what are some neighborhoods in the city that if they were in a bigger city or if the city of Syracuse had more people, would be gentrified or revitalized at a higher rate?

I've always thought Little Italy and the Hawley Green area were prime for gentrification.

Yes, both are a couple that come to mind due to having some investment, but they could definitely see even more investment and revitalization.


Another area I'll throw out there is the Park Avenue area behind Automobile Row(West Genesee Street) and north of Erie Boulevard West.


I also thought about Elmwood around Glenwood/Valley Drive/South Ave and the portion of the Valley between the Valley Plaza and Seneca Turnpike. Both have the bones and some businesses currently in those areas, but have room for more. Perhaps the area of West Onondaga to South Ave through to about Bellevue Ave near the future ShopRite grocery store.

Any others?

Speaking of West Onondaga Street, these are located on there: https://saltcitycoffee.com

https://www.syracuse.com/news/index...._syracuse.html
Some history from another article: Coop Apartment

More history: West Onondaga

Given that it is located just outside of Downtown to the SW and that there are lots that could be developed or structures that could be used again for housing/businesses, it could be an area of new, mixed use, mixed income development that the mayor is looking for.

https://goo.gl/maps/YJ3SsR2aW9o

It is also not too far from University Hill as well, which is down Adams Street.

This is the area that I'm referring to: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0519...6!9m2!1b1!2i38

Given its very close proximity to Downtown and room for improvement in the highlighted area, as well as potential for commercial development in this area of North Geddes Street: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0507...6!9m2!1b1!2i38 within the highlighted area, it could be another area for a mixed development and income area of the city.

That could also help spur development on South Geddes Street south of Erie Boulevard West/the railroad tracks as well. https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0434...6!9m2!1b1!2i38

The bolded area: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0014...7i13312!8i6656

In turn, this could help develop the South Salina Street corridor, which is the same street that this building is on: Sears Building

Businesses on the street in between: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0198...6!9m2!1b1!2i38

Also, in this corridor, a potential use for this building: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0255...7i13312!8i6656

Could be a mixed cultural center/museum similar to this: http://web1.bccnsweb.com/

Which could also house this organization: The Paul Robeson Performing Arts Company

Then, a couple of blocks south, the building on the right could be used for housing for mixed use for families, artists associated with the organization/facility above and for those looking to hone their craft as entrepreneurs at this facility across the street: South Side Innovation Center

https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0227...7i13312!8i6656

Other nearby properties could also be put on the rolls by using said folks as well. There also is potential for more infill on the street as well.

Bolded area: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0183...7i13312!8i6656

Development in that area could connect with development in the West Onondaga to South Avenue area referred to in the last sentence.

In between West Onondaga and Elmwood on South Avenue: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0342...7i13312!8i6656


Also, speaking of the West Onondaga Street corridor, this bank: https://www.pathfinderbank.com/ is eventually opening a branch in this area of the corridor: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0393...7i13312!8i6656

This was mentioned by this regional manager at the bank on a local radio show: https://www.syracuse.com/business-ne...nder_bank.html

This organization is also playing a part in regards to looking towards potential development in the corridor: https://www.jubilee-homes.org/

East Fayette Street is another street that comes to mind. It has seen or is seeing some development in recent years, but again has lots and older structures that could be put to use. It is very close to Downtown and University Hill and runs perpendicular to the East Genesee Street Business District/Corridor: http://university-hill.com/wp-conten...-Brochure4.pdf

This historic church on the left, the former People's AME Zion Church, has plans for a culinary school, but could also be used in a capacity similar to this church in Ontario: Nazrey AME Church | Ontario Museums

https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0485...6!9m2!1b1!2i38

It also could be used for other functions such as a place for young children in the community to learn about STEM opportunities via mentorship with those from Upstate Medical Center and connected with the nearby Community Folk Art center. The STEM aspect comes to mind given that this woman's father was the pastor of that church at one time and her profession, as well as being a graduate of what is now that medical center: Fraser, Sarah Loguen (1850-1933) | The Black Past: Remembered and Reclaimed The family's home was located at this corner: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0470...6!9m2!1b1!2i38 and given that the home isn't there, the former church could serve as a historical location that honors the family and the history in the neighborhood. Her father: Loguen, Jermain Wesley (1813-1872) | The Black Past: Remembered and Reclaimed

Home info: The Freedom Trail in Syracuse and Onondaga County, NY

If you go further down the street, you will notice that it has great potential for infill, especially given the nearby apartments that have been or are being built for students. https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0484...7i13312!8i6656

That will allow for activity, as well as commercial investment in that area of the city, that would serve students and long time residents of the neighborhood.

It would also be nice if this development would come to pass as well: Loguen Crossing | COR Development Company, LLC

Where it would be located: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0496...6!9m2!1b1!2i38

That could also help spur development on South Geddes Street south of Erie Boulevard West/the railroad tracks as well. https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0434...6!9m2!1b1!2i38
Also, development on South Geddes Street would serve an area where the city's Hispanic/Latino community is concentrated, but is also a very culturally diverse area still.

In turn, you may see more development in this area that had development initiated via Syracuse University's Near Westside Initiative/SALT District. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SALT_District

https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0465...7i13312!8i6656 the red building houses this: La Casita | Home as well as apartments slated for artists: https://www.syracusenewtimes.com/apa...ouldnt-afford/

The orange and gray building: SALTQuarters | Artist-in-Residence Program

Others that came to the area and revitalized some properties: https://www.syracuse.com/news/index...._syracuse.html

More development in that area: https://www.homehq.org/about-the-project/

https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0449...7i13312!8i6656

Actually on South Geddes and West Fayette: The Gear Factory Syracuse :: Home

Also, that area is situated in between Downtown and the Tipperary Hill neighborhood, which is known for its pub/restaurants, Burnet Park(inc. the Rosamond Gifford Zoo) and Irish population. West Fayette Street links all 3 together.

Speaking of the highlighted area, this area of Burnet Avenue on its southern end comes to mind as another area: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0520...7i13312!8i6656

There are storefronts where businesses could be and you still have Angotti's Italian restaurant, with the former DeJulio's building now empty.

This little business hub/concentration isn't too far away to the east on the southern edge of Eastwood: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0548...7i13312!8i6656

Some businesses in that area: https://www.dominicksrestaurant.net/
Shiftys COLD BEER - HOT WINGS - LIVE MUSIC
Home - N.Y. Gianni's Bronx Style Pizza - Bronx Style Pizza in Syracuse NY
https://www.yelp.com/biz/rudys-barber-shop-syracuse
https://www.yelp.com/biz/pappys-ice-...orner-syracuse (actually still open)

Another area of potential development in the neighborhood: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0532...7i13312!8i6656
