Hope you don't mind if I try something new. Taking a trip along a street in the Northside neighborhood of Syracuse, New York. I picked Butternut Street having just seen on the local Syracuse news that the most recent murder in the city occurred there. It's about 20 blocks long and starts in the Little Italy area of the Northside. Downtown starts down Salina in the distance. Diverse racially and quite a few immigrants. Here goes:

1. Starting at the Salina Street intersection (a major north/south artery).



2. St Joseph Hospital



3. New construction on left, old strip center on right



4. Old brick and mortar building harking back to the neighborhoods Italian roots.



5. Cute liquor store (Grand Opening)



6. La Cantina



7. Rubble in the empty lot



8. Oh well, it does get better, but there's grit to be had.



9. There were people on the street.



10.



11.



12. Yard Sale?



13. Bit rough around the edges in places.



14. Looks like school's out.



15. Plywood.



16. Modest working class houses. Probably still affordable.



17. More plywood.



18. Not sure if they are still fixing autos.



19. Trying to spruce up the neighborhood.



20. A couple of apartment complexes.



21. Still heading north.



22. Some bigger single and double family housing and lots.



23. There is one house that likes flags.



24. Another small business section. Looks like pulling teeth pays better than making signs.



25. Looks like a quiet block with nice homes.



26. As we approach the end, a church on the right and fenced yard on the left.



27. Sadly at the end, an attractive old apartment building is boarded up. (Sure use a lot of plywood there, maybe there's a hurricane coming)



Hope you enjoyed this post.

Looking the other way on the same road




The Cathedral in the center of the city




People relaxing on the Cathedral grounds. Looks like some are more relaxed than others.
