The Northside strives for unity through diversity, maintaining our traditions and promoting family values; we celebrate our history as a home of many cultures.
Syracuse’s Northside has been the home of many nations, starting with the Haudenosaunee as well as providing a gateway for immigrants from Ireland, Germany, Italy, Vietnam, Laos, Bosnia, Sudan and many more to come.
