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. There are two National Register Historic Districts: North Salina Street and Hawley-Green. The Sedgwick/Highland/James area is also a Local Preservation District. Northside business districts are being revitalized and neighborhood groups throughout the area work effectively to enhance city living. The Northside includes Schiller Park, the Regional Farmers' Market, Alliance Bank Stadium, and the Intermodal Transportation Center. To learn more about the Northside, click here.

Syracuse Neighborhood Action Conference
This day-long conference to build the capacity of city neighbors, unify our voices, and increase our influence as a community was held on Saturday, October 22, 2011 at Le Moyne College. There were a variety of educational and informative workshops for neighborhood organizations, grassroots groups and individuals who want to positively impact their communities!
Syracuse’s neighborhoods are the focus of a vibrant and involved citizenry. The City is as strong as the commitment and dedication of its leadership – from the Southside Neighborhood Action Group’s Block Captains to the volunteers who help clean our parks every Earth Day to the teachers who mold our future leaders and the Police and Firefighters who maintain our safety. The diverse associations throughout Syracuse add immeasurably to civic life and are constantly working to make Syracuse a better place to live, work, learn, play and raise a family.
