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.

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

I drove through East Liverpool, Ohio many years ago, and thought it was a poster child of the decline in industrial Appalachia. Here's the Wiki entry:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Liverpool,_Ohio

Had a peak population of over 26,000 in 1970, now less than 11,000.

What brought the city back to my attention was a picture of an East Liverpool couple who overdosed in a car with their 4 year old son in the back.

Anyway, here's a bunch of pics from the around city:

Residential




























Downtown area






















Finally an abandoned brewery. http://abandonedonline.net/locations...ewing-company/

I happened upon a news item from Syracuse about a multiple stabbing at a bar on the Northside. The building in the report looked familiar, so I checked out the Syracuse post in this thread (post #221), and found the place in pic #6. It was called La Cantina when the google pic was taken. Yikes!

I can see the similarities.

A few pics from Colorado Springs, CO.


Aerial view of the metro and Pike's Peak.




The Luxury Resort Broadmoor ( https://www.broadmoor.com/ )






Row of residences from the front.



And from the back.




I guess a set of rows trailing off down the hill.




A church under renovations 2014.



All done in 2015.




The Pioneer Museum




Seems like a hectic place.




I didn't know Goth is a religion.




Part of downtown.




Finally, I wish I knew the story behind the leg.

Going on the opposite side of the world for this next set. Did some exploring of Busan, South Korea ( use to be called Pusan ). It's the 2nd largest city in Korea and definately has a lot of talls. Here's a link for more info:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Busan

Now for some pics

Starting with one of the main intersections with a 360 look in the next three pics.








Crossing a couple of bridges






I'm not sure what the zoning laws are like, but two of the buildings in this pic look a bit out of place.




Then I checked out an overhead view of the same neighborhood and noticed half of the buildings on the left side of the pic above are gone. I would guess they're making room for more scrapers.




I noticed there were several areas in the city with similar "urban renewal" going on.

Before:



After:




Seems the google trucks/bikes didn't get to all the little byways and alleyways in the city, but I was able to tour many of the side streets. Here are some of the small commercial and residential lanes.

Big Church




Brick




Brick & stone










Not sure how long the places in the last pic are going to last. This is going on in the next block:




Mmmmmm Pizza



New vs Old




I read somewhere that there really aren't any "slums" in South Korea, but there are some shabbier districts. These tend to be up the hillsides much like Brazil's favellas.

Kind of tough to find these places on Google, but I did get into a couple.

Not sure what that traffic sign means.







There's that sign again, and a flag, and a barber's pole, and what looks like a Christmas tree in the upper right corner.




Finally, would you prefer a cup of coffee (left) or go a couple of rounds with the local champ (right)?
