When we look for a place to buy or rent, we ask lots of questions - How close is it to work? How close is it to the highways? How close is it to the grocery store? How close is it to church? How close is it to the bus stop? What are the schools like in the area? Are the people friendly? Any place to go get a pizza, deli, whatever?
 - So we've provided pages and links to answer these questions.
And, often times the question on 'How safe, really, is that neighborhood?' comes up when people are looking to buy a house or rent. And we here in Court-Woodlawn are going to address that by posting the crime stats for Syracuse, which shows our area(located north of Grant Blvd to the city line). Please check it out on our Real Estate page, along with all the other info and links. 

You'll see - Court-Woodlawn is a good place to live.

Hello - And Welcome to our page created to keep you informed on the Court-Woodlawn neighborhood.

The Court-Woodlawn Task Force was created to be a voice in protecting, revitalizing and promoting our section in the City of Syracuse.

Court-Woodlawn is one of Syracuse's "Best Kept Secrets", located on the North Side of Syracuse, bordered by Grant Blvd on the South, Teall Ave. to the East, Hiawatha Blvd on the West, all stretching to the Northern City Line at Lyncourt. We share with pride our attractive, affordable housing, safer neighborhoods and good schools. We're close to the hospitals, main bus lines, and great shopping, with Wegmans, Tops, and Destiny just five minutes away from most of us. Same with houses of worship, Schiller Park and Pool, playgrounds, little leagues, and of course we are ten minutes from SU and downtown’s restaurants, theaters and entertainment.

Want to get away? We’re five minutes from the AMTRAK station, Thruway@81, and ten minutes from the airport.


Our Patch 'n Paint program has gotten off to a great start as we worked on Worden Ave.  We intend to reach out to Court-Woodlawn blocks to revitalize.  Let us know if you're interested in having us visit your Court-Woodlawn neighborhood.

We have helped inject over $200,000 in residential neighborhood building projects with a floating 1% loan Program from Home Headquarters.
