Renovations have slowly been continuing on an historic home on Syracuse’s east side.
The Babcock-Shattuck House stands at the gateway to Syracuse’s Westcott neighborhood. It’s also a rare empty property in an otherwise vibrant area.
It was built around 1895 and last served as a home for Jewish war veterans. It's been empty since the late 1980's.
Now, the University Neighborhood Preservation Association is working to convert the vacant property into four condos.
