“A Simple House” in Syracuse


This little house stands at E. Fayette and Westcott, a working class corner in Syracuse. Not like the now rundown spectacular houses just to the south of Genesee, this house was never meant to be more than it is. The carved even lovingly architectural details on the front facade bring ornament and call attention to what is an otherwise modest structure.

    except for the entrance/porch could be a rural structure, so many houses there just getting worn out by use and abuse.
