About the SALT District and the Near Westside Initiative

Branding itself as a distinct "neighborhood within a neighborhood" the SALT District of Syracuse's the Near Westside neighborhood has adopted a colorful logo and brand identity of "Syracuse. Arts. Life. Technology." The acronynm SALT is a reference to the salt production industry that helped put Syracuse in the map and led to the nickname "the Salt City." Within this neighborhood, the premise that art and culture can unite to create a revitalized community is being tested and is proving to be true.
