Westcott Neighborhood

I’ve lived in the Westcott Neighborhood of Syracuse since 1994 and with my wife, the late Judith Meighan, raised our family here. I have been dubbed – unofficially – the neighborhood historian. In that capacity I’ve organized house tours, neighborhood tours, architecture seminars, and I have frequently lectured and written about the history, architecture an people of this wonderful place to live. This page provides links to some these efforts.

A neighborhood highlight for me was when I was named Grand Marshall of the annual Westcott Street Cultural Fair in 2013. I led the parade alongside Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner and Congressman Dan Maffei, a Westcott native.
