syracuse south side

On Syracuse's Southside, a 3 acre urban farm is growing fresh produce on the former site of nearly abandoned apartments. While Brady Farm sits in an area of high concentrated poverty, it's working towards change in more ways than just supplying accessible and affordable food. As a part of City Limits' series "On the Front Lines," Katie Zilcosky spent the day at Brady Farm learning about its larger goal.

"On The Front Lines" is made possible by the Central New York Community Foundation.

  Long-time advocates of Syracuse’s south side are clearly welcoming the news about plans to finally open a full service supermarket in the impoverished neighborhood. PriceRite will begin construction this spring on a 35,000 foot store at the corner of South and Bellevue avenues.
