Since the early 1800s, Clinton Square has served as the premier open space and gathering place in Downtown Syracuse.

Downtown East
 

Downtown East

Downtown East is situated around Downtown Syracuse’s largest green space, Fayette Firefighters Memorial Park. The park’s picturesque setting – with trees, benches and a fountain – makes it a peaceful retreat during the spring and summer months. With changing leaves and festive decorations, it’s also a visual treat during the fall and winter. In the 19th century, the surrounding area was an attractive residential district for some of the most prominent families in the community. This is exemplified in the Hamilton White House, established in 1832.
