In this Summer Issue, we feature a number of stories that take a look at a comprehensive report published last fall by CNY Fair Housing on the state of housing in Syracuse and Onondaga County.
In a special report on a dedicated website — MyHousingMatters.com — students in the Urban Affairs reporting class at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications spent the spring semester finding people directly touched by the report’s identified disparities and putting faces to the data. In this issue, we have devoted a special section to the My Housing Matters report.
This issue also features a personal take on being a proud father in our Fatherhood Series, a reflection on local musician Jeff Houston who recently lost his battle to cancer and an update on Pre-K offerings in city schools.
