Throwback Thursday: A stroll through downtown Syracuse over the years

Local News

The Jefferson Hotel in 1927 was sold to Loew’s, and in 1928 the building was torn down and replaced by the Loew’s State Theater. We know it today as the Landmark Theater.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — On this edition of Throwback Thursday, our friends at the Onondaga Historical Association are giving us a glimpse of downtown Syracuse through the years.

Long before the post-war housing boom in the suburbs, and the car-centered lifestyle, downtowns across the nation were where you would found most stores and services as well as business offices.

If you have an idea for something you would like to see on Throwback Thursday, send it to thewebunit@localsyr.com and maybe in a future post, the OHA might have some photos of it to share.
