South Salina Street

South Salina was originally a wagon trail connecting the salt springs near Onondaga Lake with Onondaga Castle in Onondaga Valley.

By the early 1900s, the portion of South Salina just south of the Erie Canal had became the business and commercial center of the entire Central New York region.

Today, many of South Salina's buildings are vacant.
