Sen. Chuck Schumer Flexes Political Muscle to Redevelop Vacant Gas Stations

  • Sen. Chuck Schumer says redevelopment of these properties is long overdue.

Senator Chuck Schumer stopped by Syracuse to urge the owners of three abandoned gas stations at a key gateway to work with the city to sell or redevelop the properties.  All three are at the corner of East Brighton Ave. and East Seneca Turnpike.  The one at 1001 E. Brighton has been vacant for 15 years.
