Utica Mayor Rob Palmieri Vows to Take Back Cornhill’s Dudley Avenue ‘D Block’
The D-block is considered the most crime-ridden portion of the city. D Block is the 1500 block of Dudley Ave between James and Arthur.
The first step in the change: drop the name D block. Says Palmieri, “our street is called Dudley Avenue…. Renewal begins when we remember that Cornhill is our neighborhood, not ‘the hood.'”
Do you think that we can band together as a community and improve the blighted sections of our community?
