Meadowbrook is a Syracuse, New York neighborhood, located in the southeastern corner of the city.
Meadowbrook, on the far eastern limits of the City, is primarily a residential neighborhood, named for the cement embanked brook that runs through the center of the neighborhood. The brook allows for run-off from the Barry Park water shed area. Its borders include Salt Springs and Springfield Roads to the north, Westmoreland and Cumberland Avenues to the west and the Town of Dewitt to the south and east.
The area contains many smaller homes built post-World War II as well as larger and earlier homes. It is often referred to as “the suburb in the city” because of its suburban-style housing. Approximately eighty percent of the housing in this neighborhood is owner-occupied, about twice the citywide average.
Complimenting the residential nature of this neighborhood, Meadowbrook hosts several small businesses located primarily along East Genesee Street between Brookford and Kimber Roads. These include the typical neighborhood drugstore, gas station, pizza shop, auto repair shop, dry cleaner, and consignment clothing store.
Meadowbrook is a frequently used street for runners, skaters, and bikers. Residents also use the tennis courts at Homer Wheaton Park.
Le Moyne College, Syracuse's second-largest college, is located in Meadowbrook's northeast corner. Nottingham High School is located on East Genesee Street, near the center of the neighborhood. There are two primary schools: H.W. Smith School, and Solace Elementary School. Manlius Pebble Hill, a private primary and secondary school is located near the neighborhood, in De Witt.
There is not much retail located in Meadowbrook. Nottingham Plaza (with about 10 small stores, including Ace Hardware and Breugger's Bagels) and P&C Plaza are in its southwest corner. Just east of Meadowbrook, in DeWitt, exists Shoppingtown Mall, one of the three largest malls in the region. Just off Meadowbrook is the Syracuse Real Food Co-op, Syracuse's only cooperatively owned grocery store.
