Pioneer Homes, in Syracuse, New York, was one of the earliest government public housing projects in the United States. Pioneer Homes was completed in 1941 and remains fully occupied even as another nearby public housing project was demolished. The project consists of 607 apartments, which include both row houses and 3-story walk-ups, all constructed of masonry with brick exteriors in an early modern style. It is bordered by East Adams Street, Renwick Avenue, Taylor Street, and South Townsend Street.
After a rash of drive-by shootings, the Syracuse Common Council voted in 2005 to gate off four out of five entrances to reduce traffic and crime.
