The city of Syracuse says it will seize the shuttered Cafe Garzone, a restaurant and bar that dates back to 1921, if the Garzone family does not pay at least $32,000 in back taxes by the end of today. The threat has Cynthia Garzone, Charles's daughter, taking to social media asking for donations from friends and the general public to "save the cafe." "It's devastating," she said. "And it is breaking my heart." […]Tim Carroll, director of mayoral initiatives for the city, said back taxes are not the city's only concern with the property. He said the property has been cited for many code violations, many related to illegal dumping of construction debris on the property. "They have ignored every tax bill and code violation since 2006," Carroll said. [Syracuse]
