Living in Syracuse
Syracuse is located in Central New York—the heart of New York State—approximately 265 miles northwest of New York City, with Boston, Toronto, Buffalo within a few hours travel distance.
"What I enjoy most about Syracuse, NY is its location. If I drive 5 minutes in one direction, I'm in the middle of downtown. If I drive 10 minutes in the opposite direction, I can be at a cider mill, or at a state park, or Onondaga Lake. It's perfect. There's an environment and a vibe for everyone and every day, depending on what you're up for. I am never at a loss for something fun to do when I find some free time."—Sarah K.
Syracuse, NY has something for everyone!
The sports fan can attend hockey, baseball, and football games, including University events at the Dome. If the arts are more your style, catch an award winning show at the Landmark Theatre or make your way to the Syracuse Stage. After you're finished, you can walk the streets of the many different "squares" downtown Syracuse has to offer and explore retail shops and restaurants.
