Auburn Reviews

All Categories
Auburn is a safe place to live however there is a huge lack of jobs. The city night life is lacking due to inadequate public transportation. The houses for sale are overly expensive considering the neighborhoods and up keep of said houses. Auburn could also be more culturally diverse, there is currently only Italian, Chinese, and American food establishments.
Review Auburn
Auburn is small enough to feel safe but large enough to offer diversity and opportunities. The City of Auburn contains a lot of history. It is a beautiful area located in the middle of the fingerlakes and offers urban or rural living. There is SUNY college, and hospital, as well as many surrounding high schools. Auburn offers many diverse employment opportunities as well and is closely located to the city of Syracuse.
Quiet safe neighborhoods, great parks, easy to walk around town. Convenient to Syracuse, Rochester, Ithaca. Easy access to lakes, wine country, hiking trails.
