Cayuga Heights Reviews
Overall, I am very lucky to live in this part of Ithaca, with low crime rates and a school right next door. You can feel safe walking home alone at night here. However, many people here are pretentious, believing they are more elite than others because of their jobs.
Ithaca feels very safe, and police are competent and quick to respond. Even with two major college campuses, the city is safe and peaceful, and the community feels very strong and connected. Our downtown and commons areas are vibrant and public services are plentiful, effective, and in good condition.
