Great place, very friendly city and people. Very well managed and clean. Oneonta is home to an ever changing scene of coffee shops, bars, and has a small mall on the southside.
My family moved away a year ago so I don't think much has changed since then. It's a decent town that's safe, family friendly, and has good schools. The only bad thing is that a lot of the rentals are for students only since its a college town with two colleges.
What a dump. Cigarette butts everywhere. Trash and broken glass everywhere. Puke everywhere. The shop keepers on Main St can't even sweep their sidewalks in the morning? It's been a few years since I was in this city and things have really changed. It used to be such a fresh bright place. Now it looks like a slum. Filthy. No pride in place there.

A small town that yet is the biggest town in the area. It is a college town for two universities large universities bring life to the town. Also very close to historic Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame and breaths life into the surrounding areas.
Oneonta has so much diversity. There is nice little ma and pa owned shops up and down historical main street. The views of the hills is amazing. There are several job opportunities in the area.
I like Oneonta because I love a small city with forests around it, you can walk around and take the view in. during fall when the leaves change color
College town, nice change of pace from a small town or big city. Has a lot of options for entertainment; from eating out to bars to shopping.
It's a college town, so it's bustling during the school year and pretty quiet during the holiday breaks. Unfortunately, just because there are a lot of young adults here nine months out of the year does not mean that there are a lot of options when it comes to shopping. That is the reason for my 3-star rating.
It's okay. Lots of stoners I guess and there's not much to do but it's New York , you know? Either go to the city or prepare for a heckton of trees.
Nothing too crazy. Just a calm little college town. Considered a poor town but your experiences here will be whatever you make them.
A smaller town that manages to have a big town feel. Kind of stuck in the middle of nowhere yet close to larger metropolitan areas (hour and a bit to Albany, hour and a bit to Syracuse). Mix of a college town (two universities in town) and farm life (all you find on the outskirts), providing a fairly diverse population. Also very close to historic Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame. If you're used to small towns, Oneonta can give you a bigger city experience without going too far out of your comfort zone. If you're used to more urban/populated areas, then it can give you a break from all that without too many sacrifices in conveniences you may be used to.
Oneonta is a great place to work and live. The small town atmosphere is safe and reassuring. Family oriented feeling and definitely where I want to raise children.
The town of is Oneonta is okay. I wish there was more to do, maybe there is alot to do to new comers, but considering I've lived here my entire life it gets old.
Oneonta is a place that has almost everything you need close by. Although it is a small town, around 15,000 people, there is quite a lot to do. You can rollerskate and play laser tag, go shopping downtown or at the mall, watch movies and go to the many excellent restaurants. The lack of real traffic is pretty amazing, especially considering there are two colleges here. Almost everywhere you go has free parking, which is incredible! The people are really friendly, too. Some areas are less than perfect, but that is to be expected. If you are determined to find the bad, you can find it anywhere, after all. It is a great place to raise your family. Housing is not cheap, and neither are taxes or the cost of living. But compared to many other places in NY, it is quite affordable. I have been here over two years and fell in love with it not long after I came. Check it out, especially in the summer, you won't be disapointed!
Oneonta is a great place to live and raise a family! It is challenging hams someone who is young because while there are things to do, they are targeting at the college population and those with children.
Few options for food, shopping, and healthcare. Cute town, but very tiny. Long drives to get anywhere. Beautiful and scenic.
The town is very cute and plenty to do. Two colleges give it a young hip vibe. There are baseball games to see at the park and plenty of little local shops.

The people are friendly and polite. The town is very clean. Not very heavy populated. The schools are amazing.
Nice little college town; great place to raise kids. Features many outdoor activities and relatively close to many more urban seeking adventures.
The city of Oneonta N.Y. is a great place to live and the schools are the best in the area. I grew up not far away from Oneonta ny whole life. This city has the best restaurants and the night life is one you will remember. i would to see better housing for lower income individuals. Such as more apartment complexes.
