Syracuse is home for me, so I'm not biased at all! Phenomenal food and craft beer scene. Small enough city to get around easily with most everything you would want. Eclectic neighborhood pockets all over town that are very quaint and unique. There is a real sense of cohesive community throughout downtown Syracuse, but the City has its struggles like any other location.

Syracuse is a great place to live. Everyone is welcoming and helpful. There are many great aspects all across Syracuse. Any activity in mind, Syracuse has that! From country woods to city streets there is everything for everyones needs!
Syracuse os very affordable place to live at, quiet, not much is going on. I like Syracuse, because I am used to living here and all my friends are here. Pretty much close to the attractions outside, but kind of far from big cities, about 5 hours from New York City, but still not too bad.Wish it had more attractions and things to do for young generation!
