Crime & Safety
Syracuse is very good for college students. If you ae a medical student then it is definitely the right place to stay. There is many hospitals there and the chances of you getting a job is a lot more likely. It is a cross between a rural and city area. There is a little bit of everything for everyone. The night life is centered more around Syracuse University and a little bit downtown. It is also very diverse as you will meet people from all over the world! The cost of living varies as you go through out the city. There are really some decent price ranges for every budget. There are a pretty decent amount of restaurants, and fun things to do. It also has Destiny USA which is a mall that was updated roughly 5 or so years ago. Syracuse, in all is a starter city and if you are about your business it will get you to the next step!
Syracuse is on the up and up! The restaurant scene is growing and becoming more eclectic, craft breweries are popping up every where, and local small business is in. Theres something to do almost every weekend for every kind of interest. And you're always just a short drive away from all sorts of outdoor activities. Although we still have a long way to go, lots of bad areas still, overall since I've lived here syracuse has been on the rise
Syracuse is a very beautiful area in New York. There is plenty to do, whether it be going to exhilarating Syracuse sporting events or visiting the newly built amphitheater near Onondaga Lake. I have lived in Syracuse my whole life there and you definitely get a little taste of each season weather wise. I highly recommend visiting Syracuse if you have never been before!
