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.

Many organizations, companies and individuals are trying to prevent cigarette litter. The Ocean Conservancy has gathered statistics about cigarette filter litter as volunteers complete "Marine Debris Data Cards" during the International Coastal Cleanup. It is from this enormous database that we know that cigarette filters are the most frequently littered item in the U.S. and the world. Many beach communities have worked with The Ocean Conservancy to develop litter prevention campaigns (including cigarette butts), and many universities, parks and businesses have anti-litter efforts. In 2002, Keep America Beautiful launched a campaign devoted to cigarette litter. After studying the success of various educational efforts,
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!
