COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION

Syracuse, New York is located in the center of New York State. Education, convenience, and housing are the major benefits of life in Syracuse. Several top rated public educational schools in places like Fayetteville Manlius and Jamesville Dewitt are under 20 minutes away. When you would like to get away for the weekend, an easy drive four hours or so will have you in New York City or Toronto, Canada. Syracuse is also a short trip to the Finger Lake Wineries. What sets the Syracuse real estate market apart from most other major cities in New York State is its level of affordability.

St Joseph s Health is less than 10 minutes away from the Syracuse Hancock International Airport. Syracuse's top employers are primarily in higher education, research, health care, and services; some high-tech manufacturing remains. University Hill is Syracuse's fastest growing neighborhood, fueled by expansions by Syracuse University and Upstate Medical University (a division of the State University of New York), as well as dozens of small medical office complexes.

The City of Syracuse maintains over 170 parks, fields, and recreation areas, totaling over 1,000 acres (4.0 km2).[61] Burnet Park includes the first public golf course in the United States (1901) and Rosamond Gifford Zoo. Other major parks include Thornden Park, Schiller Park, Sunnycrest Park, Onondaga Park and Kirk Park. There are 12 public pools, two public ice rinks, and two public nine-hole golf courses in the city.

Right outside the city proper, along the east side and north end of Onondaga Lake, is Onondaga Lake Park. The adjacent Onondaga Lake Parkway is closed to vehicular traffic several hours on Sundays during the summer months, so it can be used for walking, running, biking, and rollerblading. During the holiday season, the park hosts Lights on the Lake, a two-mile (3.2 km) drive-through light show.
