Life in Syracuse, New York

The greater Syracuse area is a mix of amazing natural beauty, culture and a family-friendly lifestyle. Here, the suburban community is made of up several towns and villages with a housing market that offers a great variety —  from the city to the country and everything in between. And, the cost of living is a fraction of that in major metropolitan areas. It is also centrally located and is less than a five hour drive to major cities like New York and Boston.


It's no secret that education is a top priority in New York State. Central New York (CNY) is well-known for its abundance of top-quality school districts. The area also offers great higher education institutions — Syracuse University, Cornell, Rochester Institute of Technology, and a fantastic state university system are just a few examples.

To help ensure success for students, SRC is proud supporter of the Syracuse chapter of Say Yes to Education, a non-profit foundation committed to dramatically increasing high school and college graduation rates for urban students.

Family Life

Life in CNY will redefine your family's idea of what a community can be.
