True: The New Hartford area is generally expensive by CNY standards--dirt cheap by Cal-NY Metro standards. I believe there are some lower priced homes on Seneca Turnpike--event --god forbid--some trailers.

Area closest to Utica College is good. Whitesboro St. near Psych Ctr horrendous--a terrible shame because much of it is period Canal Town. A few blocks away from Varick St. in any direction alone at nite can be dicey and I'm a big guy.

It has a very good school district as well. Whitesboro is not too far behind and is even more affordable. Clinton has very good schools as well.

Thank you everyone. After looking at apartments in all the areas you all mentioned and then some, we finally found a nice home in Rome, NY. A little farther out than I wanted originally but after seeing the places that were available, we decided that farther out was better.

I'm surprised that Whitesboro, Yorkville, NY Mills, Clinton or New Hartford didn't have anything that was at least decent to very nice.

I live right outside Cornhill, it all depends one your approach on life and how you treat people. I have a gorgeous Victorian home i recently purchased and renovated my neighboors are my security guards they love us and treat us like royalty...even though i am real close to the cornhill line, I dont fear my neighboorhood, I have left to Orlando for vacations 2-3 weeks at a time and NOTHING not even my garbage bins were out of place. I guess it really all depends what kind of family you have...plus just to give you a little food for thought the Utica Schools recieve more grants and fundings and there Magnet programs are excellent compared to the small villages/towns such as new hartford/whitesboro who are cut from funding...Utica can be an awesome place to raise your kids.

Watson Williams and Jones Elementary schools are actually very solid schools and I have heard of good programs in the district.

Utica is a tiny city, the 'ghetto' is only a few blocks.
