Hi, we are a couple in our early 30's (no children yet). I'm starting graduate school in SU. We will stay at Syracuse for 1 year. We are looking for a nice place to live - a safe neighborhood, but also a walking distance from coffee shops, restaurants, shopping etc. Also, a place where we will have a bus (or other easy transportation) to get to SU. Our renting budget is about 1000-1200 $ for month.
Will appreciate the help very much...

Most likely Westcott/University/University Hill area. This might help: Syracuse University Apartments - Campus Hill Apartments - Syracuse, New York - Off Campus Student Housing
MapsKrieg - Syracuse, NY - Apartments & Housing For Rent
University Hill Realty LTD
Syracuse University Rent Apartment Housing

You might be fine with Clinton Plaza Apartments near Armory Square. You could catch the bus either at the transfer intersection at South Salina and West Fayette Sts. or at the Warehouse Building owned by SU, as there is a shuttle from there to SU as well. This might help as well: Downtown Syracuse

Thanks for the quick response. What about Hanover Square? Lakefront lofts? Are these areas safe? Are there nice places in a walking distance in Westcott/University/University Hill area?

Most of the sites are for apartments near the campus actually.

Hanover Square is also Downtown and is nice. I'm not sure if there are places within your price range, but there might be.

I'm sure about the Lakefront Lofts, but they are most likely a bit more pricey as well.

Check out Eastwood. http://walkeastwood.org
As safe as any area in the city, and its main business district, James Street, has an independent movie theater, two independent book stores, several small restaurants, a post office, ice cream, convenience stores, banks, gas stations, a cafe that roasts all its own coffee, some of the best pizza and wings (okay, the best pizza is Gianni's, still in Eastwood but down on Burnet near Teall).... the list goes on. Within 1 mile of two huge grocery stores and very near an entire shopping plaza. Wonderful parks, you can golf in the summer and cross-country ski in Sunnycrest Park. And several bus lines. Your rental budget will get you the very best in the area with some to spare. Each year this neighborhood has more and more young couples, with or without young children.
