Great video!

Yes, the University neighborhood area did look nice when I was there last month--I like the Westcott St. neighborhood most!

I'm glad to see a Syracuse neighborhood finally market itself in a way that wouldn't be done otherwise and there are some others I think that could do the same thing.

Also, what some people may not realize is that the neighborhoods in this area, from around Westcott east to the city line and south of East Genesee rival solidly to even upper middle suburban neighborhoods in terms of median household income, while maintaining a visible level of cultural diversity.

Some information: Census Tract 004600 in Onondaga County, New York (click on the census block groups on/under the map for more specific information)

Census Block Group 003500-1 in Onondaga County, New York

Census Block Group 004500-1 in Onondaga County, New York

Census Block Group 004500-2 in Onondaga County, New York

Census Block Group 005601-1 in Onondaga County, New York

Census Block Group 004500-3 in Onondaga County, New York (has some student rentals, but family median HH income just under $87,000)

Census Block Group 004400-2 in Onondaga County, New York (same as above and why the overall median HH income is low, but for families it is a little over $171,000 according to this source)

If you include Le Moyne College on the eastern edge of the city/the DeWitt town line, besides the northernmost census block group in the census tract above, you have this census block group near that campus: Census Block Group 003602-2 in Onondaga County, New York

Something I just realized about the census block groups listed and those in the census tract is that most have a median household income above the county, metro and national median income figures. A couple are just below and a couple are skewed by student rentals.

I was thinking in terms of schools, if people don't go to these public schools in the areas listed: The Syracuse City School District | Syracuse, NY

The Syracuse City School District | Syracuse, NY

The Syracuse City School District | Syracuse, NY

It seems like kids from those neighborhoods attend these schools: Holy Cross School

CBA Syracuse

Manlius Pebble Hill School: A Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 Private School near Syracuse, New York
These options are very close to the neighborhood/area.

These schools seem to be next in line: Welcome to Bishop Grimes:Home - Bishop Grimes

The Syracuse City School District | Syracuse, NY

Syracuse Academy of Science Charter School Home

Bishop Ludden Junior/Senior High School

I'm not sure if area kids may go to other schools, but it appears that these are the private/charter/magnet school options that people tend to go with.

Here is another video of a neighborhood just east of Syracuse University's South Campus not too far from the area in the original post: OCNA - About | Outer Comstock Neighborhood Association (OCNA) - Syracuse, New York (I'd say that the area of the neighborhood around and east of Jamesville Avenue/south of East Colvin would be the best bet)


For those that don't know, this newer development is in that neighborhood and has seen a little bit more development pick up: Xavier Woods Homes


A bus route that goes through the neighborhood: https://www.centro.org/docs/default-...l.pdf?sfvrsn=6


If you want to take the bus to Downtown, you can connect at SU's Main Campus, then take this bus: Connective Corridor – Schedule and Map


Connective Corridor


If you are an SU employee, you could take advantage of this program as well: Guaranteed Mortgage Program | RealEstate


The neighborhood is covered under the program: http://realestate.syr.edu/wp-content...ProgramMap.jpg (the orange area around the previously suggested area) It also covers the area in the original post, as well as Downtown and areas of the Near West Side that the University was involved in trying to revitalize.

Some history behind the program: https://news.syr.edu/2007/07/syracus...town-syracuse/


Le Moyne College appears to have a program as well, but there doesn't appear to be a map for the coverage area under their program: http://www.lemoyne.edu/Portals/0/Bfm...mmary-2017.pdf


Le Moyne's program likely covers portions of the Salt Springs and Meadowbrook neighborhoods also on the city's East Side. A couple of examples of homes in that general area: https://www.trulia.com/p/ny/syracuse...14--1104683112
Census Block Group 004600-5 in Onondaga County, New York
Census Block 004600-5-009 in Onondaga County, New York


1025 Salt Springs Rd, Syr, NY 13224
Census Block Group 003602-2 in Onondaga County, New York
Census Block 003602-2-010 in Onondaga County, New York


Some Le Moyne employment: https://lemoyne.interviewexchange.co...LMM1/index.jsp

Also, another thing to consider is that while there would be some reservations in regards to schools, besides the SCSD Say Yes to Education program as an option, there is also the Remitted Tuition Benefit that an employee of either institution could use in order to send children to college at a reduced cost. You could also use the education benefit available to you as an employee as well.
