I think some people worry that newcomers would think all of Syracuse looks like the Southside and judge Syracuse based only on the Southside so they want newcomers to avoid the area at all costs. I guess it's some of that shame thing; we don't want people to see the areas of our lives that don't look so perfect.

However, strathmore is a really wonderful area and I think you will enjoy living there. The first post in this thread connects you to another thread with the neighborhood association. I would connect with them as they would probably be able to connect you right in with your area neighbors and other events.
Exactly! Syracuse is just like any other major city center in the US.

I have noticed that it seems like East of I-81 is nicer than West of I-81, but even on the Western half, the neighborhoods that touch the city limits are nice like Strathmore, the Far Westside(inc. Tipperary Hill), the Valley south of Sencea Turnpike(aka South Valley), Elmwood(especially south of Glenwood/Valley Drive and West of South Ave.) and even the North Valley area(mainly west of Valley Drive and east of the Valley Plaza).

if you haven't already done so, e-mail strathmore.neighborhood@yahoo.com to get yourself on the Greater Strathmore Neighborhood Association e-mail list. It will keep you informed of neighborhood events and help you get to know neighbors. Wellesley is a great street, by the way. A lot of beautiful homes and great neighbors.

My cousin, his wife and their sons (forget how many but at least three or four) have lived on Wellesley for years and love it. It's a great street and you'll like it.
