I am looking for an area in CNY where people from all over live. When I first moved up here I lived downtown and seemed to meet interesting people from all over. I then moved to North Syracuse and its a totally different world here , it seems everyone has grown up here and known each other forever. My block although my neighbors are friendly enough has no sense of community really, everyone is older and their kids have long grown up and moved out . I grew up having block parties and knowing all the kids on my block and I was wondering if there are any areas like that here. I am hoping to find a place that has a lot of transplants. I have a young child now and want to find a community I guess that would be like the downtown for professional adults with children.

I'd say that parts of the Eastern suburbs would/could work. Perhaps an area like DeWittshire in DeWitt(J-D Schools) would be a neighborhood to consider. https://m.facebook.com/DeWittshireNY/

The villages of Manlius and Fayetteville could be a couple of other places in that area to look into.

If you don't mind a city neighborhood, the University/Westcott area may be worth a look: The Neighborhood > Introduction | UNPA

UNPA’s new video! If you aren't comfortable with Ed Smith Elementary, you also have charter and private options not too far away. Some of the other nicer city neighborhoods may work in this regard as well(Strathmore, Sedgwick, Eastwood, etc).

I'm sure there are others, but it will depend on other things such as budget and other aspects in terms of a neighborhood.

Radisson in the Baldwinsville area may also work. It is a planned community with the very rare HOA. So, that would be something to keep in mind. Radisson Community Association, Inc - Home Page

Thank you ! I have always liked Strathmore but the schools are a problem ( would have to look into private schools in the area) and I love Westcott but not sure it if would be good for raising kids there. If it were just me I would definitely live in those areas. I am thinking of F-M because that is where I seem to meet the most people from all over and I do like the area but it seems like that is the generic response that everyone tells me to move so I will definitely check out the other places you recommended. I am a more laid back kind of person too and not sure I want to live in a very high pressure environment where if I don't mow my lawn one week all hell is going to break loose !

Was the street view with Jamesville Road Dewitt ? That looks perfect. I love the fact that it has sidewalks , my neighborhood does not and I can't tell you how much I miss taking walks.

Yes, it is the DeWittshire neighborhood, which also has some businesses nearby on East Genesee Street and Moses DeWitt Elementary is right on Jamesville Road.

You may like some of the other villages like Liverpool or Baldwinsville, if walkability is something that you like.

Also, J-D and Liverpool are arguably and relatively the most culturally diverse of the suburban SD. So, coming from NYC, that may be something to consider as well.

Here's a vote for the village of baldwinsville. Very close knit community. Lots to do, especially with the kiddos. Had Seneca River days last weekend. There's always a concert on Paper Mill Island. Lots of sidewalks and walking trails (in fact the village is in the process of expanding the sidewalked areas to make it even more walkable). Great location, right on the seneca river with lots of action during boating season!

PM if you wish! I live right in the village and love it.
