To me, Albany is in a great location because the Adirondacks, Catskills, Lake George, etc. are all close by. I know its relatively close proximity to Boston, NYC and Montreal would have a high allure to many.


During a recent visit to Buffalo I could not believe how much larger it looked than Syracuse. It's a little difficult for me to compare Syracuse to Buffalo as Buffalo looked massive in comparison. Rochester also looked noticeably larger than Syracuse but not as much as Buffalo did.
And Toronto makes Buffalo look like a small town. NYC makes Toronto look like a hick town (almost)...

Thanks for all the feedback Upstate NY ! Great information....my take is that the lower population density makes Syracuse the winner in this game.

I am getting old, quick...and staying in is what I like to do....

If it is lower density that you want, then the suburbs are pretty much the way to go.

It is an area that is still big enough and actually bigger than most metro areas, urban areas, etc. to where there is enough going on or to do for whenever you want to do something.
