To continue with the old money feel, walkable theme, this Madison County lakeside village fits. https://www.google.com/maps/@42.9288...6!9m2!1b1!2i37



It is home to a small college in Cazenovia College: https://www.cazenovia.edu/

You can walk to all of the schools in the district: https://cazenoviacsd.com/
High School and Middle School: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.9332...6!9m2!1b1!2i37



It has a nice, "New England" like Downtown with quite a few businesses: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.9299...6!9m2!1b1!2i37

There is also a plaza on the eastern edge of the village: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.9260...6!9m2!1b1!2i37

More information: https://cazenovia.com/cazenovia-lake/
Parks and Recreation | Village of Cazenovia
Village of Cazenovia

Just outside of the village...

A few companies nearby in the town of the same name: https://us.marquardt.com/


https://www.knowlescapacitors.com/Careers (says Syracuse due to being in that metro area, but really just east of the village of Caz)

Home listings: https://www.realtor.com/realestatean...58,15&qdm=true

For the closest big box shopping, Fayetteville is the closest location about 20-25 minutes away by car. good option if you want a smaller community with very good schools, while still being close enough to suburban areas/Syracuse.

Another walkable village further out in the metro area that is in the town that grew the fastest in the area from 2000-2010 is Hamilton in Madison County: https://www.thisishamiltonny.com

It is home to Colgate University and its location allows for people to go to either Syracuse or Utica for events and extensive shopping. https://www.colgate.edu/

It has a nice Saturday morning Farmer's Market and arts based events in its Downtown. This is along with events that occur at Colgate University. https://www.google.com/maps/@42.8268...6!9m2!1b1!2i37

Some nice older homes down the street from Downtown: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.8280...6!9m2!1b1!2i37

Some listings: https://www.realtor.com/realestatean...,-75.523393,15

It is a very small, but good school district with both of its schools on the same campus/area: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.8224...6!9m2!1b1!2i37




It has lower utility rates due to getting them from a NYPA, municipal company: https://hamilton-ny.gov/municipal-electric/

Besides the university and other nearby colleges/universities, companies in Cazenovia, Oneida, Canastota and the Oneida Nation are the closest options.

More information: https://hamilton-ny.gov/

Strathmore(SW corner of city): https://www.strathmoreneighborhood.org/

Scottholm(city's East Side): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottholm,_Syracuse

but there is also Berkeley Park(city's East Side near Syracuse University): Berkeley Park

some homes on East Genesee Street near Scottholm(East Side of city): https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0445...2!9m2!1b1!2i37

Genesee Park Drive(East Side of city): https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0443...2!9m2!1b1!2i37

parts of the Bradford Hills neighborhood(East Side of city): https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0362...2!9m2!1b1!2i37



Shotwell Park/Hickok Ave. area of Eastwood(NE corner of city): https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0622...2!9m2!1b1!2i37


https://www.eastwoodneighbor.com/ (James Street serves as a Main street for the neighborhood, which has about 10% of the city's population. There is a small collection of businesses down the hill to the south on Burnet Avenue as well.)

A portion of the Park Avenue neighborhood(east of Geddes closer to Downtown on city's West Side): https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0520...2!9m2!1b1!2i37


Besides Downtown, you have a park, Middle Ages Brewing, the Polish Home, an Aldi, Syracuse Academy of Science Charter(grades 7-12), Sacred Heart Church(historically Polish parish), Harrison Bakery, a couple of credit unions and perhaps even the pubs/few places to eat in Tipperary Hill(historically Irish neighborhood) that you can walk to.

Dewittshire(town of DeWitt/Jamesville-DeWitt SD just east of the city): https://www.facebook.com/DeWittshireNY/


Can walk to this plaza, a Tops Supermarket, another plaza that includes a few Indian businesses or a synagogue on East Genesee Street: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0353...2!9m2!1b1!2i37

There is also Moses DeWitt Elementary in the neighborhood, which is a solid/good school with a decent degree of diversity(culturally and even economically): https://www.jamesvilledewitt.org/mosesdewitt

The Orvilton area across East Genesee Street(town of DeWitt/J-D SD): https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0368...6!9m2!1b1!2i37

I'll stop there for now, but what is could be appealing for those coming from NYC or other bigger cities is that most of these areas offer a decent to good degree of walkability and/or access to public transportation(bus).
Here are a few more streets that fit the bolded description(including adjacent neighborhoods): https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0318...2!9m2!1b1!2i37

Town information: https://censusreporter.org/profiles/...aga-county-ny/ (it is one of the most affluent towns in Upstate NY, I believe 2nd in that regard only behind the town of Pittsford outside of Rochester)
