It's not bad. More of a rural community that is about 8 miles or so south of Syracuse. It's a diverse school district due to the children from the Onondaga Nation Reservation attending school there. Very safe and you can take I-81 or Route 11 into Syracuse. They a great Apple Festival there too. Here's some information on the Town of LaFayette and the area:Welcome To The Town of LaFayette, New York's Official Homepage

I can't think of a Syracuse suburb that isn't within 30 minutes, easily.

I saw someone mention Green Lakes/Fayetteville being 30 minutes away. No way. LOL - I'm in Manlius and 10 minutes from the Syracuse City limits. Fayetteville is slightly closer.

Cazenovia is 10 minutes south of Manlius. 20 minutes from Caz to Syracuse is more than possible. People think we're far off from the city here - Manlius is exactly 5 miles from 481 in Dewitt and the speed limit is 50mph nearly the entire way. Not far at all.

edited to add: I just looked up the exact distance between Syracuse city limits (almost right at the Jewish Home) and Fayetteville's village center: 3.8 miles.
