Hello Everyone,

I am planning on moving to Syracuse in about a month for a new job and was wondering if anyone could offer some good advise on where to live. I am a young, female professional in my mid 20's. I am looking to live in a safe neighborhood, but also be able to have acess to getting to downtown to restaurants, bars, etc. If anyone could offer any advice I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!
Amy

Assuming you are not looking to move downtown or be within walking distance of work or downtown bars....I'd look into the northern suburbs of Syracuse. They are much more vibrant and alive compared to any other suburb or neighborhoods in Syracuse itself. And much safer than living in the city. Plus the northern suburbs are more affordable than the eastern or western suburbs. The North Syracuse area is sort of the hub of the northern suburbs. It's very close to Interstate 81, which provides easy access to downtown and the bars in Armory Square.

Well, if you want to be closer to main street life, villages such as Baldwinsville, North Syracuse and Liverpool are good bets. If you want to have a more suburban lifestyle, Cicero, Clay and Lysander are strong choices in the north suburbs. They are all reasonably close to the interstate, so getting to Syracuse won't be a problem. If you are looking for apartments, go through the real estate section of syracuse.com, there should be plenty of listings for you to check out, and determine what is best for you.

vicarian answered your questions really well.

Willow Stream Apartments in Liverpool/Clay is near lots of stores and restaurants on Route 31 plus there's an exit on I-481 close by. Its a safe area where a lot of things are happening, but it's pretty far away from downtown, about 20 minutes. Not sure where you are moving from, but it could be a long commute for you if you work downtown or want to frequent the bars in Armory Square.

Hello,

Considering what you outlined above, I would suggest you look at apartments in Liverpool (largest number of apartment complexes in Metro Syracuse), Cicero, or Baldwinsville. These are all nice, safe, decent suburban towns. Below are a few apartment complexes you can consider but there are numerous other complexes.

Cicero, NY.>>> Cobblestone Square Apartments, Cobblestone Drive (off South Bay Road), Cicero, NY 13039. Phone: 315-699-5204.
www.move.com/
email: cobblesq@twcny.rr.com

Liverpool, NY.>>> ABC Estate Apartments - $620
http://liverpool-newyork.olx.com/pic...e-iid-44558048

Liverpool, NY.>>> Hampton Estate Townhouses - $660
http://liverpool-newyork.olx.com/730...s-iid-44549532

Baldwinsville east>>> Kimbrook Manor Apartments - $590
http://baldwinsville.olx.com/8402-th...r-iid-44549540

To see a street map where these places are located, click on the link line below and enter the appropriate information. Then click on, "GET MAP".
www.mapblast.com/

There are nightlife places in the suburbs as well as the city. Pick up a copy of "The Syracuse New Times", free at inside entrances of restaurants, grocery stores, and pharmacies which lists all the nightlife places, etc. ..Also ask your new co-workers if you want to. Visit the "Armory Square" area with a couple women co-workers of yours so you feel secure and can enjoy conversation at the businesses there.

Best of luck in your new job and welcome to Metro Syracuse.

Liverpool - zip codes 13088 and 13090. Downtown Syracuse is a few minutes' jaunt down Onondaga Parkway>I-81, from the Village of Liverpool.

The village is safe, affordable and within walking distance to village shops, amenities and the HUGE Onondaga Lake Park... they have sports' fields, biking/walking/running/rolling trails, a trolley, the Salt Museum and St. Marie living museum (French/Indian village within) across the street, lots of events, HUGE playground and sprinkler system for the warm weather and a skate park right next to it. You can watch your kids skate AND play on the playground at the same time. It's awesome.

May I suggest Covered Bridge Apartments, on Vine Street? Rent is affordable and heat/hot water/plowing/shoveling/maintenance are included. That will save you a LOT of money and worry... my electric bill was only $25/mo., when I lived there, and I had no gas/heating costs to worry about. It's also on the Centro bus line (right at the entry driveway), in case your vehicle is in the shop at some point. They also have a pool w/lifeguard, in the summertime.

I can't say enough good things about the Village of Liverpool! I lived in greater Liverpool for a year while I was attempting to finally get into the Village - moved in September and absolutely love it! Very people friendly, very walkable village, and lots to do!
