Salina is a northern suburb of Syracuse, NY. It is a good place for a starter home due to the abundance of Post WWII homes. Interstate 81 intersects with I-90 in the Town of Salina. In addition, the Syracuse Airport is nearby. In the eastern part of Salina near the airport is the area called Mattydale. The western part of Salina is the Liverpool area, which is along the shore of Onondaga Lake. The most popular free county park in the Syracuse metropolitan area, attracting over 1 million people each year, is located in Salina- Onondaga Lake Park.

Town of Salina population is about 33,000

The above pictures of the Village of Liverpool are only taken from the main roads. The Village of Liverpool also has nice tree lined residential streets with sidewalks and old homes that you don't see in these photos.

One downside with the Village of Liverpool is that rush hour traffic goes through the middle of the village. The village is on a main commuter route serving the Town of Lysander and the northwest part of the Town of Clay. So traffic can be a little crazy as commuters go through Liverpool on their way to Syracuse. Other than that it's a nice place to live IMO.

NICE! Especially the village pictures. Thanks, Bellafinzi.

How is the Lake ecologically? Clean for swimming, fish safe to eat, good prognosis for the future?

Is the area developing sensibly or hectically? Is the development overwhelming the village/the small-town feel?

The lake is a mess, ecologically. Big talk of massive clean-up. Plenty of fish, but only a fool would eat one.

Thanks! My favorite TV programs are created/thought up/hosted by Brits and/or are produced by the BBC. Most Television programs created by Americans is down right garbage IMO.

SU uses the lake for rowing, people do fish there, but are warned not to eat too many fish as they contain mercury. Here's an article about the clean up project.....Honeywell Agrees to $451 Million Lake Cleanup

It's developing sensibly IMO. Salina only has two large parcels of land left to build on. It's an old suburb that mostly developed in the 1940s and 1950s. Others may disagree but the village of Liverpool is in no danger of losing it's small town charm. Yes, there is rush hour traffic that go through Liverpool, but that's only on the main road. The side roads are quite quiet.

That's bizarre - most of my favourite tv programs hail from t'other side of the pond!!! ER, Friends, Sopranos, Extreme Makeover Home Edition (love Paige & Tanya ) - swap yer!!!!

I need to find a nice American girl while i'm over in September, fall in love and move there - looks lovely in Liverpool and it would be easy for me to remember where I lived!!
