Hi everyone,

We are a newly wed couple planning on moving to Syracuse sometime in May as my husband will be starting to work for Syracuse university. We have been living in Los Angeles since 5yrs and absolutely have no idea about the upstate NY. This is why I have a lot of issues going in my mind right now.I have read almost all the posts in this forum and gathered some info about the place’s safety etc. I still have a few questions:
• Is the tap water safe for drinking?
• Can you suggest any good apt complexes in Liverpool/ any other suburb nearer to the univ
• Suburbs with Indian community

Can anyone plz help me with these queries....I'd appreciate your help

Thanks

Thanks in advance
To the first question, the water is definitely safe to drink and there is plenty of fresh water in the area.

In Liverpool, you would like Clayton Manor Apartments. I stayed there for 4 years and loved it. Very quiet and well kept complex. You might like Maplewood Gardens in DeWitt or Carriage House East in Manlius, among others. I know quite a few Indian families live in Vincent Apartments not too far from campus as well.

Suburbs with noticeable Indian communities, relatively speaking, would be mainly in the Eastern suburbs of DeWitt and Manlius. Specifically, look in the Jamesville-DeWitt and Fayetteville-Manlius school districts. Liverpool also has some.

Here is some information you might like to look at:

Fortunately,maybe you lucked out,just a pinch.Firstly,its Central New York,The Finger Lakes Area. There is a Indian Community just within a half a mile of the Syracuse
Unniversity Center.Its a little neighborhood,and annexes the Syarcuse Campus.

Sahota Palace is still there and IMHO it's the best Indian food in the area. Last night I had dinner at Taj Mahal - the new Erie Blvd. Indian restaurant run by the owners of Samrat. The mixed grill tandoori and the mango lassi were good, the assorted breads not bad, and the pakoras and samosas not up to par. Service was friendly and fairly efficient. Decor is a bit on the budget side but prices are moderate. Overall it's worth visiting.

Personally, I would choose Maplewood Gardens or any place in Dewitt in preference to Vincent Apartments. If you have children, the Jamesville-Dewitt school district is academically good and the student body perhaps a trifle more diverse than you'll find in soe of our other suburban school districts.

I'm a bit puzzled by this remark and hope it can be clarified. There is a moderate sized Indian population in Syracuse and many people within that group work at the university or the adjacent hospitals (three major hospitals are adjacent to the SU campus). That being said, I'm not aware of a specific neighborhood or area within Syracuse that meets the description, and I live in the university area.

The closest neighborhood I can think of with a relatively higher than usual Indian population is the Outer Comstock neighborhood due to many living in Vincent Apartments and in some of the other streets in that neighborhood.

Another apartment complex where quite a few Indian students/residents in Nob Hill Apartments. They are nice and it is close to highways as well. If you have children, note that the complex is in the Syracuse City SD. Many Indians in the area live in the Eastern suburbs or Liverpool, with some scattered throughout the immediate area.
