That's a bit too broad of a generalisation, don't you think? Perhaps "more"... I wouldn't say MUCH more though... I know too many who proudly claim their Jewish heritage and then excitedly tell me about boneless pork loins on sale for $1.99/lb. Except that my husband and I don't like pork - "but I can have a TON of great recipes!"

That would be akin to our term "Cafeteria Catholic"... pick and choose what to believe and follow. LOL.

I would go with Syracuse unless diversity is your number #1 factor. Even though it's shrinking, it's still the 5th largest city in NY. Syracuse gets about as much as Buffalo, but there's better snowmobiling, cross country and downhill skiing in the area imo.

the city of Syracuse is very diverse, but only a select few suburban areas have "legit" diversity(Nedrow, DeWitt in the Jamesville-DeWitt area, parts of the Liverpool and North Syracuse school districts, LaFayette due to Native Americans and the Fayetteville-Manlius area has a decent amount of Asians and a small but noticable amount of Blacks). Basically, the Northern and Eastern suburbs and a couple of communities south of the city of Syracuse.

They are both college towns. Syracuse more so.
