Possibly relocating to one of these areas. I am seeking a nice rental home or condo/townhouse or lastly, apartment.

I would like to be in a safe, amenity filled community.

If anyone can describe these areas for me, would appreciate it!

What about employment? Meaning, do you have anything lined up and if so, where is it located? Once that is established, then posters can offer some suggestions.

Also, Whitesboro and Marcy(both are in the Whitesboro SD) would be another good potential option.

Retired, with occasional consulting work in the Rome area, so commuting and employment are not primary concerns.

Primary concerns are being in a good neighborhood with entertainment and recreational opportunities. Thank you

I would look in New Hartford first due to proximity to shopping and events/entertainment in Utica and Clinton. Offers townhomes and apartments: Townhouses and apartments in New Hartford | Oxford Towne Apartments

These are in North Utica, which also has shopping in the Riverside Center: https://www.deerfieldplaceutica.com It is also a straight shot to Rome via Route 49.

Clinton is home to Hamilton College, a Liberal Arts institution and has a nice, quaint feel to it. Clinton HS participates in the A Better Chance program, which gets a select amount of black and Hispanic students from urban areas with great academic potential. They have the boys program for CNY, while Fayetteville-Manlius just east of Syracuse has the girls program. They also have their own homes with that district.

New Hartford is seen as the area’s most affluent suburban area and also has a nice, walkable village as well. Decent amount of Asians and is the suburb you are likely to find a visible Jewish population, along with a sprinkle of other groups(blacks, Lebanese, etc.).

The Whitesboro SD area is a nice mix of working class to upper middle class folks. It covers anything from villages such as Whitesboro and much of Yorkville to standard suburbia in the town of Whitestown to rural areas in Marcy and I believe even a small portion of Frankfort in Herkimer County.

There’s also the village of New York Mills(split between the towns of New Hartford and Whitestown), which has its own SD(covers parts of Yorkville too) and is known for its large Polish population.

The villages of Whitesboro, Yorkville and NY Mills essenytially run together west of Utica and before you get to Commercial Drive in new Hartford, where a lot of the big box shopping and the Sangertown Square Mall is located.

Rome and Utica are more culturally diverse, especially Utica. The latter is known for its strong Italian population(many of the city’s government are of this ethnicity) and its refugee population(Bosnians make up about 10% of the city, with other coming from various African and Asian countries). It also has substantial African American and Hispanic/Latino populations(about 25-30% between the 2 groups). Utica has/had an orchestra and ballet. Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute on Genesee is affiliated with Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute. There is also the Stanley Theater for shows. If you like sports, there is an AHL team in the Utica Comets, which gets a lot of local support.

I'd say that the nicest parts of the city are North Utica(north of the Mohawk River/Erie Canal, South Utica(south of Burrstone Rd./Memorial Parkway) and outer east/SE Utica(past Mohawk Valley Community College). The area just west of Addison Miller Park/east of Utica College is solid working/middle class area on the city's West Side.

It also has SUNY Poly in North Utica/Marcy and Utica College off Burrstone Road on the western edge of the city near NY Mills/Notre Dame Jr. Sr. High/St. Luke-Faxton Hospital.

Rome also has a strong Italian population with visible black, Hispanic and Asian populations. It also has/had a strong military vibe/presence due to once having Griffiss Air Force Base before BRAC Realignment force it to close in 1995. It still has DFAS at what is now the Griffiss Business Park. It has the Capitol Theatre and the Rome Community Theater is a local performance arts company. It is also a more spread out city that can cover urban, suburban and rural areas(2nd biggest in the state in land area with about 34,000 people). It also has a satellite campus of Mohawk Valley Community College.

If interested, there is also the Oneida Nation in the western end of Oneida County not too far west of Rome and it also has the Turning Stone Casino and Resort. North of there in the county is Sylvan Beach(think an older type of lakeside resort community with an old amusement park and shops).

Mohawk Valley Edge is a business/economic development based organization in the area.

So, those are some things off the top of my head...

More Rome information: Home - Rome Area Chamber of Commerce, NY

Griffiss Business & Technology Park - Rome, NY

Foxwood Townhouses - Rome, NY | CRM Rental Management (in a more suburban/rural part of the city to the north)

Relocating to rome

https://artistreestudiosandgallery.business.site
Rome Art and Community Center
https://photoshoppeofrome.com
https://www.romecapitol.com
Rome Community Theater, Rome NY

What may also be appealing about considering Rome is that it is also about 40-45 minutes from Syracuse if you want access to a little bit bigger city/area. You are still about 15-20 minutes from Utica as well.
