Syracuse, NY is located in Onondaga County which is considered to be the Center of New York. Our central location means we’re within five hours of every major metro in the east, including New York City, Boston, Washington DC, and Philadelphia. But your housing dollar goes much further in Syracuse with the median selling price of a home in Onondaga County being one hundred and thirty thousand dollars..
Living in Central New York means finding a home that meets your lifestyle — at a more affordable price than many other places in the country. Whatever your lifestyle, you’ll find plenty of choices, from upscale city living to large suburban family homes to townhouses and patio homes for people whose children have grown or for professionals who don’t want the maintenance of a single-family house.
Urbanism has really exploded, with the renovation of trendy downtown districts into city dwellings. We are creating an atmosphere where many people like to live because of the community, the downtown and districts like Armory Square and Hanover Square.
Syracuse’s urban neighborhoods feature homes that range from typical city dwellings to mansions. Once considered the exclusive residential area for Syracuse’s most affluent families, the James Street and Sedgwick neighborhoods feature landmark homes dating from the mid-1800's. More beautiful and stately homes abound in the Strathmore area on the city’s west side, overlooking picturesque Hiawatha Lake in Onondaga Park.
Upscale living is evident in the heart of downtown as well, where revitalization in Syracuse’s business district has led to the development of chic living quarters. Former factories and warehouses are now some of Syracuse’s most coveted homes, with the Center Armory, Greenway Place, Loews Landmark apartments, Mission Landing in Franklin Square, and Nettleton Commons providing fashionable addresses overlooking the city streets.
There are also neighborhoods known for their ethnic heritage, such as Tipperary Hill,which is home to many people of Irish descent. The neighborhood’s ancestral pride is demonstrated by a traffic light in which the green light is on top — believed to be the only one of its kind in the country.
A renaissance of the city’s neighborhoods to the north is creating an area known as Little Italy. The section is from Laurel Street to East Division Street and it includes historic buildings and many businesses and shops. Recent improvements to North Salina Street in Little Italy have created a pedestrian-friendly area for eating, shopping and leisurely walks.
There is so much to offer in Syracuse's housing options.
