What Bert Has To Say About Syracuse Metro Area

Syracuse is located along the old Erie Canal adjacent to the well-known Finger Lakes region. It is a commercial and transportation center at the crossroads of major north-south and east-west routes. Large industries once took advantage of the area’s clean water and strategic location, but the decline of the manufacturing base has hurt the area and it faces difficulties attracting jobs, and for that matter, new residents to town.
