Here's the thing about Syracuse, the people who grew up here and remember the industrial glory days tend to have a very negative attitude about this city and region. As someone who grew up in Pennsylvania and has lived in Virginia and Connecticut before settling here, I can tell you Syracuse has grown on me. There are great companies and opportunities here if you have a college education in the right field. This city is clearly transforming into a white collar city, which is what makes the blue collar natives furious I think. For a city it's size, there's great theater and restaurants. Shopping options are improving. The airport is so easy to get in and out of and less than 5 minutes from the city center. Day trips to the Adirondacks or Finger Lakes are great in the summer (all seasons, for that matter). The winters are long...no denying that..but most of us embrace it. The best part is you learn to cherish every spring, summer and fall. I've never appreciated seasons as much as I do here. So, welcome all newcomers!!! I think you'll Syracuse can make anyone feel at home.
