Syracuse is home to Syracuse University (founded in 1870) and it's 18,186 students (in 2000).
Some say that Syracuse is a nice place to live because it has some of the advantages of a larger city without some of the disadvantages. Syracuse is within a day's drive of some very big cities like New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto, and Montreal.
During winter, it gets very cold, and there is a lot of lake-effect snow.
