Community Profile
Rome is a city located in Oneida County in the geographical center of New York at the foothills of the Adirondacks. The nearby presence of the Adirondack Mountains and the many lakes, rivers and hills make Rome an outdoor lover’s dream. Rome features academically competitive schools, affordable homes, a short average commute, and one of the lowest violent crime rates in the state according to the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ 2014 Economic Forecast. At the center of New York, Rome is conveniently located 40 miles from Syracuse. The Carrier Dome, a 49,262-seat domed sports stadium, is located on the campus of Syracuse University and is the largest structure of its kind on a college campus in the country. The Erie Canal, constructed from Albany to Buffalo in 1825, and nearby lakes offer cruises, walking, and biking on adjacent trails. Central New York has incredible assets that make it a unique and wonderful place to live, work, play, and raise a family. It’s no wonder that all roads lead to Rome, the “Center of it All.”
