Syracuse, NY has functioned as a major crossroads over the last two centuries, first between the Erie Canal and its branch canals, then the railway network. The Erie Canal Museum, located in the only remaining Weighlock building in America, and the Syracuse Salt Museum are just two of the many attractions in the area. Today, Syracuse is located at the intersection of Interstates 81 and 90 and has the largest airport in the region. Syracuse is home to Syracuse University, a major research and college sports university, as well as several smaller colleges and professional schools. In 2010, Forbes rated Syracuse 4th in the top 10 places to raise a family. Syracuse is the 4th most populous metropolitan city in the state of New York and is the economic and educational hub of central New York. With the preservation of its valuable heritage, Syracuse continues to provide an exciting blend of their old and new cultures.
