I lived in East Syracuse and every weekend after July 4th, our community had a small one day festival with Ice cream, games and music. There would be hundreds of people from the community getting together and enjoying the festivities and meeting up with people they might have seen in a while, when it was dark, came the fireworks display. I might add, these are the best fireworks I have ever seen. I have seen fireworks in other states besides NY, I still believe the firework display at East Syracuse 4th of July Festivities is the best yet." - Jeannette Sweeney
"I moved here looking for work 12 years ago. I found work, found love, and stayed for sense of community, and the food. I love it here!" - Glenn R
"I have lived here almost all my 53 years of life. I remember great times and not so great times. I love the history, culture and over all things that this community has to offer. I love Syracuse because it is my home.
I raised my children here, and my grandchildren are growing up here.
I moved to NC for two years which was a year and a half too long. There is not a week that goes by that an event happens where I am extremely happy I moved back." - Eileen C
