I've been to Syracuse twice now, most recently in March of 2006 to go see Billy Joel in concert at the Carrier Dome. Great show, great friends and a great time, but is Syracuse a great town? Well, I don't know that I'm an expert, but I do know that it's not the type of place that I could live.

If you're more of a small town person, you might love it in Syracuse. There are some intersting buildings in the historic downtown and the Armory Square district has a thriving nightlife scene (although you could probably do all the bars in two or three weekends). Most of the people that I met here were living here for just a short time. Resident doctors and grad students were common, but I didn't get to have a real conversation with anyone who had grown up here and really knows the place well.

Hopefully someday, I'll return to Syracuse and learn a bit more about the cultural opporunities, the economy and the history of the place, but for now, my memories are mostly of beery nights and gray skies.
