Syracuse is located at the northeast corner of
the Finger Lakes region, halfway between Toronto and New York City. It is about 400 km northwest
of New York and about 240 Km east of Buffalo.
Settlers came to the Syracuse area after
the American Revolutionary War. Several towns
and villages were united under the name of Syracuse in 1820. Syracuse was incorporated as a village in 1825 and as a city in 1847. The city has functioned as a major crossroads over the last two centuries, first between the Erie Canal and its branch canals, then of the railway network.
First we passed Syracuse on our way home from New York in September 2017 and then came for a day visit on October 16, 2019. Most of the photos was taken on October 16, 2019, only photos 1 and 2 were taken in September 2017.
