Auburn is small enough to feel safe but large enough to offer diversity and opportunities. The City of Auburn contains a lot of history. It is a beautiful area located in the middle of the fingerlakes and offers urban or rural living. There is SUNY college, and hospital, as well as many surrounding high schools. Auburn offers many diverse employment opportunities as well and is closely located to the city of Syracuse.

Quiet safe neighborhoods, great parks, easy to walk around town. Convenient to Syracuse, Rochester, Ithaca. Easy access to lakes, wine country, hiking trails.

My love for Auburn is one that took years of warming up. Auburn has flaws, and there's a lot of ugly, but the beauty and sense of community found in Auburn is unrivaled.
