Syracuse, New York
Syracuse is located in the county of Onondaga, New York and the fifth largest city in the state. It is conveniently located interstates 80 and 90 intersect. It was rated in the 4th position in the top ten places to raise a family by the Forbes in recent years.
Though the city of Syracuse was first inhabited by the French in the seventeenth century, it was only after the revolutionary war that more settlers came here, with the primary aim of trading with the Onondaga nation. Originally, Syracuse was part of the salt spring’s reservation. When the Erie Canal was constructed in 1830 city of Syracuse became an incredibly vibrant location for trade.
The discovery of salt brines in the Onondaga lake was chiefly responsible for the commercial salt production and flourishing of salt industry in Syracuse. Brien wells that tapped into common salt beds were developed in the nineteenth century. There was a rapid development of salt industry and this led to the nickname for Syracuse as the salt city. Until 1900, the majority of the salt used in the United States came from Syracuse. But after the civil war, the salt industry declined but the mid eighties of the eighteenth century saw an industrial revolution here, numerous businesses were established including the Franklin automobile, the Crouse-Hinds company, Gustav Stickley’s handmade furniture along with many others.

Many noted performers have come here like Bobby Watson, Stanley Clarke, Jimmy Heath, Smokey Robinson, the Bad Plus, Chuck Mangoine, to name a few.
