Syracuse, NY, is a crossroad to many places and has been since its early days. It connected folks as part of the Erie Canal and then later as part of a railroad network. Today I-81 and I-90 intersect in Syracuse, and that, combined with a major airport, makes it one busy city. The area's history goes back to the 1600s when French Jesuit priests began to work with the Indians. There are lots of reasons to visit the city and take in the many sites.

The libraries in NY are opening up, and many are offering browsing times by appointment. Curbside pickup is another option. You can enjoy e-books, tutoring, and plenty of new books. This is just one of the branches of the Syracuse library system.
Syracuse is rich in history, and you can visit many of the landmarks and historical places. Some of the historical highlights include:
