Pop. 145,170Syracuse was named for the Sicilian city of Siracusa and is made up of various villages that joined the city over the years. Since its incorporation as a village in 1825, it has served as a major crossroads in the New York State through the development of the Erie Canal and a major railroad network.

Syracuse is the fifth most populous city in New York State.
