Mohawk Valley

This region is the geographic center of Upstate New York along the scenic Erie Canal. It is within 100 miles of major markets in every direction including Albany (90 miles), Syracuse (50 miles), Binghamton (80 miles), and the Canadian border (100 miles). The region includes the historic urban centers of Utica, Rome and Amsterdam.

The flourishing industry clusters include distribution, materials processing, industrial machinery and services, agriculture, and financial services. The 300-acre Marcy Nanocenter property in Oneida County is currently being transformed into the largest, shovel-ready site for high-technology development in New York's Tech Valley.

Mohawk Valley

The region is home to numerous academic and research institutions. There is also a large concentration on the arts in the Mohawk Valley which not only provides entertainment but also jobs and income and help boosts tourism in the area.

The Mohawk Valley boasts a superior quality of life as well as some of the most affordable real estate in New York. The Utica/Rome metropolitan area made Money Magazine's top ten list of the most affordable places to live, and Utica was ranked #1 on's "Top 10 Places to Buy in 2011."
