And while everyone has a unique ideal in mind, we think no matter what you are looking for, you can find it here in Central New York. From establishing family traditions to pursuing professional accomplishments, the area provides a safe, friendly and scenic backdrop to your way of living. We've asked 15 Central New Yorkers who have important roles in building and enriching our community to share what they love about CNY and how they live their good life.
