Welcome to WikiProject Syracuse, New York, a WikiProject started on July 31, 2006, to coordinate work on articles related to Syracuse, New York, in the English Wikipedia. There may or may not be a lot of recent activity showing, but post something on the talk page and you probably will find that several Syracuse Wikipedians will be helpful and interested. :)

This page and its subpages contain suggestions from affiliated Wikipedians; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the goals and open tasks below.

Project history, scope, and goalsEdit

This WikiProject started in 2006 with a focus on articles directly relating to Syracuse (as in locations, buildings, parks, etc. that are in the city proper), as well as the towns (and their respective villages) that share a border with the city. In the years since, it has evolved to cover the entire Syracuse metropolitan area, including all of Onondaga County.

The main goals of WikiProject Syracuse, New York are:

  1. Ensure that all Syracuse-related articles at least meet basic WP:Style guidelines, are categorized correctly and wikilinked with detail, including its neighborhood if it is located in Syracuse.
  2. Continually improve the quality of the better articles so they can reach Good Article status one day.
