Snuggled in the picturesque hills of Central New York, Norwich is miles from the grime and congestion of sprawling metropolises, yet major cities of the Northeast US and Southeast Canada all lie within a few hours' drive. Regional access is provided via New York State Routes 12 and 23, connecting the City to the New York State Thruway, Interstate 88, Interstate 81 and State Routes 17 and 20. Important regional connections include Binghamton 40 miles to the south and Syracuse 60 miles to the northwest. Norwich is 215 miles from New York City and 130 miles from the Capital in Albany.
Industry and artisans alike have made Norwich their home. Employers benefit from the strong work ethic of our residents. We stroll on tree-lined streets, in plentiful parks, or through our multi-storied downtown shops. North and South Broad Street is the heart of the City and offers a wide range of shopping options centered on locally owned and operated restaurants and specialty shops. Shopping at nationwide chains is available on the city's outskirts.
We are home to numerous festivals and events, including the annual Gus Macker Basketball Tournament, Colorscape Chenango Arts Festival, Blues Fest, and Pumpkin Fest.
Our low crime rate and friendly atmosphere continue to draw people from around the country and our designation as an Economic Development Zone by the State of New York makes us an ideal place to start or relocate a business. Peaceful neighborhoods, a terrific educational system, and city services in a village setting make Norwich an idyllic place to live, work, raise a family, and enjoy one's senior years.
