Best of SyracuseTipperary Hill

Tipperary Hill was settled by people of English descent who named the streets after famous English poets. Eventually, Irish immigrants gravitated to the hill. It’s known for the only green-over-red traffic light, the city’s largest park (Burnet Park), the James Pass Arboretum, Tipperary Hill Memorial Park and a plethora of Irish pubs and restaurants.
