Guide to Seneca City
Seneca City is a metropolis located in Ganondagen County in Upstate New York with an estimated population of 205,695 according to the 1983 census. Nestled at the mouth of the Chenango River, it is a port city on Lake Iroquois and was founded in 1789.
Seneca City is one of the United States’ first boomtowns, initially due to the fertile Chenango River Valley, which gave rise to numerous flour mills, and then as a manufacturing center that spurred further rapid population growth. The city rose to prominence as the birthplace and home of some of America’s most iconic companies, in particular Seneca Ignition System Ltd., Vyal Pharmaceuticals, Pop! Beverages, Secrite Arms. (and others) which saw the region become a global center for science, technology, research, and development.
This status has been aided by the presence of several internationally renowned universities (notably the Seneca City University of Applied Sciences, and Seneca Institute of Technology) and their research programs; these schools along with many other smaller colleges have played an increasingly large role in the Greater Seneca City’s economy.
