Compare Clay to Top 10 Best Places
A small city in the central part of the state, Clay offers respite from typical New York urban hassles with sprawling flatlands and big blue skies.
Low home prices and safe streets make Clay even more attractive. It is also bordered by the Oneida and Seneca rivers -- both havens for would-be fishermen.
One caveat: Those who make their home here have to be prepared for long, icy winters.
