A Message from Mayor Thomas W. Gillen
Welcome to the official website of Oswego, New York.
Oswego is known as the Port City of Central New York. Its beautiful waterfront is complemented by the maritime theme found throughout the city. Our many parks afford a panoramic view of Lake Ontario, and we offer a beautifully preserved historical site at Fort Ontario.
While you’re here, you can visit some of our unique shops or just relax by the water and feel the refreshing lake breeze. You should also stay and witness one of our astonishing sunsets. Experience the friendly people of Oswego as you stroll through our city that incorporates several centuries of history and architecture.
Oswego is centrally located in New York State, making it convenient to all markets in the Northeastern United States and Canada. We boast a diverse industrial base and a New York State Empire Zone designation, making Oswego attractive to business.
Aside from its sights and activities, Oswego’s greatest attraction is its people. They are hard-working men and women who are dedicated to preserving the charm, history, and beauty of this unique city.
