51 apartments for rent in Watertown, NY
The charming and historic city of Watertown is located about 70 miles north of Syracuse and 30 miles south of the Canadian border. While it is probably best known today as the home of Fort Drum, Watertown’s history began in 1800 when pioneers settled along the Black River in an attempt to harness the river’s power and create an industrial hub.
The heart of Watertown is the Public Square, an open mall listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The square contains 58 historic buildings, today filled with shops, cafes, and the historic Paddock Arcade, the nation’s second-oldest covered shopping mall, in operation since 1850.
Rent an apartment in Watertown and you’ll enjoy strolling along the brick-paved walkways in the Public Square, shopping in the Arcade, and enjoying outdoor adventures in the Adirondacks, the Thousand Islands Region, and Lake Ontario. Activities in this ruggedly beautiful area include everything from fishing and boating to river rafting, hiking, and camping.
