Oneida is a city in Madison County located east of Canastota, New York, United States. The population was 10,987 at the 2000 census.

Urban planning

The city of Oneida is a good example of pre-war city design, i.e., urban planning that is pedestrian-focused and bicycle-friendly. With public buildings, parks, and private residences well-mingled and within walking and biking distance, the city is gaining popularity with telecommuters who can choose where they live without the constraints of job location. Most residents of the city core are within walking distance to elementary schools, churches, and recreational activities. Recently, there has been renewed interest for increased bicycle infrastructure, especially a revitalization of the disused light rail pathways that ring the city's south and north side for multi-use by cyclists and recreation, and as a gateway to and from the inner and outer area retail districts.

Oneida benefits from having several post secondary academies within commuting distance including Colgate University, Hamilton College, the State University of New York Institute of Technology, Syracuse University, Le Moyne College, Mohawk Valley Community College, Cazenovia College, the State University of New York at Morrisville, and Utica College.
