City of Ogdensburg

The historic waterfront community of Ogdensburg, New York is home to over seven miles of St. Lawrence River frontage. The river is a primary feature of the City and New York’s Thousand Island-Seaway Vacation Region, which characterizes the area. Two hours north of Syracuse, Ogdensburg is a short drive to this and other population centers in New York State. In addition, with access to the Ogdensburg-Prescott International Bridge, the city is proximate to several major Canadian cities, including Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto.

  • Access to Ogdensburg and all it has to offer is available by car, truck, train, and airplane.  The 1.5-mile Ogdensburg – Prescott suspension bridge connects visitors and commerce to Ontario and other Canadian destinations. The bridge has a heavy-load capability to 105,000 lbs and annual crossings of more than 722,500 vehicles (2011). Commercial and private air transportation is serviced out of Ogdensburg International Airport and the Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) qualified Port of Ogdensburg is closer to Northern Europe than most other U.S. ports.
  • The City of Ogdensburg is investing in its future through major infrastructure and planning projects. In 2018, the city completed sanitary sewer and stormwater improvements and today a $49.0M upgrade to the city-owned and operated waste water treatment plant is underway. 
  • With nearly 11,000 residents, superior transportation options, a unique border position along the St. Lawrence Seaway and an abundance of natural resources, the City of Ogdensburg has much to offer.
