To the Town of Sidney, New York

The Sidney Plain is surrounded by the foothills of the Catskill Mountains and nestled in the Susquehanna River Valley.

Get to Know the Town of Sidney!

The Town of Sidney, New York, is about 50 square miles of rural landscape, including rolling hills, historic homes, and farmland. The Town is in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, situated in the northwest part of Delaware County.  Both the Village of Sidney and the hamlet of Sidney Center are within the town.

Yet Sidney is not isolated. A major highway, Interstate 88, goes through the Town and provides easy access to Oneonta to the east and Binghamton to the west. New York State Route 8 also passes through the Town, making many destinations easily drivable.

The Town was formed in 1801 from the Town of Franklin and named Sidney in honor of British naval officer Sir Sidney Smith. Wedged between two neighboring counties, the north town line, marked by the Susquehanna River, is the border of Otsego County, and the west town line is the border of Chenango County.
