Oneonta, Otsego, New York, USA
Oneonta is a city in southern Otsego County, New York, USA. Its nickname is "City of the Hills." While the word "oneonta" is of undetermined origin, it is popularly believed to mean "place of open rocks" in the Iroquois language.

The city is surrounded by the town of Oneonta, a separate municipal and political jurisdiction.Wikipedia
