Gina,

Syracuse is in Onondaga County and is listed as an Av of 0.05 and Aa of 0.05
in the ATC maps for the 1994 NEHRP. 
This would imply a UBC zone 1.

>From the USGS web site:
The input zip-code is 13202. 
LOCATION 	43.0447 Lat. 	-76.1512 Long. 
DISTANCE TO NEAREST GRID POINT 6.3588 kms 
NEAREST GRID POINT 43.0 Lat. -76.2 Long. 
Probabilistic ground motion values, in %g, at this point are: 

	10%PE in 50 yr	5%PE in 50 yr	2%PE in 50 yr
PGA	3.128191	4.878041	8.638732
0.2 sec SA	7.737466	11.779650	19.111610
0.3 sec SA	6.648056	10.165940	16.965389
