considering a move

by hslowe


I'm considering taking a job in the Corning, NY area. I'd like to get a variety of opinions about the region from the people who live there. I lived in Horseheads until I was about 10 but that was long ago.

What can you tell me about the best towns to live in? Where would you choose to live if you worked at Corning? Is Ithaca a bad drive from Corning?

Just how bad are those winters?

And, anything else you think I should know while I'm making my decision?

Thanks a million.

Not that it is relevant to any of your questions, Ithaca is one of the places I have lived that I kick myself in the ass for ever leaving. Maybe it is the rose colored glasses that come with hindsight but man did I enjoy living in Ithaca. The winters were brutal but everything else about the place made it worth it.

I lived there in 73 and 74. It was a great place to be young in.

RE: considering a move

by TempNomad

I adore Ithaca, and if it were feasible I'd move there TODAY! Well, maybe tomorrow. There are some very small and friendly towns around the Ithacan outskirts. I suggest taking a look around the pages of members who live there or who have visited several times. If you're wondering about a commute, Ithaca to Corning could be tough in the winter.

I don't remember the winters being so brutal, but maybe that's because I came from Massachusetts. Lots of snow, lots of salt on the roads, lots of joy at the arrival of spring...same as most places, no? Although, coming from more mild weather, it could be a shock!

I was just perusing the NYS forum today and see this....

You are thinking os about a 40+ mile drive. One way. Rte 13 on a bad winters day is tough. And Rte 17 with the snow and wind howling over it on the stretch from Horseheads to Corning... Have you thought of Watkins Glen. It's on the south end of Sececa Lake. Half the distance to Corning. Ithaca is only 25 miles to the east of that. Then again, how many bad days driving? Only a few really when it gets down to it. Gas prices in this part of NYS are high. 3.00+ per gallon.

Travel Tips for Ithaca

Ithaca College Campus

by TempNomad

It's certainly not as widespread or majestic as the Cornell Campus, but there are some lovely, quiet spaces. There are also some interesting (?) things to see. This sculpture has the typical legend that it will roll down the hill the first time a virgin graduates. It's been proven untrue, however. The view from the top of the lecture hall is lovely. Sunsets and sunrises look wonderful from up here...and even though a lot of the empty spaces have disappeared, the chapel area and upper areas still have a sense of tranquility.

Ithaca's Winery-Six Mile Creek Vineyard

by windoweb

Nestled on the southwest slope of one of Ithaca's most picturesque settings, Six Mile Creek Vineyard is a boutique winery featuring a variety of hand-crafted wines. As a family partnership, Nancy and Roger Battistella handle all aspects of the business from concept to production, with additional support from a dedicated staff committed to making your visit enjoyable. The winery is housed in a splendidly restored turn-of-the-century Dutch-reform barn in which tasting room visitors are charmed by spectacular views of Six Mile Creek valley and vineyards, along with landscaped gardens.

Located within minutes of Cornell University and Ithaca College, as well as the beautifully developed Downtown Ithaca area, our winery is a hub for information on local tourism including restaurants, shopping facilities, lodgings, and nearby state parks. As a member of the Cayuga Wine Trail since 1987, we collaborate closely with neighboring wineries to increase consumer knowledge and enjoyment of wines produced within the area. Positioned at the southern-most end of the Cayuga Wine Trail, our winery is an excellent starting point to begin your wine tour.

Packing List

by Michael_D

I am making plans...buying a farm im nearby Trumansburg to spend the summer out of the Florida heat. In the spring when its lacrosse season and in the fall when Harvard/Yale/Dartmouth(et al) play Cornell in football at Schoellkopf Crescent I miss Ithaca so much I could cry.Ths cool winds off Cayuga Lake and the myriads of summer fairs and carnivals that abound in surrounding towns make the Finger Lakes a veritable paradise. To me at least.

Wine Tasting

by TRimer

The Finger Lakes Region is the oldest wine-producing district in the East, offering visitors beautiful scenery, informative winery tours and tastings of some of the finest wines made today. For a taste of the Cayuga Lake Wine Region, sample the estate wineries along the Cayuga Wine Trail that starts on Route 414 in Seneca Country and works its way southward around the lake. Take a guided tour or strike out on your own. Just look for the signage around the lake!
