If you visit Corning, you can ride the shuttle bus from the Parking Pavilion to the Glass and Rockwell Museums, for free. It's very convenient, and saves you a lot of hassle. Free parking is available for all day. The bus is very comfortable, air-conditioned. and makes frequent stops. Just take I-86 to exit 46, and the pavilion is right there. Save yourself a lot of hassle.

It's not only a shop: It's an example. Along Corning main street, several shops offer beautiful glass handicrafts, with the artists working in background.
The influence of the excellent school and museum is notorious, and Corning became one of the world's best known glass manufacturing locations.
The prices... well, if we compare them with Murano...
What to buy: Glass handicrafts

This annual art festival in Corning is a two-day event on the last weekend in July. It runs from 10am to 6pm on both days and there are art sales and live entertainment and food vendors.
from the ads:
"The centerpiece of Festival of Art is the fine arts and crafts show that features handcrafted work, complemented by live entertainment and hands-on activities for children. Organized by a consortium of arts, business, and community organizations, a festival of art 2007 offers a lively and diverse art’s experience."
Sidewalk stands and tents and artists and crowds. This is one of the larger art festivals in upstate New York. The event is in its 15th year (2007) and each year it is a little bigger and better than the year before. Live entertainment is at Centerway Square and at Chestnut and Bridge Streets. Some entertainers are mobile and serenade the crowds as they move up and down Market Street.
The artists and craftspeople have works in cloth and canvas, stone and wood, glass and ceramics. There are paintings and jewelry, carvings and flowers; there are even pots and pans and a culinary lesson.
to get there:
along Market Street (East and West)

Corning scores in the "low risk" category on the crime statistics chart in all crimes but Petty Larceny (theft and shoplifting). That may be due to the high concentration of small businesses along Market Street and Tioga Avenue... eight or nine blocks of shoppes.
There are 18 registered sex offenders in the area but that is only about one in a thousand which is very small percentage.
We have been to Corning many times over the last forty years and never have had any problems. It has always been a pleasant experience whether we were walking the shopping area in the day or visiting the restaurants and night-life establishments at night.
If you just use the same precautions you would use at home, then you too will have a great time visiting Corning.
