Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Dress Warmly!! Ithaca winters will chill you to the bone... be sure to stop by Collegetown Bagels (in Collegetown), the Harvest Deli (at the Ithaca Commons) or CTB Appetizers (if you're up near the mall) for hot chocolate!
Photo Equipment: 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.
