Oneonta Things to Do

    Like any upstate New York city, it doesn't take long to reach the fields, and personally, I think that whenever you're in the city, it's good to take a break and see some fields for at least a small part of the day.

    Nice place, and very tasty food. If you are adventurous, you will like nearly all of their offerings. The bread needs serious work, but they try. Most items are served as Tapas, small portions of which you order two or three per person. Good wines.

    Favorite Dish: The funky roasted butternut squash and the shrimp with chili and cilantro. The marinated baby squid is tasty too. Service staff is a little food "ignorant".

    It's not at all like New Orleans after Katrina, but if you leave something too close to the river overnight, it may well be gone, and not because anyone stole it.

Oneonta Off The Beaten Path

    SUCO, while it sounds like a swearing Russian, actually stands for SUNY College at Oneonta (where SUNY stands for State University of New York). I didn't find all that much to do there, but there's a nice pond with a path around it. From Main St, turn onto Gault Ave (one way), go up a block, then turn left and immediately right again onto East St. On the fifth block, you'll come to a three-way fork where you bear right. Then make the first left and follow that road to SUCO.

    If you come north up Maple St just past Cedar St, you find a completely random park. Could be a nice place just to sit, though the fences are all wire and you can see into everyone's backyards.

    Youngs Field used to be an airport. You won't find planes there anymore, but you'll find the hangars and the runway (now grassy). Take exit 16 off I-88, go south on 47 (the intersecting road), take your first right onto Youngs Road and go all the way down to the end.

    Home of the National Soccer Hall of Fame, and 25 minutes from the National Baseball Hall of Fame (in Cooperstown). If you're into the "museumey" type of thing we've got it. People gather on the banks of the Susquehanna every May to cheer on the General Clinton 70 mile Canoe Regatta, which always seems to be won by a Canadian. But it's alwys fun. Have someone meet you at the end for a drive back if you canoe down.

    Equipment: Uh, hello, a canoe? Maybe some paddles? And most people bring granola bars too.
