    This was once a beautiful place, with boardwalks criss-crossing the water. Lately, the water has always been either too high or too low. At one point, it got so high that it destroyed the boardwalks. Sometimes, it gets so low that the pond just looks like a patch of mud. I just hope the boardwalks are fixed soon.

    If you're boating on the Susquehanna, this is a safe place to pull off. Or to start your boat ride. But watch out. It's safe legally, but it's a steep bank, and the current is quite fast.

    Owego does have a great little boat launch to the Susquehanna river. You can hop in your canoe or whatever other boat you might like & zip up the river. You'll often see people jet skiing and boating during the summer months in the area. Hiawatha island is just west of the boat launch, which is a great little place to picnic. Just be careful with the water sports if the river is low. There are camping accomodations in this area that are fun, concerts in the park in the summer, and several playgrounds for the kids. It's a fun, safe place to hang out.

    My sister and I meet here for lunch a couple times a month. The food is really good and service is quick and efficient.

    There's plenty of seating, and it feels very open - not cramped at all.

    Favorite Dish: The bread!! It's served hot and it's SO GOOD. I'd eat it as an entire meal by itself.

    The pizza is great, and the make good sandwices.

    Any pasta dish they make is worthwhile. Sauce is plentiful and tasty.

    The chicken marsala is better than the chicken francaise, but both are heavily breaded, so they aren't as good as they could be.

    In short - you'd best bring your own car if you're visiting the area. There really is no public transportation to speak of. In the downtown area everything is within walking distance, but the only way in & out of the town and to any place to stay is owning your own car. There are cabs if you must, but they are difficult to find & you can't simply hail one as you would in a large city.

    There is no Amtrak Service into this area and I also would not recommend Greyhound or any other bus company. The Broome County Airport is about 1/2 hour away. Driving is always recommended.
    Driving your own car - as there really isn't much of a public transportation system. There are a few buses that run between Broome/Tioga Counties, but I have not used them and so would not recommend them.

    Favorite thing: Wander the shops along River Row. You can find some darling specialty stores. I'd finish off a little shopping trip with dinner at Tony's Restaurant, also right along the river.

    Fondest memory: I live here, so there are many fond memories!
