    Pierri's Central Restaurant: breakfast time....

    by davecallahan Updated Mar 23, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We always seem to be passing through Painted Post in the mid-morning, just in time for a late breakfast. So we stop into Pierri's because it is right off the US17 exit (or at least it used to be before they put that can of worms highway in).

    Couple eggs over easy and a cup of coffee with a side order of toast does it for me. My wife gets a stack of pancakes and some coffee (two cup minimum). We drop a $10 bill on the tab and we are on our way again.

    This is a nice clean family-style restaurant. Unpretensious; just good hot food quickly.
    If it's a good day, you'll get a smile from the waitress.

    annual history lesson.....

    by davecallahan Updated Mar 23, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Colonial Days in Painted Post is an elaborate history lesson put on for the town (and tourists) by the local historical society, et.al.

    There is a parade, bands, several speakers to enlighten everyone about parts of the area history, food tents with firemen manning the grills. They bring in a touring company that has midway rides and put them in the town park for the weekend. On the ball field, make-up teams play each other in a friendly competition (small cash prizes, but mostly just top-dog positioning). Recently they have added a golf tournament also (at Corning Country Club).

    If you are going to be in the Painted Post area, you may want to check the website below to see if the Colonial Days will be happening during your visit.

Painted Post Warnings and Dangers

    safe

    by davecallahan Written Apr 27, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Painted Post has a crime undex below the average for New York State; that means it is safer than most towns especially for any violent crimes. The only crime where it even approaches the "average risk" level is thefts. There are not registered sex offenders in the area.

    You can consider your visit to Painted Post to be relatively safe but you should also remember to do those little activities that keep yourself safe: locking car doors; keeing an eye on the kids; locking valuables in the trunk of the car and out of sight. Be smart; be safe; be happy.

    a safe place to visit

    indian statue

    right in the village square (Hamilton at Waters), they have this bronze indian statue (green patina from age).

    I have no idea what it signifies but if you read through the INDIAN STATUE section of the website below, you too can be completely mystified.
