While this is a typical tourist area the restaurants staffing and the friendliness of the people really made it very interesting. We were sorry to miss one of the areas event weeks but it made the strolling down the few blocks more interesting. We found onhy one restaurant that we wouldn't return to. Handicapped parking was the first one on... More

My daughter and I spent the day shopping on Market St. The stores are unique and it was really a fun day. Don't expect to find many deals, that isn't what this is about. You'll find many one of a kind, unique items. Looking can be just as fun as buying. There are antique shops, art galleries, clothing stores, too... More

There are several, several places to shop along Market street however, they are SOOOOO over priced on MANY things that it is almost ridiculous! Some of the eaterys are fine.. But most of it is just not worth the price!

The diversity in Gaffer District is very limited. Some more interesting clothing, shoes, electronics and please get away from this 50ies look. Most windows have no decoration at all - only things stuffed into it.

I would prefer the dentist drilling to going into any mall but I look forward to shopping in Corning! 60 miles to Corning is far more pleasurable than It is 25 miles to Rochester. I actually found shoes that fit at Bass and purchased 4 pairs on the spot. There are at least 6 pubs and a brewery, a cigar... More

We appreciated the focus on the glass industry and local history. We especially enjoyed Vitrix. We spent mucho dinero there; the clerks were most engaging....and they even gift-wrapped our purchases

Loved all the little shops and restaurants. The homemade hot cocoa at the bakery/cafe was rich and excellent. Sorges is great for a delicious dinner and the ice cream shop is a step into a time long ago.

With lots of specialty stores and charm, the Gaffer District is a fun place to "hang out". Add the Corning Museum of Glass, Rockwell Museum of Western Art the Benjamin Patterson Inn, local Finger Lakes, and very scenic areas, a visit to the Gaffer District should prove to be most worthwhile.
