Stopped on the way to Niagara Falls. Quiet shopping area, nice place to stop, have a cup of coffee and maybe brows a couple of stores. Saw interesting and unique lamps in one store, surprisingly interesting antiques in another, including real Dresden porcelain plates. Yet another store had fun old radios and old records. Enough to do for an hour.... More

This is a great stop before or after your visit to Corning Museum of Glass. It is very charming and has many restaurants and shops. We especially likes Holmes Plate 54 Restaurant for great BBQ and a friend casual atmosphere.

I think it was located on Market Street in Corning. It was worth the visit. It was several blocks of renovated older building containing an assortment of shops, restaurants ETC. Well worth visiting. I stopped to get pizza on a Friday evening and the area was hopping. It seems like a safe family friendly area.

But many shops do close early so plan accordingly. Lots of restaurant options and they are open late so you have plenty of time to eat after browsing. People could not be friendlier. Feels like walking down an upscale version of an old Main Street. Several options and lots to explore.

This a a wonderful district with so many shops and restaurants. There is a nail studio, children's shop and many other interesting places. We ate dinner at The Cellar and loved the coffee at The Soulful Cup

Too me Corning NY is over rated and especially the Gaffer District. It it just a high priced tourist attraction and caters to them. I only go to the pharmacy on Market St in the so called Gaffer District. Because it is a honest and fair priced business and locally owned.

The gaffer district was a lovely glimpse into the past. We saw a live band & sat & enjoyed the music. The shops were very picturesque & interesting.

There are a lot of neat shops and restaurants on Market St. There is live music a couple times a week in the square during the summer. It is fun to get something to eat or drink right off the square and sit at one of the many tables and enjoy the people and music.

The Gaffer District has some modestly interesting shops and interesting looking restaurants (we only ate at one), but it has nothing out of the ordinary, nothing you will not find in a hundred other small city downtowns, except perhaps the outlet where they sell Corning-branded home products and Revere Ware at great prices. The architecture is not exceptional, and it... More
