This was a place we had visited before when we were in Corning and had a good time. Perhaps it was the month or middle of the week, but we found most of the shops and boutiques closed. There was only an antique store and one glass shop open. There were plenty of places to grab lunch though.

Visit the "Buildings Alive" locations (each marked by a metal sign on the building) for highlights of turn-of-the-last-century architecture along Market Street East and West. Most stores close at 5 PM, except for the numerous restaurants.

The Gaffer District is a special downtown. Restored following the flood of 1972, the downtown is a great place to live (140+ beautiful apartments), loads of restaurants to nourish and enjoy every palette, shops to find so many goodies and necessary items, but also the ambiance makes it a wonderful destination any time of the year!

Everyone we travel to Corning, we never fail to take time to stroll the downtown, check out the interesting shops and local restaurants. It’s such a friendly, walkable area with neat charm. Most of what is noteworthy is on Market Street - from the Radisson to Bridge Street - but don’t hesitate to venture off Market a block or two to see what else there is. The center square is a wonderful open area with fountains and the centerpiece for larger events. This is where you’ll find the pedestrian bridge that will take you to the Corning Museum on the other side of the river (7 minute walk). Explore - it’s fun.
