  • did not really walk around here it was very cold the days we were here. the shuttle ran down the area and would have loved to walk it but at 5 degrees not a option for us  more »
  • we love to shop this area and just enjoy the coffee shops and old world feel. There is a little for everyone to enjoy.  more »
  • In what appears to be old working class houses there are now shops,some but not all upscale,bars and restaurants. This is a nice place to visit,day or night, and a complete surprise.  more »

  • Nice restaurants and shops, many of them unique. Hard to decide where to eat! 🍴
  • Nice community area where you may be able to catch a farmer's market or make your own picnic. Good place to stop between NYC and Niagara. If you have time on your trip go to the glass museum
  • Scenic, picturesque, cozy. What more could you ask for. I felt transported back to a quieter time, and there was plenty to do and see.
  • There are two downtowns in our area that can take you back to the time. The fist is Corning's Gaffer District and the second is downtown Wellsboro, PA. The Gaffer District includes Market and Bridge Streets in downtown Corning. However, since the majority of activity happens on Market Street, this review will center on Market Street. The merchants and Corning Incorporated do a lot for this small town, and it shows everywhere you look. Small businesses are king in the Gaffer District, from the many full-service restaurants to the retail establishments selling high-end handbags or olive oils, there's something for everyone on Market Street. There are even a few businesses that leave water bowls out for your dog. You have shops like Van Heusen, Bass Shoes, Conner's Mercantile or The Source and restaurants like Aniello's, The Gaffer, Atlas Brick Oven Pizza, and The Source Factory Number 2, Subway, and Tony R's. There are some events throughout the year that are worth attending. The area is missing universal free Wi-Fi, but many of the shops do offer access.
