  • Corning is such an historical community. The Gaffer district is full of wonderful gift shops, art galleries, coffee/tea houses, restaurants, museums, theater and a centrally located park. There is parking (for a fee) behind many of the stores along Dennison Parkway and if your lucky enough you can find a free parking space along historic Market Street. I love the city of Corning. It's clean and there is much to see and do.
  • I loved this downtown.Amazing shops, plenty of parking, great food. Had a very nice old town kind of feel to it. Shops for a wide selection of tastes. They have a beautiful park behind the main street as well.
