“Nice walk around with interesting shops”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

It was in the old part of town and it was nice to park the car and walk around to explore the different shops in the district. Felt a little odd being there with so few people, though, so maybe we just happened to be there at a time of the year when it's not particularly busy.

“Quaint little area for a quick visit!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We went to Market street after spending a few hours in the museum. We were in Corning as a stopover on our drive to Niagara Falls in Ontario. We had very little time to spend here - most of which went in buying things at the Corning Factory Store. Prices are not really cheap for things in that store. Then spent some time near the clock tower - had the best ice-cream ever from a small sandwich shop right at that corner near the clock tower - I believe it was called Old Towne cafe or something like that. They serve huge servings of ice-cream even for a single scoop and it was the best tasting ice-cream any one of us had. This area was nice but not something I would want to go back to spend more time.
