Pardon Our Dust: Construction Season is Upon Us

Posted on Jun 12, 2017 in Uncategorized

I’ve spent my entire life in Upstate New York and I’ve learned there are only 2 seasons: Winter and Construction. Some of my favorite sights and sounds occur during Construction Season – the gentle chirps of cement trucks backing up, the blooming of bright perennial orange cones, romantic mating calls of the jackhammer.

The building at 20-22 W. Market St. has been vacant since the short-lived asian fusion restaurant Panasia shut down. With all of its kitchen equipment and decorations still in place, there has been much speculation about what type of business could occupy the space, but so far there’s been little interest. However, on Friday, a new lease […]

The Transformative Power of Alcohol

The Transformative Power of Alcohol

The Source at Factory No. 2 might be Corning’s most eclectic business. They have a combination of goods and services that you thought you’d never see all together under one roof.

It’s Day 2 and we are in the midst of an all out BARmageddon on Market Street. Volo, Hand + Foot, and The Cellar are all closed this week – at the same time – and it’s a complete BARtrocity. While I do understand that there are several other great options on Market Street, you […]

When Corning builds their version of the “Welcome to Elmira” sign, featuring all the stars who live here, Dan Driscoll is going to be front and center.
