Here at Urban Corning, we take pride in forging meaningful relationships with our neighbors and fellow business owners. As ones who like to share the “what’s what” of all things Corning, we’ve decided it’s time to publish a series of Urban Corning guides and special itineraries. From fall weekend must-do’s, to a hipster’s guide to GlassFest, to an, “Oh snap, my mother-in-law’s in town and I don’t know what to cook.” cheat sheet, we’ll have you covered.
You’ll be able to find all guides and itineraries here and a running list of our featured friends and recommended business below:
