Corning NY is located in upstate New York's Southern Tier / Finger Lakes region. Corning, well known for glass, is home of Corning Glass. Corning & the surrounding area offers a vast array of attractions in addition to Crystal Glass and Gaffer Art.
A Few Options to Consider:
Lodging at the Gaffer Inn, is a charming 4-room Inn offering boutique accommodations featuring Corning's history of glass creation and design. Located on historic Market Street in Corning, NY, it was a concept that was dreamed, created and first opened its doors to guests in 2010. At this time it was known as the Inn at the Gaffer Grille as is was situated above the restaurant the Gaffer Grille & Tap Room.
At the end of 2017, the decision was made to close the Gaffer Grille & Tap Room and make way for a new business concept, a casual quick serve restaurant, Burgers & Beer of Corning. While the restaurant space was being renovated, it was the perfect opportunity to rebrand and completely renovate the Inn located directly upstairs.
Lodging at the Gaffer Inn is located within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, the widely known Corning Museum of Glass and the Rockwell Museum. It is also within close proximity to the multitude of Finger Lakes Region's attractions and activities such as Watkins Glen Race Track and State Park, the Windmill, over 100 wineries/breweries/distilleries, area orchards, and outlet shopping.
The Inn rooms include many features and amenities to maximize relaxation and comfort during your stay. In each room you will find new wall to wall carpet throughout, pillow-top mattress, plush leather couch in front of a fireplace, desk, free WiFi, smart TV's, wet bar and small dining area.
During your stay at Lodging at the Gaffer Inn, you will want to check out the new Burgers & Beer of Corning for a quick, delicious meal.

Waverly NY Little League Baseball Photos ...looking back
It was a cold spring morning as the Waverly Little League began clearing the press box of last year's debris, in preparation for the new season of ball. Hidden away, deep beneath the piles of old scorebooks, helmets and jerseys; was a small white box, withered and damp from years of exposure The box contained pictures from the 1940's and 50's of the fields being leveled, the bleachers erected, and the dugouts constructed. It also included faces of our early players, umpires, coaches, parades and games. In honor of the communities long standing love of the game, 320 photos were digitized and made available through Shutterfly. Additionally, the Waverly Library and Bakley Photo developed a historic exhibition of the project; including canvas art and bound albums. While this exhibition aims to protect and preserve local history, it also serves to celebrate generations of community involvement in the Waverly Little League organization, established in 1949. The project was made possible with funding from the Community Foundation for South Central New York-Broome Library Foundation Fund.
