Maybe I'll get home this summer for a little bit. Perhaps go eat at Joe's now that it's open again. It's gotta be better now than the last people that owned the place

Yeah, I missed the really old Joe's (back when I was a kid). And you're right about it must be better now than the previous folks.

Not all is well in the Ithaca area. Disturbing article about a juvenile corrections facility just outside of town. My brother thought about applying for a job there after the factory he worked in closed down. Glad he didn't do it now.

Short article on a new development in the city's west end:

http://www.theithacajournal.com/apps...601310315/1002

I couldn't find a pic, but there's a rendering here and a decent model too:

http://www.fabianodesigns.com/inspire/ontheboard2.html

The new health & fitness building has just broken ground in the lower right hand of the pic just above the bottom bridge on Inlet Island:

Broken ground? That bad boy is open, according to the article. It's an impressive place, at least from the Cass Park side of the inlet. but I'm going to miss the Station, not that I ever ate there.

Hey, I found a decent pic of my old hood, Collegetown (in the foreground and middle of the pic) and some of Cornell (along the skyline). I lived in 2 different apartment buildings, one not visible, but the other is the bright yellow building a bit to the left in the lower part of the pic).

Who says people from the Ithaca area are strange? Interesting article about a middle-aged man living a different lifestyle:

I found an article from back in November with a small rendering of the proposed Cayuga Green (btw, the tax abatement passed).

http://www.theithacajournal.com/apps...511150325/1002


Can anyone tell me how to get the address for the rendering so I can isolate it? I tried to right click and get the properties, but the full properties will not show up. Any help? Thanks.

Here is another article about the possible community to be built between the Wal-Mart/Lowes plaza and the Inlet

http://www.zwire.com/site/news.cfm?n...d=216620&rfi=6

The proposal is for 600 homes. I wonder what type of housing that this will entail? Even though it's close to downtown and all the stuff on Elmira Road, unless it's designed well, it still will be isolated, since everything else out there is big box and auto dealership.

^I'm pretty sure that's the same development in the Journal article in post #53. I hope the city can pull it off, but I have my doubts. Even if it comes to fruition, it probably will take a decade to get the first shovel full of earth at the pace the city moves on development.

It is. I just hope that it is done right, and won't require a bridge across the inlet to get people out of there.

^A town within a town, but the public transit will be important to its success.


I thought I'd show some pics of the Ithaca City courthouse building. Kind of a change of pace from most of the really bland public buildings downtown. I'm not sure how old it is, bit it's located across 6 mile creek from the downtown(there's a footbridge leading to the public library on the other side of the creek).

Here's a follow-up to the "new town" article whit_x posted above. This could really boost the city's reputation as well as population in Central NY.
