I found a great pic of part of downtown Ithaca at night on Flickr (Scott Mulvaney).

Looks like it's the end of an Ithaca (Trumansburg) area icon:

The Ithaca area is often cited as a very safe place to live. There is crime to be sure, but most folks generally feel safe, and the crime rates bear that out. However, this year has been different for violent crime. There's been two murders in the city (including one on the Cornell campus), and one in a suburban town since late August. There have also been several non-fatal stabbings/shootings this year. Normally there's one murder in the area about every 4 to 5 years.

An article about the latest incident from the Ithaca Voice:

Very disconcerting.

Great news for Ithaca, but not so great for the other cities in the Southern Tier of New York (from the Ithaca Journal):

Here's the internet article sited in the Journal piece:

How about a little bit of some Ithaca gorge eye candy:

Every town needs a dive bar.
