Where is Downtown?
Ithaca’s Downtown Neighborhood is located in the center of the City of Ithaca. Downtown sits above Clinton Street and east of Albany Street; it continues north to Cascadilla St./Ave., and meets the East Hill neighborhood along Terrace Place.
The Downtown neighborhood is central to many of Ithaca’s other popular neighborhoods. The West End, Northside, Fall Creek, East Hill, and Southside neighborhoods are all within easy walking distance; although Collegetown and South Hill are both uphill from Downtown, they’re still very accessible.
Downtown Ithaca Attractions
- The Commons – The Commons in Downtown Ithaca is one of the most popular public spaces in the region. Features a wide selection of locally-owned restaurants, specialty shops, pubs, and cocktail lounges around a spacious two-block pedestrian mall. Popular businesses also extend west from the Commons and continue along State Street.
- Restaurant Row – This is the nickname given to the 100 block of South Aurora street, just around the corner from the Commons, which is home to about a dozen eateries. Standing side by side along Aurora Street, these restaurants are almost all locally owned; they represent a wide variety of styles and flavors, from casual to classy. An abundance of outdoor seating gives the space a street-party atmosphere in the warmer months.
- The State Theatre – Standing just off the Commons on West State Street, The State Theatre is a local treasure: it’s been one of Ithaca’s most popular entertainment venues since the 1920s, as well as an architectural landmark. The 1,600-seat theater regularly presents major national and international performers in a unique, historical setting.
- Cinemapolis – Cinemapolis, Downtown Ithaca’s five-screen arthouse movie theater, is located on the Green Street side of the Commons, offering smaller independent and limited-release films that aren’t available at the major theaters. In addition to screening current features, Cinemapolis also runs specialty screenings of pre-recorded international stage productions, as well as hosting film festivals.
- Press Bay Alley – A new addition to Ithaca’s downtown scene, in what was formerly the Ithaca Journal’s distribution center. The product’s featured in Press Bay Alley‘s signature micro-retail spaces include local coffee, hand made ice cream and chocolate, and herbal remedies.
- Dewitt Mall – The historic brick building that currently houses the Dewitt Mall (across from Dewitt Park) was once the Ithaca High School; it’s since been converted to a mixed-use building, and is home to many of Ithaca’s favorite local businesses — book stores, cafes, and an organic grocery co-op.
