  • Collegetown shops and restaurants – Mostly concentrated along Dryden Road and College Avenue, Collegetown has about a dozen locally-owned bars and restaurants catering to the local college crowd. Cuisine styles range from Indian to Thai to Japanese to Mediterranean, alongside more traditional American fare. Locally-owned favorites include The Nines, which occupies a converted historic firehouse and serves the best deep-dish pizza in town. Shops include minimarts, grocery stores, and a liquor store, as well as an optician, a barbershop, and a shoe store.
  • The Carriage House – A historic landmark, as well as one of the best restaurants in Ithaca, the Carriage House is a renovated farm building from the 1800s — carefully restored and converted to a cozy cafe, serving breakfast and lunch. After the downstairs restaurant closes for the evening, the upstairs loft opens as a sophisticated cocktail lounge with a great balcony.
  • The Schwartz CenterThe Schwartz Center is operated by the Cornell University Department of Performing & Media Arts, and offers student-led theatrical performances to the public throughout the year. Productions range from drama to musical theater to avant-garde; the Center also hosts several theatrical festivals. For fans of unusual architecture, the modernist building is one of the largest and most striking features of Collegetown.
