Where is Cornell?
Cornell University’s campus stretches above Downtown Ithaca along the top of East Hill (not to be confused with the East Hill neighborhood.)
The majority of Cornell University’s campus and the surrounding neighborhood sits between two gorges — Cascadilla Creek gorge to the south, and Fall Creek gorge to the north. The Cornell neighborhood blends into Cayuga Heights in the vicinity of North Campus. To the south, the Collegetown neighborhood lies across the Cascadilla Creek gorge from Cornell, with the Stewart Avenue Bridge connecting the two; the Cascadilla Park and University Ave neighborhoods border Cornell on the west side. The historic Forest Home neighborhood rests within Cornell Plantations land — technically a part of the campus — which extends Cornell’s reach all the way east to Varna.
Cornell Neighborhood Attractions
- Cornell Cafes – There are over a dozen cafes operating in and around the buildings of Cornell University’s campus; some are maintained by the University’s dining service, but many are connected to locally-owned establishments, serving Gimme! Coffee and Ithaca Bakery products.
- Taverna Banfi – The Cornell School of Hotel Administration operates the Statler Hotel on campus, and within it, the Taverna Banfi restaurant — an excellent Tuscan-influenced bistro for students, visitors, and community members, with an outstanding view of Cayuga Lake.
- Cornell Cinemas – The classically styled Willard Straight Theatre screens over 150 titles each year. Patrons can often catch recent-release movies that are no longer showing in mainstream theaters, as well as special screenings of classic films and more obscure releases.
- Herbert F. Johnson Art Museum – Designed for Cornell University in 1973 by celebrity architect I.M. Pei (who also designed the glass pyramid at The Louvre in Paris) this architecturally stunning building features a permanent collection of over 35,000 works, representing most world cultures and spanning six millennia of art history.
- Cornell Botanic Gardens – There are several popular options for a quiet stroll within the grounds of the Botanic Gardens: the flower gardens at the Nevin Welcome Center, the F.R. Newman Arboretum, and the Cornell Sculpture Garden. Educational opportunities open to community members are also available.
