The following is a message from the Downtown Ithaca Alliance, sponsor of the Ithaca Voice:

ITHACA, N.Y. — Downtown Ithaca is the place to enjoy the best that upstate New York has to offer. Surrounded by waterfalls, lakes, and forests, nowhere else in the region can you find such a wide variety of shops, restaurants, theaters, and historic architecture.

Here’s what one resident said about the wonders of downtown Ithaca:

“Great city, great people and beautiful parks. Best Yoga studio Ahimsa, best Indian Food is Diamond resturant, best vegetarian good is at The Moosewood, best coffee is at Gimme Coffee, best Chai Latte go to Mate Factor. The Commons is a great place to eat, shop, or just hang out with friends…great place!!”
