What Bert Has To Say About Ithaca Metro Area

Ithaca is most noted as home to Ivy League Cornell University. As might be expected, the town is attractive and progressive, activities are plentiful, and educational attainment is high. The location, at the south end of the Finger Lakes region, affords access to nearby outdoor recreation, interesting landscapes, and a number of wineries. The economy is growing, bolstered by the university and the many small new-economy businesses it attracts.
