Hey, my hubs and I took a tour through that gorge in your second photo, I recognize it. Amazing walk on those paths. We went two years in a row for the Finger Lakes Wine Festival in Watkins Glen, and I went to elaborate measures to make us some really awesome togas for the Launch of the Lakes party.
That whole area is very, very left, liberal, and into alternative living and questioning authority. Not sure how strong the economy and job market is there, but there are some great houses. The only thing I didn't like in Ithaca was the amount of slacker kids begging for money in the streets, not just because I had the feeling that many of them were spoiled rich kids at Cornell, but they got real aggressive about it.
I think it's a cool part of NYS. I loved the Corning Museum of Glass.
