Rockwell Museum of Western Art – Corning, NY

Rockwell Museum of Western Art – Corning, NY (Location)

We stayed in the Radisson Hotel overnight. Comfortable beds and a nice sleep until someone decided to start using a concrete drill in the room above us! The day started off with low cloud or fog obscuring our view of the hill across from the hotel but that soon lifted and , with the sun shining brightly, the temperature began to climb. We had no interest in staying in our room with the drilling going on overhead so quickly packed our bags and headed to the parking lot. We had chosen the Radisson, in part, because of its proximity to everything that we wanted to see so with everything packed away safely in our Subaru Forester, we found a nice place to eat and began our day of exploring.

Gaffer District – Corning, New YorkThe last time that we visited Corning, New York, we had barely enough time to visit the Corning Museum of Glass. This time around, we had time for a bit of a walking tour of Corning’s Gaffer District.

A lot of glass! – Corning, NY (Location)

During our short loop south of the Finger Lakes in upstate New York, we visited the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York. It is quite the place. Anything that you ever wanted to know about glass from its history to its use in modern day telecommunications and satellites is covered in its displays and live demonstrations of everything from blowing glass to breaking glass.
