The new Ithaca Commons.Downtown Ithaca is the neighborhood that stretches a few blocks from the Ithaca Commons, the pedestrian mall in the middle of the City of Ithaca. State Street, running through the middle of the City, was closed off for two blocks around 1970 to create this scenic downtown pedestrian mall where shoppers and diners can stroll. State Street also links Ithaca (as Route 79) to Richford and Whitney Point to the east, and Mecklenburg and Watkins Glen to the west.

Our company was founded in Downtown Ithaca, and we encourage you to visit.
