A new railroad Headquartered in Ithaca:

A picture:

I know it's not the Norfolk Southern, but at least the rails through Ithaca won't rust away. That's much to the chagrin of West End commuters:

I found a short article about my old neighborhood (a brief history if you will).....Collegetown! I was born and raised there, and saw the dramatic changes of the 50s to the 70s.

From the Tompkins Weekly online:

Came across this on Youtube. I tried to sell light bulbs to the lady who answered the door many years ago as a Boy Scout fundraiser at the house they ended up choosing. (btw, the end is 3 minutes of cherries. )
