Corning Museum of Glass (known to us locals as CMOG!) -- you’ll probably leave your vehicle in the CMOG parking lot behind Black’s Auto Service Center on Pulteney Street. Logical place, too, because that particular parking area is just off NY-17/I-86's Exit 46.
You’ve parked. Now walk south to the intersection of Pulteney and Centerway. Cross the street and that’s where you’ll find the sidewalk leading to the front entrance at CMOG.
Speaking of Black’s, yesterday’s (Thursday) price for Regular gas was $3.93. High compared to states further south. When I headed out on vacation to Maryland in early October, the price was $4.21. Maryland offered a bargain at $3.55-3.60.
See the hills in the background of the Sunoco photo. The leaves are falling fast. The red sign is for the CMOG parking lot and the truck in the center of the photo is coming from the direction of Exit 46.
Now that you know where you are, here’s a picture of a Corning Inc. parking garage on Pulteney Street. I took it for the colorful trees!
Lots of construction -- I know not what! -- going on between the Corporate Offices and CMOG (CMOG is closest to you).
That’s the red CMOG flag with the American flag next to it (and flying slightly higher, as it properly should). I love the ornamental grasses that front the entire CMOG complex. Not everyone does, but I do.
One last mention... the new transportation center has suddenly popped up. Last I knew, before going on vacation, the foundations were being poured. Then as I rode through town with my daughter, I spotted the new building and was able to pull out my camera for a quick drive-by shot.
Several friends on Facebook have posted that there is snow just west of us, especially up in the hills. I can’t wait! We got gypped last winter with too little snow. This snowy scene is from 2010.
