One of the world's glass centers, Corning has an appropriate nickname: Crystal City. The Corning Museum of Glass, housing the world's largest collection of glass art, is one of New York State's major tourist attractions. The town's restored 19th-century buildings along Market Street, Corning's main commercial strip in the Historic Gaffer District, has interesting storefronts and restaurants and is also worth a visit.
