Neighborhood is about isolated from the rest of Ithaca, but that's not necessarily a detriment in law school. Bus does not run on weekends which can be problematic since it's a steep walk to campus from Gun Hill. Far from any convenience stores, but the complex has a vending machine and its own laundry room (coin-op). You would have to walk to Downtown Ithaca by walking down the hill (15-20 min walk), or walk to West Campus/Collegetown by walking up the hill (15-20 min steep uphill walk) to get to any stores.
