Northwest Ithaca

Peaceful, Close to Downtown
Northwest Ithaca lies right at the end of Cayuga Lake and is just North of Ithaca College.

However, the city of Ithaca is only a short drive away for anyone who wants to experience the city atmosphere. Cass Park is a hotspot for many locals to hang out at. The park features an ice rink, athletic fields, swimming pools, and tons of green space.

The residents of Northwest Ithaca recommend a trip into the city when thirsty or hungry. Most of the highly-rated restaurants and bars reside there. Bars that are great for a round of drinks with friends include Rhine House, The Westy, Lot 10 Bar and Lounge, and The Range.

Cass Park
Northwest Ithaca — 7/10 Rating (based on 2 neighborhood reviews)
It is a quiet area, with views of the Lake. You do have to drive or Uber to the commons or the Cornell Campus, which can be annoying. Definitely not the area for someone who wants to walk to the bars.

However, it is very quiet and peaceful, and the rent is less than it would be downtown.

It is right on the bus route, that goes right to Sage Hall, so great for students. it is about a 12-15 minute drive to campus or a 20-25 minute bus ride.
