A gaffer is a master glassblower, so the name is quite a fitting designation for the historic district of America’s Crystal City. With more than a hundred shops, studios, galleries, and restaurants, as well as an abundance of unique and historic architecture, and awesome annual events like GlassFest—named to American Bus Association’s 100 Best Events—Corning’s Gaffer District is five blocks of flat-out-fun. Gaining a reputation as an exceptional culinary destination as much for the world class art, the Gaffer District has been a model for downtown revitalization efforts across the country.
