Small town living, low crime rate, and quiet. There are two grocery stores, Safeway and Savemore. They are both a five minute drive or less from any part of town. Overall, a great little town to grow up in. However, not a place for permanent residence or career advancement.

Corning is a small town and has all the expected small town charms. It is very common to be recognized by other people on the street, at school, or at work because of the tight-knit community. There are plenty of good eating spots, as well recreational areas such as parks and a bowling alley.
I love that Corning is a small town, and that everyone is involved with activities here. One thing i don't like about the town is that there are a lot of low lifes who like to steal and cause trouble, but is there a town in the world that doesn't have crime? Everyone in Corning knows each other and are very friendly for the most part. I love the fact that Corning isn't too close or too far away from very popular places which is a big factor in my opinion.
