There are definitely jobs in this area. I feel like most people might own a restaurant, apartments, work in the hospital, Cornell or Ithaca College. I worked in Papa Johns for 2 years and if I didn't go off to college I would still be working there. They treated me very well when I was working there and they were like my second family. I still go back to see them every time I go back home.

There aren't many restaurants in this area. There is plenty of fast food places though. But there are a handfull of restaurants I just wish there was more. When it comes to being able to get groceries or gas, its perfectly fine. There are a lot of grocery stores around and gas stations it feels like there's one every couple blocks.
