nice website. I was back in Elmira after 15 years this past summer. It was nice to go back in time for a day, but it was also really depressing to see how depressed that area is now days. Downtown is the worst. Where is Ray's Jewelers? so many empty spaces. It did still have that safe feeling of being in a small town, but, there seems to be nothing to do that is too exciting. I drove my family to watkins Glen for the day and that was cool-Corning still has some decent shopping and some nice eateries. Elmira needs something...some kind of a draw. The whole Mark Twain thing is a nice conversation piece for about 5 minutes, Woodlawn cemetary is lovely, and a lot of the old haunts are still around. All in all I am not sure I would ever make an effort to go back-people seem to be stuck in time there. This wesite is nice for when I want to go back in time without actually having to go to the Twin Tiers. people there seems to be happy though-good for them.

Hello everybody! Recently I have received correspondence from two guests that came across my last year's December message. It was really great to hear from them. Prior to their correspondence I heard from two other people,who likewise responded to the same message. I've got to tell you it was a treat to hear from these people. Somehow being away from Elmira so many years causes me to miss the hometown. It's also nice to connect the dots of the past to the present.
Anyway, I decided to send my holiday greetings early this year in hopes that I'll hear from some more of you former friends out there.
You all have my best wishes for a Happy Channuka, a Merry Christmas, and a healthy and happy new year. Best regards to all of you and your families.
With fond memories of Elmira and the old friends,

I lived in Elmira throughout my teens, attended ECA, had a huge family, and have since gone on to become a professional musician. I now live and perform in Nashville - and nation-wide with a rather famous Country Singer playing keyboards! Love what I do, and would love to hear from anyone that was in school with me at the time! billmusic97@yahoo.com and www.myspace.com/elxr

I have lived in Arizona since 82, love the weather here and all the sunshine! I do sometimes miss the beautiful tree covered mountains around Elmira though.

Came to Elmira in 1945. Left in the early 60's & returned to NYC(home). Went to the UK, earned my Ph.D at the University of Cambridge in Philosophy & Physics, taught at several universities abroad & in the USA. I am presently retired, but doing some consulting work. I heard that Elmira has become virtually a wasteland. My only contact is that my parents are buried at Woodlawn. Anyone know od the whereabouts of Larry Taft or Thomas Boyd Lynch?

Love this web site. I lived in Elmira 49 years, been away since 1992, and still miss it. We get home 2-3 times a year. I especially remember growing up on the Southside and the summer daily swims at Brand Park. It cost only 15 cents, 10 cents to get in the pool and 5 cents for a candy bar to eat on the way home. What great times!!
