Sitting on top of East Hill with Cornell University, with over 20 bars and restaurants within short walking distance of each other and Cornell, Collegetown provides students, locals, and visitors various convenient establishments for drinking, shopping, and eating! There are several very good Asian restaurants, as well as Greek, Mediterranean, Latin, Indian, Pizza, Sandwiches, Burritos, American, and Continental cuisine.
