Diana Drucker, Certified Buyer's Broker Member of Ithaca, NY State and National Boards of Realtors. Many of my clients are "dog people" so when they come to Ithaca I give them a tour which usually includes driving by the Farmer's Market, Ithaca Falls, Stewart Park and of course, the dog park. Ithaca is not in general a very dog friendly place but I point out the dog park as the wonderful asset that it is. Of course some of my clients have already decided to move here because of a specific job offer but many are chosing Ithaca as a place to live because they came as tourists or read about it somewhere. For my clients, access to vegetarian restaurants, organic food, natural beauty and "dog-friendliness" are genuine reasons for moving here. It is important for tourists, residents and certainly people considering moving here. Also, my dog Daphne (whose photo appears on my Web site) spent time at the Cornell Vet Hospital last month and I met people from all over the country in the waiting room. It is definitely a big draw.
