JKS, do also bear in mind that you'll need a cab from the rochester bus station to the airport. It's 5 miles if the cabbie is being honest, 8 if he's not (I went to school there). There's an economy lot which is $5.50 a day, and the shuttle picks you up at your car. Bus still sounds cheaper. Too bad you're just flying in and out; there are in fact a few neat things to do in the ROC.
Thanks, I'm still trying to figure out what to do. My husband and I are flying out together but I am returning alone. So it is bus fare one way plus round trip ($66) plus the cab. Any chance there is somewhere besides long term airport parking to leave a car for three weeks? Ha, this is what I get for trying to save $150 bucks by not flying out of Ithaca.
NeXP, are you in town now? Let's grab coffee or a drink! Anyone else around? I saw a woman with a baby and a Cornell Law bag in Starbucks this morning but I got too shy to do the whole "Are you in the law school? Me too!!" thing.
Oh and final question. A friend sent me a few Cornell Law stickers (the kind that go in the car's back window). Hub's says those are for douches. I say nothing wrong with a little school pride. Thoughts?
Here's my one tentative suggestion for relatively cheap parking in Rochester: There's a city garage behind the Eastman School downtown which is free after 5:30 PM and on weekends. During those periods, the gates are up, and you can exit for free no matter when you entered. I have no idea if they'd bother a car which was left for 3 weeks. I found this number for the garage: (585) 325-7860. Otherwise, there are few areas downtown I'd leave a car that aren't in that area (which is all metered). There are some (relatively) safe residential neighborhoods in that area, but that's not a route I'd be inclined to take. Sorry I don't have a silver bullet!
I am in town now, and would love to meet up, though I'm planning to leave for Long Island shortly, as I'd like to avoid the lovely NY rush hour traffic.
Yes, they are for douches. Law students are douches. Embrace it. Would it be less douchey to just put up a Cornell University sticker? I have one for my undergrad, but I put it in the side cargo area window in my SUV. I think that tamps down the douche a bit.
