Food scene
Best of the best! This deli has iconic status and the freshest tastes anywhere! One of our favs is Binny’s Brooklyn Reuben sandwich and the light fresh tasting Cyprus Salad. The coffee shop next door is also a favorite afternoon drop. Especially when their breakfast pastries are half off after 5pm!

Try the pickled tomato appetizer! Yum! Pizza is always a favorite especially when paired with the fabulous Cesar salad. But really, everything is delicious! We love sitting at the chefs bar watching the food choices.

Right in our neighborhood you can enjoy the weather on the river by renting a kayak or canoe. In warm weather it’s fun to rent a tube or bring your own to drift through a series of 7 medium rapids.

A few steps across the street from us is a switchback trail to the rivers edge. The almost 3 mile trail is used by walkers, runners and joggers and loops around the pond, over the dam, on a wooden boardwalk past the rowing club and along a woodland trail. It all follows the water’s edge. It’s a beautiful walk and easy to do!

Sightseeing
Be sure to walk through the archways into the historic quadrangle. It’s an architectural old world beauty! Don’t miss going inside the law library- the original room is straight out of Hogwarts! The addition underground with glass skylights doesn’t disrupt the historic ambience.
