SAMANTHA BROWN’S PLACES TO LOVE
The Southern Finger Lakes, NY

 

At the Corning Museum of Glass, Samantha starts off her visit to Crystal City by learning about the history of glass and why Corning is the center of the glass world. She then takes a stroll through Corning’s Gaffer District, and meets master engraver Max Erlacher at his Steuben glass collection shop. Heading to Bath, Samantha discovers the Betty Kay Bake Shop and their tasty “English-cut” donuts, and goes on a cemetery tour with the “cemetery lady” which concludes at the historic First Presbyterian Church of Bath, a certified Tiffany glass sanctuary. At the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum, Samantha learns all about this little-known American treasure, “the founder of the American Aircraft Industry”. Taking a stroll along the Finger Lakes, Samantha finds out why this region is highly recognized by their wines at the Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery.
