This company is Just now completing
ten to a dozen new buildings on South
Hill in this oity. We also understand
they are ready to grade streets to connect
with the new bridge crossing and this
connect their grounds more directly with
East Hill and the University; of the location
of their pioperty too much cannot
be said in commendation. Every lot can
be utilised for building purposes and lies
in full view of Cayuga lake and Cornell
University. For residential attraction it
is without an equal.
