At Beekman 1802, we celebrate the ability to create something out of nothing which is why Corning, NY’s Historic Gaffer’s District is the perfect home for this summer’s pop-up shop. What’s a gaffer? A gaffer is a master glassblower and a tribute to Corning’s glass heritage.
Corning is the home of the famed glass company of the same name as well as the home of the stunning Corning Museum of Glass, but even more importantly it is the home of an indelible community spirit to keep downtown business districts thriving.
The reasons for setting up shop in the “Crystal City” are crystal clear. Take a photo tour below
The Beekman 1802 Mercantile Summer Outpost is located at 18 Market Street from May 23 through October 4
