Welcome to the Dewitt Park Neighborhood!
Dewitt Park, named after the Town of Ithaca founder Simon De Witt, was originally known as the Town Square. It still serves as a central meeting place for community events, a vibrant weekly farmers market, local festivals, summer concerts, and a favorite downtown lunch spot for all.
Dewitt Park neighborhood, located between the residential Fall Creek community and downtown shopping district, is a vibrant mix of residential homes and commercial and not-for-profit enterprises. Some neighborhood highlights include: Greenstar Oasis Health Food Cooperative Market, Buffalo Street Books – a local bookstore cooperative, Moosewood Restaurant, Dewitt Cafe, Dewitt Park Inn, The William Henry Miller Inn, Gimme Coffee, a myriad of boutique shops, as well as several majestic churches, a synagogue and a wide range of professional and healthcare practitioners. A majority of the neighborhood is part of a nationally-registered Dewitt Park historic district that preserves a culturally-rich intimate feel while being located at the core of the city.
