Ithaca more than a stone’s throw from city

Congratulations to Taylor Graham for his full ride scholarship Ithaca College (Herald, June 21).

Ithaca is in the Finger Lakes region, a beautiful part of New York state. People from the East Coast (like me) donít think of Ithaca as a stoneís throw from New York City since it is 223 miles away and a four-hour drive.

Durango is closer to Albuquerque than Ithaca is to New York City.
