Explore Corning’s Rich History. “When the Brooklyn Flint Glass Works moved to Corning, N.Y. in 1868, canal boats took the long journey from Brooklyn, hauling furnaces, pots, blowpipes, molds, and more. The boats were towed up the Hudson River to Albany and poled west to the Seneca Canal via the Erie Canal. The boats then headed south toward Geneva and entered Seneca Lake, leading them to Watkins Glen. From Watkins Glen, boats floated into the Chemung Canal southbound to Horseheads. At this point, the boats met with the Fedeer Canal to Gibson. They finished their journey by poling upstream to Corning, and docking at Pine Street.” (Submitted on January 1, 2015.)
