About the Author

About the Author: Laurel Guy knows Ithaca — its people, landscape, architecture, history, and spirit. She arrived in January 1981, terrified of driving in snow. Once she discovered Smartwool socks, Sorel boots, and all-wheel drive, she never looked back. A founder of the Ithaca Artists Market and Circus Eccentrithaca, she served as director of the Ithaca Festival and the Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts. Guy is a 35-year resident and one of the most successful Realtors® in the region. You might find her downtown walking her dog Hugo, or out in the field making plein-air pastels.
