Ithaca is a city in the Southern Finger Lakes region of New York. It is located in Tompkins County, and it is the largest community in the Ithaca-Tompkins County metropolitan area. This area contains the Town of Ithaca, the village of Cayuga Heights, and other towns and villages in Tompkins County. The city of Ithaca is located on the southern shore of Cayuga Lake, the largest of the Finger Lakes. It is named for the Greek island of Ithaca.

Ithaca is home to Cornell University, an Ivy League school of over 20,000 students, most of whom study at its local campus, north of town. Ithaca College is located just south of the city in the Town of Ithaca, make the town a true "college town". These two colleges, along with Tompkins Cortland Community College, bring tens of thousands of students who increase Ithaca's seasonal population during the school year. Some students settle in the area after graduation, as they find it difficult to leave the beautiful gorges and waterfalls of the area. Ithaca is truly a haven for the youth of Central New York.
