CHANG | A Love Letter to Collegetown

Last Tuesday was the last day Apollo’s served its traditional fare of slightly-oily Chinese food at its Collegetown location on College Ave. It was all a whirlwind: I had just found out the sad news about the restaurant and the walls were already metaphorically collapsing around it. Apollo’s wasn’t the first to go, nor will it be the last. Collegetown’s scenery will change constantly and we itinerant students will come and go, but the memories we make will remain tenants forever. When I started at Cornell in the fall of 2017, Collegetown looked quite a bit different.
