Coal Yard Cafe: Warming the Soul

For decades, 143 Maple Avenue served as the business office for a series of companies tasked with distributing coal to the city of Ithaca. Today, it continues to warm the bodies and souls of students and residents, albeit in a far more tasty manner.

The Nines — a former evening hot-spot and beloved pizza place — has been sold.

The Nines Property Sells to Local Developers in $3 Million Deal

Co-owners Mark Kiel­mann ’72 and Harold Schultz ran the business for almost 40 years, serving up deep-dish pizza and trivia nights to students and local Ithacans alike. Their retirement plans — sale of the property for housing development to Visum, another local developer — were pushed back, however, after the Ithaca Landmarks Preservation Commission filed a proposal to designate the property as a historic landmark in 2017.
