I was thinking that parts of Watertown like Downtown and perhaps parts of Arsenal, Washington and State Streets may fit. There is public transportation, but like Cortland, it stops at around 6/6:30. http://ny-watertown.civicplus.com/Do...iew.asp?DID=47

I live in Kingston, NY which is walkable, there is a Hannaford, Farmers Market and lots of restaurants, a couple of gyms including a YMCA and a very good theater that also shows movies within the central city core. The mall is a few miles out of town (if you want to buy clothes etc) but there is a bus. There is also a bus that goes out to the ski mountain in the winter. you can also catch a bus now to Metro North in Poughkeepsie or take a Trailways bus to Manhattan. That said, the local bus schedules are spotty on nights and weekends and you will probably find life pretty constricted in the area if you don't have a car.

In terms of a village, Skaneateles may work, but has very limited bus service: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.9457...2!8i6656?hl=en

Geneva is another small city that comes to mind, but again, it’s bus system is relatively limited: https://www.myrts.com/Portals/0/Sche...-08-084338-427

Corning also comes to mind with a Wegmans not too far from its Downtown: https://goo.gl/maps/LKxRJAJ6KUC6cj8r9
