The City of Jamestown is adjacent to Town of Ellicott and is at the southern tip of Chautauqua Lake. The town of Chautauqua, home of the Chautauqua Institution, is 17 miles (27 km) northwest of Jamestown.
The city has been a center for the manufacture of wood products such as furniture as well as a major producer of mattresses. The town was once called the "Furniture Capital of the World." Although many of these industries have migrated away from the area in recent times, Jamestown still retains a few large manufacturing plants for various multinational corporations. The city has a large concentration of citizens of Swedish and Italian ancestry.
Jamestown is noted as the birthplace of actress and comedienne Lucille Ball, as well as the childhood hometown of the fictitious Lucy Ricardo formerly Lucy McGillicuddy, her character on the popular U.S. television sitcom I Love Lucy (CBS, 1951–1960).

Singer Natalie Merchant and the band 10,000 Maniacs also originated in Jamestown. The Maniacs' gold and platinum records hang on the wall of Jamestown City Hall.

Although its primary agricultural product is milk, Chautauqua County is also the State's greatest producer of wine and jelly grapes. The area's production of Concord grapes is one of the largest in the nation, second only to California.
Jamestown also houses a high school, Jamestown High School; three middle schools, Persell Middle School, George Washington Middle School, and Thomas Jefferson Middle School; as well as six elementary schools, C.C.

An auditioned ensemble featuring students from grades 10-12, the A Cappella choir has had only 4 directors in their 85 year history, starting with Ebba H. Goranson in 1924, continuing with Donald B. Bube and Brian A. Bogey, all the way to the choir's current director Dr. Benjamin P. Bracey. The A Cappella has traveled and sung internationally at: Saint Michael's Cathedral in Toronto, Canada; Saint Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna, Austria; the Cathedral in Salzburg, Austria that W.A. Mozart served as parish musician; Saint Paul's, Westminster, and Salisbury Cathedrals in England; and the Saint Anne de Beaupre and Notre Dame Basilica in Quebec City, Canada.

Long distance railroads
Present day Jamestown is on the mainline of the Western New York and Pennsylvania Railroad which provides freight service. Amtrak provides a daily Thruway Motorcoach service between its Buffalo-Exchange Street Station and Jamestown.
Until the 1970s, four railroad companies traveled through Jamestown:
- Erie Railroad - main line passing through Jamestown (New York to Chicago)
The Erie Railroad's former Jamestown Station still exists, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
Electric interurban - the Jamestown, Westfield and Northwestern
An electric interurban railroad—Jamestown, Westfield and Northwestern Railroad (JW&NW)—connected all three above towns (Jamestown-Mayville-Westfield) and ran along the north side of Lake Chatauqua. The JW&NW ended passenger operation in 1947, continued with freight, then quit entirely in 1950. Its rails and right-of-way have slowly disappeared.
Proposed power plant
Jamestown is the site of a proposed coal-burning power plant, for which Praxair, Inc. is seeking a subsidy from the United States Department of Energy. The plant, which would have an estimated cost of over $500 million, has been criticized by environmentalists and area residents. A study by an environmental consulting firm concluded that the cost of electricity from the proposed plant would be substantially higher than that of existing power sources, and higher than the cost of energy efficiency and wind alternatives.
