Binghamton Overview

Binghamton is the home of approximately 48,000 residents. It sits on the border of Pennsylvania and the Susquehanna River passes right through downtown. The river has been known to cause several major floods in the past. The most recent was in 2006. The city is named after William Bingham who foresaw a future village at the fork of the Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers. After the opening of the Erie Canal, a canal was built from Binghamton to Utica to aid in commerce. The canal proved to be a failure. Binghamton has a hand in the arts. There are many art exhibits and galleries. Some of the attractions include a zoo(the fifth oldest in the nation), six wonderful, antique carousels that are located in various historic sites in Binghamton, which gives Binghamton the name "carousel capital of the world".
