Getting to know Binghamton

Lying in the upstate region of New York State is Binghamton, New York. This city rests on the intersection of the Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers. The city of Binghamton, NY has a multitude of attractions and sights to see for visitors and residents alike. Some of the highlights include many wonderful parks, unique boutique shops, interesting art galleries, historic museums and so many carousels that the city has garnered the nickname ?Carousel Capital of The World.?

On the outskirts of Downtown Binghamton, lies Binghamton University. The school was established in 1946 as Triple Cities College. The mission of Triple Cities College was to offer higher education to the World War II veterans that had begun to return to America. Thomas J. Watson, a founding member of IBM, viewed the Triple Cities area as a region with vast potential for establishing a springboard for college-educated youth. Nowadays, Binghamton University offers education comparable to its more expensive Ivy League universities at a significantly lower tuition rate, a true testament to the continued excellence that was established decades ago.

The Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park is one of Binghamton?s most treasured public attractions. Tucked into the northern part of Binghamton?s South Mountain, the Ross Park Zoo officially opened in 1875 and is the 5th oldest Zoo in the United States. Over the years the Zoo underwent many different changes with its most significant change coming in 1972 when local residents petitioned the city council to add funds for maintenance to the yearly budget. The infusion of funding ultimately saved Ross Park Zoo, which had fallen into disrepair and was on the brink of being closed by the USDA. Today the Binghamton Zoo is operated by the Southern Tier Zoological Society and is thriving with over 100 different species on display throughout the exhibits on zoo grounds.

Located minutes away from the Chenango River, the Cutler Botanic Garden is another place worth visiting while in Binghamton New York. It is known as a center for teaching the public about horticulture and educating students about environmental issues in today?s world. The garden also encourages visitors to appreciate the natural world around them and understand the value of natural resources that are readily available. The purpose of the information is to help people grow plants while minimizing the negative effect that this imposes on the environment. 

The Botanical Garden is free to enter and open to the public all year from dawn to dusk with self-guided tours for visitors to enjoy. The community of Binghamton uses the garden for a variety of activities throughout the year, with something for the young and the old to enjoy each time they visit.
