A Taste of Binghamton, New York

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT BINGHAMTON?

  1. The population of the city has declined significantly in the second half of the 20th century, from a high of 85,000 in 1950, as a result of suburbanization and economic stagnation. The region lost a significant portion of its manufacturing industry, following cuts made by defense firms after the end of the Cold War. Some, but not all, of these jobs have been replaced by significant retail development and the growth of the region as an educational center.

  2. Greater Binghamton is home to Binghamton University, a driving force in the community as an academic, athletic, and arts center, along with a continued concentration of high-tech firms, including Lockheed Martin, IBM, BAE Systems, and Rockwell Collins.

  3. The median income for a household in the city was $25,665, and the median income for a family was $36,137.

  4. Binghamton has a humid continental climate, with cold, snowy winters and warm, wet summers. Snowfall is significant, with an annual total of 77.3 inches.
