Possibly the most pathetic town I've ever been to. People often say upstate New York is more like the Midwest than New York City; that statement is downright insulting to the Midwest. Binghamton is an absolute shithole. It's not even nearly as nice and all-American as the Midwest, and no where near as cool and exciting as New York City. Locals are a bunch of fat Southern-wannabe Walmart-shopping rednecks with Confederate flags on their pickups. Binghamton Chamber of Commerce actually BRAGS that Binghamton was once the New York State Ku Klux Klan headquarters. My God. There's fucking one famous person to ever come out of Binghamton, Rod Serling, and they act like Serling is Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior. BIG FUCKING DEAL! You know how many famous people came from New York City area! Like 75% of all celebrities!!! Binghamton is extremely one-dimension geographically. The whole city is Main St, and little side streets off Main St. In neighboring Vestal, everything is on the Vestal Parkway. That's it. By the way the food in Binghamton sucks. Upstate people really have no clue when it comes to food (except for wings though, that is ONE contribution Upstate NY made to society). It's also colder than southern Alaska in the winter. Whoopey.
If Spiedies are so fucking great why has no one ever heard of them? If they were actually good, why no national recognition?

1) The place that will make you glad to be anywhere but there for the rest of your natural life.

2) A city in Upstate New York whose only reason for existence is the State University situated there. This sad fact is not widely recognized by residents and causes a great deal of animosity toward the students whose money keeps the shit-hole from becoming a ghost town.

3) The Forsaken Lands.
I may have a debilitating brain disease, but at least I don't live in Binghamton.

An industrial wasteland where parents send their spolied Long Island Kids to get a NYU comparable education, but the kids are too fucking bratty to accept anything other than going to Boston University and having their balls powdered while their new BMW's get a new pair of rims. Oh, and the cloudy weather makes everyone insane. Smoke weed everyday.
Which way to Pepe's nigga?

A small city in upstate New York located near the New York - Pennsylvania border, approximately 60 miles south of Syracuse. Binghamton is situated in a bowl shaped valley at the confluence of the Chenango and Susquehanna Rivers and is home to Binghamton University of the State University of New York system.

After a mild turn-of-the-century presence as a manufacturing center of shoes and cigar materials, Binghamton suffered a precipitous decline in fortunes beginning with the loss of its core manufacturing base in the years following the war and consummating in the closing of its high-tech industries in the late 1980's and early 1990's. From a post-war population high of about 80,000, Binghamton has now shed nearly half of its population.

Binghamton was the home of Rod Serling, host of the 1960's now cult-status television series "The Twilight Zone". The city and region suffered a devastating flood in the summer of 2006.

After years of misfortune, mismanagement and neglect, Binghamton has apparently instituted an audacious program modeling such cities as Camden NJ, Youngstown OH and Gary IN as examples of what it strives to become. This policy is achieving its goals with great success.
The very second I graduate from high school I will be moving away from Binghamton.

A bleak, bleak place. And i'm not a SUNY BInghamton student. I grew up right outside of Binghamton, and I must say that all the people who complain about the weather (and the lack of culture, and the declining economy and general feeling of soul-crushing despair) are quite right. This place is worse than Utica, man. Driving around and looking at people I see walking death. People walking their dogs look as if they're only moving as a result of being pulled by the animals-they don't seem to have the will to do anything. So they drink, and rot.

Like much of upstate new york, the city of Binghamton has been in a steady state of decline for the better part of three decades. But it was never all that great to begin with.

I think the city of Binghamton should adopt "Binghamton-because living isn't everything" as a catchphrase on whatever half-assed advertisments for the area they manufacture.
