Binghamton Apartments for Rent
Although the top-rated Binghamton University may be the heart of Binghamton, this isn’t a typical college town. Binghamton is the county seat of Broome County and it is home to several major high-tech companies, including IBM, Lockheed Martin, Rockwell Collins, and BAE Systems.
With the Susquehanna River winding through downtown, Binghamton offers all kinds of outdoor adventures. Boating and fishing, camping, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, sledding, snowshoeing, ice fishing, ice skating, canoeing, and swimming are just a few of the activities available at nearby Chenango Valley State Park. Go sailing at Dorchester Park, go hiking at Greenwood Park, utilize the fitness trail at Oquaga Creek State Park, and play ball at Otsiningo Park. With so many options year-round, Binghamton residents can easily enjoy the natural beauty surrounding them.
Those choosing an apartment in Binghamton will be able to enjoy several farmers’ markets, art galleries, antique stores, theaters, and carousels! Binghamton is home to six antique carousels, all listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This unique collection – the only one of its kind in the world – also sets Binghamton apart. The oldest carousel dates back to 1920 and features two chariots and 60 jumping horses. It is located in Ross Park, which is also home to the 5th oldest zoo in the US.
With so much to see and do in Binghamton, you may never want to leave. But if you decide to travel from your Binghamton apartment, it’s a breeze with public transit. Greyhound features intercity bus service to Syracuse, Rochester, Scranton, Philadelphia, Buffalo, Washington DC, and New York City. The Greater Binghamton Airport and Tri-Cities Airport are readily available, as well.
