Binghamton Town Reviews

10 reviews
All Categories
housing in the area varies by location, some areas are much older but well maintained homes and the newer homes are all in relatively good condition. abandoned or vacant homes exist but are mostly located in the downtown area or near downtown. housing is pretty cheap, but you get what you pay for. utilities are ok, but if you aren't careful they can become overwhelming. the best and worst places to live are as follows (best-worst) South side, West side & East side tie, and North side.
Review Binghamton Town
public transport is available, pedestrians and bicycles are very safe in the area, parking is always available, and most of the necessities can be reached by a moderate walk.
great opportunities, but the people have to chose to exercise. there are lots of people far over weight, but its balanced by the majority of younger generations working out.
