What Bert Has To Say About Binghamton Metro Area


Binghamton is a diversified manufacturing center and transportation gateway to other areas of upstate New York.. Manufacturers are varied and led today by IBM. The town itself is quiet and unremarkable, and offers little to do, although there is a good set of performing arts amenities. The central location is near several areas of interest: the Finger Lakes and Ithaca to the northwest, where Cornell University provide cultural amenities; New York City to the southeast; and the Adirondacks to the northeast.
