...DO NOT move over here...this "City" is like a roach motel, once you get in, you can't get out. The job market is absolutely horrendous to say the least (unless you plan on starting a career at the Weis supermarket, McDonald's or as an absurdly underpaid Java developer). The crime rate is MUCH higher than what Sperling claims. Stabbings or slashing at the club, roberry, burglary, drugs, you name it, it's out there and all packed into 11.16 miles of Binghamton's glory. Almost every park or neighborhood that you visit will have a touch of "ghetto". I moved here from NYC (BIG MISTAKE) to be with family, and for the first time in my life I felt compelled to (legally) purchase a gun to protect my family at home. I am desperately looking to get my wife and kids out of this dump. I feel sorry for the kids growing up in this dilapidated community, I know I'll be getting mine out of here that's for sure.
