The SpaceNestled in a quiet, safe neighborhood on Binghamton's West Side, this place is charming as can be.
On more than one occasion, people have said that my apartment feels like their grandparent's house. I take that as the highest compliment. There is an eclectic mix of objects and art that I have acquired from friends, family, my travels, and flea markets.
Everything has a story.
If you're curious, just ask. Guest AccessYou will have a lovely, private bedroom complete with a full size bed.
You will also have access to a shared bathroom, the common space, and the balcony.
There is a TV in the living room that you are welcomed to with netflix set up and a whole bunch of VHS movies (yeah, you read that right).
I cook a lot, and usually am glad to share. That said, please ask before grabbing a fork. Interaction with GuestsI work from home, my car and all over the place. You might see me a lot or a little depending on the day. The NeighborhoodThis neighborhood is for the homebody-type who enjoys reading, chatting with neighbors, and sitting out on the balcony enjoying nice conversation. Though you could easily retire here (and many have), it is a hop skip and a jump away from everything.
I recently overheard someone say that Binghamton is going to be the next Brooklyn. I don't know if that's true, but there is brewing around here. These are some things I recommend...
Try your hand at ceramic painting, or take an individualized lesson at KAPOW! Art Studio. While you're there, check out the incredible work at Anthony Brunelli Fine Art Gallery downstairs.
Other art spots include:
Binghamton University Art Museum
Check out Jones Park, where I swear the air is a little clearer. Take a late hike, then drive over to Kopernik Observatory & Science Center for some stargazing.
Other nature spots include:
Chenango Valley State Park
Binghamton University Nature Preserve
If you can dream it, The Shop can turn it into a crepe. Don't miss this coffee shop by day, classy bar by night! Even if you hate crepes, coffee and alcohol, the owners are so lovely it's worth the trip.
Other delicious spots include:
Lost Dog Cafe
The Whole in the Wall
Water Street Brewing Company
Galaxy Brewing Company
Lupo's Char Pit
What to know more? Just ask. I've lived here my entire life (minus three years) and am very active in the community. I can even tell you some local folk lore if you're interested (but only if you're interested). Getting AroundThere is ample free street parking.
No car? No Problem.
The house is centrally located with the 15 bus running frequently from the Greyhound station, the university, and downtown to just three blocks away.
Feel like driving or walking?
2.9 miles to Binghamton University
3.2 miles to Downtown Other Things to NoteMy sister and burly brother-in-law live downstairs, so no funny business.
Please know that I am co-founder of a very small non-profit with big ideas. I'm always on the run, but I try to respond to e-mails within 24 hours.
Also, all of the neighbors know and love me. Don't mess that up.
