    In 1977, @Bro and David Berkowitz took a drive through Binghamton, NY to watch the sun set.

    Me and my buddy Worm went there for a card game once. Roomful of state troopers. That fucker started base dealing, caught a hanger. They beat the shit out of us and took all of our money. What a shitty night that was!

    SUNY Binghamton is suppose to be the best state school in NY.

    It’s in the middle of nowhere in NY.

    The central area isn’t so bad bc of the college. Go to the townie areas it is a shithole

    Interesting fact is it is a southern tier town so it straddles the PA state line

    Went there once and yes.

    The Roscoe Diner is pretty good.

    We stopped there on the way.

    that's funny you mention a diner. my wife's favourite thing about america is diners and i was looking for one in binghamton.

    we are flying into Stewart Airport in NY and driving to Rochester. it's only 4 Hour drive, but don't want to do that after a7 hour flight so i figured we could do 2 hours, get a hotel room and then the next morning finish the drive. Binghamton happens to be right at the halfway point.

    I lived in Elmira for a couple of years way back when.

    All the cities along the Southern Tier have really gone to shit. IBM used to be Binghamton's bread and butter, but those days are long gone.
