Binghamton, NY, a rustbelt city that has lost half its population, most of its industry, and the only way is up from here. Defining moment has to be monthly Art Walks which have revitalized and given us hope for people on the streets and encouraging creativity. Big Art/Little City is new tag line on City Hall. We have a Binghamton Lab group, a Maker's Space, and other groups. We are engaging in a new 10 year plan in a cool and engaging process called BlueprintBinghamton.com. We have a local dish: "spiedis"--skewered, grilled meat, Mmmmm. And a very popular Restaurant Week that supports the growing number of local restaurants. Much potential. We are hopeful.
