    Binghamton is very diverse. Some sections of the town are upscale, well-kept-up and other areas are downright dirty with litter and broken windows and cracked pavement. There are a vast range of neighborhoods to visit in Binghamton.

    The present areas designated as neighborhoods are:
    CENTER CITY.... railroad tracks south to North Shore Drive
    EAST SIDE.... railroad tracks east to Bigelow Street
    FIRST WARD/ELY PARK.... Clinton Street region
    NORTH SIDE.... around Chenago Street
    SOUTHSIDE EAST... centered on Saratoga Heights and Felters Road
    SOUTHSIDE WEST... Corbett Avenue
    WEST SIDE... by Riverside Drive

    The city in general is trying to help the neighborhoods to clean themselves and improve their environment.
    Center City Coordination (C3) Program, EBBA (Eastside Better Business Association), First Ward Association, The River Crawl, The SouthSide Project, West Side Festival are all city sponsored/supported community efforts for general improvements.

    Speedies and Lupos speedie sauce

    by LaraAnn1081 Written Feb 2, 2007

    I'm not sure if that's the correct spelling, but Speedies are everywhere in Binghamton. There is even a speedie festival. We like speedies so much that we get Lupo's speedie sauce delivered to us in Ohio. Other people who have had it at our house or at a cookout have also started ordering it online!
