and housing for students at nearby Binghamton
University line the streets of Westside Binghamton,
along with a sprinkling of historical mansions. Locals can reach downtown by crossing the Chenango River, just a short distance east of the area.
Residents love the numerous parks scattered throughout the neighborhood, including Valley Street Park, which features amenities such as a children's playground, a lighted softball field, two tennis courts, and open green space. Confluence Park, located where the Chenago and Sesquahanna Rivers meet, remains a favorite place for walking and cycling along the river trail or just sitting on park benches and enjoying the view.
