Architectural portrait of the area around Eldridge, Chenango and Water Street in Binghamton, NY.

Three sites of note:
  • Depot Street 21 - A large warehourse/condo brick structure from the 1880s; it won the 2006 architectural preservation award of PAST, the Preservation Association of the Southern Tier.
  • The Lackawanna Train Station, surviving, somewhat miracuously, the grand schemes of "urban renewal".
  • The Derby Knitting Factory on 301 Water Street, or what is left of it after the fire of June 11, 2011.

These are the streets on which I used to walk daily. I lived on Chenango Street, one block (not even) from the Funeral Home. I would walk over the viaduct on my way downtown to shop or to pick up Mom and walk home with her. I am very sad to see the area in which I grew up so run down and not taken care of at all. My step-father was a good friend of Al Libous and we could see his store front from our apartment. I am so glad someone has captured in pictures these areas. Thanks.
