We have an excellent educational system in the area from primary school to higher education at SUNY Broome Community College and Binghamton University. This is an economically feasible area to reside in, with reasonable property values and a fair cost of living. Binghamton is in a rather central location in New York with most larger east coast cities easily reachable within a few hours' drive. The area showcases all four seasons and allows for a variety of sports; we even host a major sporting event each summer: The Dick's Sporting Goods Open, which is an event that our company has sponsored every year since it began in 1971 as the BC Open, and the event generously gives back to our community through local charities. Binghamton is also a good cultural center with strong involvement in the arts and culinary experiences: we have many exceptional local restaurants, pubs, breweries, coffee roasters, and a growing farmers market; we are currently the construction manager for the renovation of the historic Carnegie Library into the new SUNY Broome Hospitality Center - it will include production kitchens and educational spaces to further the culinary and hospitality industries in this area and beyond.
