Things to do in Binghamton

Roberson Museum & Science Center Roberson Museum & Science Center Binghamton, New York
The Roberson Museum and Science Center in Binghamton, New York offers the community and visitors a unique experience in history, art and science education in a magnificent setting, the Roberson mansion, along with a visitor's center that offers visitors a small introduction into the historic areas and important contributions its companies made to the development of the industrial age of America. The visitor center contains the Susquehanna Heritage Area exhibits that highlight the Heritage gallery, a 50 seat theater, interactive computers and a changing gallery. The gallery considers the many exploits and contributions of the Susquehanna heritage area in regards to its social, cultural and architectural aspects that pertain to the community. Their gift shop offers gifts for all people, with an outstanding display of books, decorative cards, toys, artworks from local artists, jewelry and Christmas ornaments. It also contains canvas bags, pottery, clothing and more with high quality items and low prices. The Roberson Memorial, Inc. was started with the will of Alonzo Roberson, to create an educational center for the entire community in 1934, and was called the Roberson Memorial Center. It opened in 1954, inside the beautiful Roberson mansion, so the Binghamton Museum of Fine Arts moved all its collections there to augment the outstanding collections already located there. In 1966, an addition was constructed that added more galleries, office, the Link Planetarium and a theater. In 1984, the A. Ward Ford wing would be added that contains modern vaults, the Decker Life Science Center and a collections preparation space. The mansion's carriage house would be transformed in 1996, becoming a multipurpose educational center, as well as adding the Clayworks, a modern pottery studio. At the same time, the New York State Heritage Area Visitor Center would be added, although it was owned by the city. The gorgeous mansion and annex across the street from the Roberson would be acquired by the center in 1994 and is now called the Decker Arts and Cultural Center. Alonzo Roberson, Jr. was born in Binghamton in 1861 to Alonzo Sr. and Lydia Titus Roberson. Alonzo Sr. had come to the region in 1852 as a carpenter, and since he was an excellent businessman as well, bought the Marsh and Gilbert Lumber Company and then renamed it the Alonzo Roberson Company. Alonzo Jr. married Margaret Hays, a local school teacher in 1887, and in 1904, they moved from their Main Street location to the elite Front Street/Riverside Drive area of Binghamton, where they hired C. Edward Vosbury, a local well known architect, to design their house, an Italian renaissance revival style that would have all the modern conveniences. That design included an elevator, private bathroom for every floor, dumb waiter, gas and electric lighting fixtures, central heat, intercom system, and like many of the houses in that neighborhood, a billiards room and ballroom on the third floor. The plan would also include a three level servants' wing that would be added to the back of the house. Alonzo, Jr. chose the NYC firm of Pottier & Stymus to do the interior of the house, with silk damask stretched across the walls of the library-living room and the reception room. The mansion's main hall would be painted, stippled and then glazed before being decorated with outstanding Dutch metal, stenciling and hand-painted decorations. To make the interior more elaborate, each of the rooms on the first floor had different kinds of woodworks. There was a tall wrought-iron fence installed to enclose the estate, and when it was all finished in 1907, it would be for a total cost of $107,000. Alonzo, Jr. died in May, 1934, having been the president of the Roberson & Son Lumber Co. and the chairman of the board of the Marine Midland Bank.

Ross Park Zoo
Ross Park Zoo Binghamton, New York
The Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park in Binghamton, New York was opened in 1875, which makes it the fifth oldest zoo in the United States, and is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The lovely 90 acres of land that was donated by Erastus Ross, a local rich businessman who stated in his will that he wanted the land to become a park that everyone in the community could enjoy. It was very easy for the visitors of that period to come to the park since there were electric trolleys that took them all over the city, and the park also houses a roller coaster ride, carousel, swings and a bear exhibit, with band concerts playing in the park all summer long. With the advent of the auto, two world wars and the Great Depression, the park would experience some decline in business, and soon the USDA threatened to close the park because of its sub-standard displays, but in 1966, concerned people formed the Southern Tier Zoological Society so that they could raise funds to improve the park and zoo facilities. Erastus had donated enough money to run the zoo for many years, wanting it to be free for the entire community, and the carousel that operated on the outskirts of the zoo's entry way, but after many years of declining enclosures and animals needs, the zoo had to invoke a small entrance fee; although the carousel if still free. Because of the financial situation and poor leadership, the zoo lost its accreditation in 205, but after turning things around, it regained it in 2009. It houses some 187 animals with a growing number of exhibits that showcase grey wolves, tigers, binturong, penguins, leopards, tamarins, reindeer, an aviary and other species of animals that are often found in a zoo. Since it is so old, there is a lot of history here, and this makes it more interesting. On the outside of the zoo's entry is a pavilion for barbecuing, rest rooms and a small park; and inside, the old lions den is completely restored and now is used for educational programs with the visitors sitting behind the bars. The zoo is located adjacent to the Discovery Center, the hands-on children's museum that is spoken of farther down this page.

Since opening, the small school has welcomed more than 300 students into its classes every year. Although it is located in a public high school, the Serling school acts as a magnet fine arts curriculum inside a normal heterogeneous high school, and it has become a model for the entire state of New York.

The Discovery Center
Discovery Center Binghamton, New York
The Discovery Center of the Southern Tier is a hands-on interactive museum located in Binghamton, New York inside a 22,500 square foot structure that was created by, for and with children. As is the growing national and perhaps international trend, fun and learning are flowing together in unique hands-on displays that have been designed with imagination, research and attention to the spirit and needs of today's learners, in a safe, happy and engaging environment. The center encourages play, builds self-esteem and sparks creative thinking in an ambient specific theme that is community specific, and yet allowing room for global discoveries with 30 interactive exhibits where children can paint, fly, hop, drive, perform, shop and dig. Children can learn to fly in the A-10 cockpit, direct an emergency call, dine out in an international restaurant, groove in the Recollections III display or sample simple science exhibits, or even shop smarter in the child's viewpoint, which could lead or become the first steps that prepare children for success in an ever changing world. There is a marvelous story garden that contains 13 interactive displays that concentrate on children's literature themes, and the newest display, Pedal Power. The center also offers family workshops, summer camps, multi-cultural awareness, art expressions, licensed preschool, state certified K-5 after school program, as well as in school educational programs that are done during the school year for grades K-5, with all the programs adapted to the age and grade specific child. The center opened in 1988, after having gone through some serious introspections of the community and the Binghamton Junior League, aspiring to open a children's museum that would designed to accentuate the awareness of "self" but in relation to the community, environment and world. In 1986, they negotiated a utility building in the historical town park, just opposite the town park's zoo, mentioned earlier. The facility had been a garage/maintenance building that had to be renovated and transformed to house the new project, and after a successful fund drive, the structure was completed and opened in 1988. To help with the transformation and the zoo, a new exhibit was installed called "Dinosaurs" that opened in 1990 and brought the area, zoo and especially the center great success. Current exhibits include; the new solar clubhouse, Susquehanna River trail, a Village of Gingerbread-Our Community, Santa's Workshop, Open Wide Dental, EcoKids and Pedal power.

Phelps. Phelps was a successful businessman, banker, mayor of the city and Republican elector for Abraham Lincoln. The structure was designed by Isaac G. Perry who eventually would become the architect of the New York state capitol in Albany. The elaborate mansion would be bought by the Monday Afternoon Club in 1905, which was a women's civic organization that had a big ballroom built in the back that same year to hold its weekly meetings that continues to this day. The ownership of the mansion would be transferred to the Phelps Mansion Foundation in 1986, and made a museum by the state in 2005. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. The mansion is built with exquisite rare woods, glass and metal with a spectacular Baccarat crystal chandelier from 1890 in the ballroom, with other rare chandeliers located in the other rooms of the house that reflect the Victorian period.

Bundy Arts & Victorian MuseumBundy Arts & Victorian Museum Binghamton, NY
The Bundy Arts and Victorian museum in Binghamton, New York is the former home of the Bundy family that began with Harlow Elisha Bundy, who was born in Auburn, New York in 1856, and along with his brother, Willard incorporated the Bundy Manufacturing Company in 1889 that made and marketed many of the world's first time recorders. As the nation became more industrialized, time was beginning to become more important and used as an increment of payment. Their time recorder allowed workers to clock in and out using a mechanical device, instead of the age old usage of human time keepers, that became more useful and necessary as time passed by. Harlow would become the general manager and treasurer, acting as a fierce manager, their company would become very successful and grew into one of the biggest industries in the city and soon the world. In 1900, the company would merge with other time recorder manufacturers and become the International Time Recorder Company (ITR). Harlow would oversee the transfer of all production equipment into a new state-of-the-art factory in Endicott, with offices in all the major cities in the nation, and France, England, Canada and Germany. He became immensely involved in the merger and consolidation of ITR with a number of other big companies into Computing Tabulating Recorder Company, that would be capitalized with $12 million in stock. Then in 1924, the company would change its name under the leadership of Thomas J. Watson, to the International Business Machines. Harlow began to become ill in 1915, so he resigned as the treasurer and general manager of ITR, but stayed on as the vice-president of the CTR company. He moved to California, to Pasadena, and spent much of his semi-retirement inside a magnificent mansion that overlooked the most gorgeous valley there. Harlow passed away on March 21, 1916 from a heart attack, and became known as the "father of the time-recording industry". He had pioneered his small time recorder company into an international business, with worldwide fame and great success, and the company that he had started would eventually evolve into IBM. Permanent exhibits include; the STBA Hall of Fame exhibit, African gallery, permanent collection, the golden age of broadcast media exhibit and the barbershop exhibit. Willard Bundy, a jeweler by trade patented the first time recorder in 1888, when his brother, Harlow was a successful attorney and entrepreneur that saw a wonderful opportunity and helped his brother open their company. One of the finest collection of time recording clocks can be found here, with surprising artistic value. The third floor of the mansion has become the Art Gallery, that offers a venue to emerging artists, along with established artists, that changes on a monthly basis. Past exhibits have included; Albert White, Kathye Arrington, Belinda Messersmith, Karen Lee Cook, Joan Deuel, Rob Stachyra, Julie Davenport, Magill Madigan, Teknari, Paul Kerin and Jenn McNamara and many others.

Walk of Fame/Sidewalk of Stars
Walk of Fame/Sidewalk of Stars Binghamton, NY
The Walk of Fame/Sidewalk of Stars is located in Binghamton, New York, the city's version of the famous Hollywood walk, but it is found in front of the Metrocenter's Court Street entrance, and since the city is famous as the birthplace of Rod Serling, it seemed only fit that Rod's bronze star would be the first one installed in the growing famous walk. The stars that would added over the years would include those individuals that had gained some fame after leaving their home town of Binghamton. In fact, Rod's house is still located at 67 Bennett Avenue, and it probably looks like it did when he grew up here, from 1926 to 1941, when the family had to move into an apartment on Chapin Street when times got tough. During his adulthood, Rod would often come back here to his hometown, nostalgic for some reason or idea. Some of the other stars belong to fairly well known movie actors, like Richard Deacon who played Mel Cooley on the Dick Van Dyke Show, Jim Hutton who starred in a few movies in the 1960s, including John Wayne's the Green Berets, Hugh Herbert, a comic motion picture actor of the 1930s and 1940s and actor William Prince. Other stars belong to band singers Val Stevens, Stuart Foster, jazz musician Slam Stewart, artists Douglas Arthur Teed, Henry Wilcott Boss and Catherine Bartoo, as well as author John Gardner.

Endicott Visitor CenterEndicott Visitor Center Binghamton, NY
The Endicott Visitor Center in Binghamton, New York is also home to a museum, Carousel gift shop, and the Community Meeting Hall and Banquet Facility, all inside a magnificent old colonial hall that was completely renovated in the 1990s. The gorgeous mansion contains exhibits about the start of Harpur College, IBM, the corporate leadership of the Endicott Johnson Shoe company and the significant influences that the college and the industries in the region had on the development of Endicott, Johnson City and Binghamton. The three story, 16 room family residence of Julia and Alphonsus Bowes, when Julia had been the executive secretary to George F. Johnson, and it stayed a private residence for more than three decades. After WWII, the house would become known as the Old Colonial Hall and acquired by Syracuse University. The small institution would evolve into the Harpur College and then Binghamton University, until it moved to Vestal in the mid 1950s, when it would then serve as the administration offices of the Union Endicott School district and then a neighborhood church. In 1994, the village of Endicott bought it and made it into a visitor's center, museum and community meeting hall. Some of the outstanding exhibits located inside include the George F. Johnson-Endicott Johnson Shoe Company that describes the early years of Johnson's life and experiences that would become the basis for his business philosophy that became known as the Square Deal. Johnson believed that if you paid your employees decent wages and treated them with respect, they would return the loyalty, and under his leadership the company grew to employ more than 20,000 workers and creating one of the biggest shoe companies in the nation. Johnson and his family would donate money, land and buildings to offer health care, housing and recreational facilities for the whole community. Another exhibit is the Thomas J. Watson Sr. Room that was the birthplace of the computer, that looks at his professional career along with the development of IBM. Watson took over the management of the Computing-Tabulating-Time Recording Company, stressing research, education and constant development for new machines, and started a strict corporate culture that promoted marketing ideas based on listening to the needs of the customer. Shown in the exhibit are some early business machines produced by companies that eventually grew into IBM. The Gateway Gallery houses many exciting displays that are sure to help you understand the nature of these pioneers of industry.

Vestal MuseumVestal Museum Vestal, NY
The Vestal Museum in Vestal, New York is found inside the original 1881 Vestal Train Station that had been located along the tracks of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad by Main Street, used from 1882 until 1959. Once the station was forced to close, the town bought it and moved it to where it sits today, next to the library on the parkway in 1972, renovating it and modifying it so that the town could use it as a museum. The unique style of station has continued to be maintained and somewhat modified to offer gallery space for the numerous displays. It houses both permanent and changing exhibits along with a marvelous educational program that helps students and the community learn more about the region and the railroad that seemed to bring it closer. One of the current exhibitions is called Memories of Childhood Past and runs until December 23, 2010, with displays from the early 1900s to the late 1950s, and includes the depression, WWII, the Korean War and school, business and personal memories. When the pagoda style station was constructed in 1881, with steeply pitched roof and distinctive curves over the eaves and circular roof supports, that structure would become a model for many other stations that were constructed along the tracks west of Binghamton, and included Apalachin, Elmire, Horseheads, Nichols and others. Today, the Vestal station is only surviving example of that early pagoda style. The station would take care of a constant flow of traffic, until 1949, when the railroad launched a streamlined passenger train named after their mascot, Phoebe Snow, and it began making daily stops at the Vestal station on its trips to and from Hoboken, New Jersey to Buffalo, New York, until August 1959, when the Phoebe Snow made her last stop in Vestal. During the next eight years, the structure would be empty, except for the memories and ghosts of thousands of travelers that had passed through here. Then in 1967, Vestal supervisor, Edwin L. Crawford tried to get it donated to the town, since he feared it might be lost since it was slowly deteoriating, but instead it became a warehouse for the local lumber and supply company, while it just sat there and deteoriated more. But in 1971, it was sold at auction, with the town putting in the winning bid, so that it could transform it into a museum, but one of the conditions of the sale was that it had to be moved. During December, 1972, a month after the last and final deadline had passed, the old 73 foot, 63 ton train station was loaded onto a big truck and move a half mile to the new location where it sits today.   

Binghamton Mets Baseball Club
Binghamton Mets Baseball Club Binghamton, NYThe Binghamton Mets in Binghamton, New York, are a minor league baseball team playing in the Eastern League, the Double A affiliate of the New York Mets, and they play in the NYSEG stadium in Binghamton. Before moving here in 1992, the franchise played in Williamsport, Pennsylvania from 1987 until 1991 as the Williamsport Bills, being affiliated with the Cleveland Indians in 1987 and 1988, then affiliated with the Seattle Mariners in 1989 and 1990, before being bought by the Mets club in 1991. Their Bills franchise had been two different franchises, with the owners moving the Bills to Hagerstown, Maryland after the 1988 season, while the Eastern League franchise based in Pittsfield, Massachusetts moved back to Williamsport before the start of the 1989 season. It would entail a number of moves for the franchise that had been based in Williamsport in 1976 and then moved to Jersey City, New Jersey, playing from 1977 to 1978 and then Buffalo, New York from 1979 through 1984. The team was able to place in the number one spot in 1994 and 2000 while playing in a number of playoffs; which it never has won. But the town supports it generously and enjoys watching the games all summer long. They are going to be playing in their twentieth season this summer and hopefully they can go all the way.
