What's Going On Binghamton assembled a perfect look at The City of Binghamton. Now and in the past. You can see how beautiful this once farm based area was and some of the decay that has happened as this area has evolved into a cityscape. On a great note you can see some of the buildings have been well preserved and look just as fantastic now as they did back then. I wish we still had the trees though. They look beautiful and inviting in the old postcard images and bring an inviting feel to the city. There's rail trolleys and horse drawn wagons in the pictures as well. If there was such an invention as a time machine I would definitely pay to go see what my hometown looked like before I was even thought of. It looks breathtaking!
