Thanks alot Erich from Austria....geri

At one time, Clinton Street had close to 40+/- bars (most closed now 10/10). There was the 'Clinton Street Run' where you tried to have a drink in each bar in one night (made it to 3)

The Fountain of the Three Rivers (The Schuylkill) by A.S. Calder 1924

http://www.nationalinvestor.com/EJ%20story.htm http://westsidebinghamton.org/recpark.html Nothing symbolized George F. Johnson’s dedication to the concept of transforming a business enterprise into an extension of the traditional family better than a statue erected in a park that the Johnson family deeded to the City of Binghamton. In the center is seated George F. dressed in formal business attire encircled by a tanner with hide and a small girl presenting the corporate patriarch with a bouquet in gratitude for the company’s generosity to its employees and their families. Inscribed on each side: "Have Faith in the People," and "Labor is Honorable." ---1923.

Geraldine,

Love your pics! My family has had a cabin on Petonia Lake (just west of Greene) since I was a kid. I live in Minnesota now and your pics bring back loads of memories. Great work.

Best Regards, Bill

17 N. Chenango - Built in 1851 this 1 1/2 story Gothic Revival home, with its distinctive, ornate bargeboards and cross gable,belonged in 1868 to Col. Joseph Juliand, the grandson of Captain Joseph Juliand.

The street's oldest wood frame building, serving as the Post Office until 1991, was doing business as early as 1821 and miraculously escaped two disasterous fires, the first of which wiped out all the wood buildings west of it to the Chenango Canal in 1848. The second fire, in 1885, did greater damage still, destroying all the replacement buildings and those beyond to Canal Street.

The Ribbon Mill Operated as a silk mill from 1917 to present, the Ribbon Mill is now one of only two mills in the United States manufacturing hat bands and is the only mill in the nation designing its own patterns for the product.

This 19-room Italianate home was built in 1851 for William Russell and his wife, the daughter of Joseph Juliand. The site was previously home to a toll house where, from 1807 until 1838, a gate-keeper collected tolls from all those crossing over the bridge to the village.

  1. The Empire Block was built in 1849 and was originally a piano factory, with the Chenango American newspaper offices housed on the second floor. The Page Seed Company, one of Greene's oldest surviving businesses, started on the third floor of the building in 1896, but outgrew the quarters by 1902. 2. The unique raised entrance into this shop reminds us that construction of the Chenango Canal raised the water table in the downtown area to about 3 feet below ground level. The raised steps were necessary to permit construction above the water table. 3. This building was built in 1875 after a fire destroyed the previous structure. 4. The Badger Building served as a drug store for over 100 years, so it is perhaps appropriate that it now is home to Greene's only chiropractic practice. 5. The Hotchkiss and Driscall building was continuously operated as a hardware store from 1854 until 1997, and now houses a restaurant. 6. The site of the former Corner Restaurant (now Mimi's) was occupied from 1807 until an 1843 fire, after which it was replaced by the present brick structure.
