Downtown Binghamton, New York is trying to reinvent itself. For the past several years, it has had a trail along its river, the Chenango. (There is a second river, the Susquehanna, which meets the Chenango at what is called Confluence Park. Today, I'd like to show you a little of the Chenango.
Growing up, I fell in love with a song about Boston, by a group called the Standells.
If Binghamton, New York, had its own song, it might have lyrics like these:
Down by the river....

I have a love/hate relationship with Binghamton, but last Friday, the mood was love.
As for the mosaics in the first picture: as soon as I have time, I will feature more of them in a future post.
Thank you, readers, for keeping me company on a summer's day lunch walk.
