Last night was what many would consider the perfect late spring evening in Binghamton. Comfortably warm with low humidity accompanied by an ever so slight breeze. The ideal walking weather. So, that is what I did. I took advantage and strolled down Court Street. This is not the first time, nor would it be the last. Each and every time that I take one of these strolls I am reminded of why so many of us do what we do; promoting everything about Binghamton - the good and the sometimes not so good with just the right amount of quirkiness thrown into the mix.
You never know when you will come across a dog standing guard in the sidewalk planter,
There are the skateboarding buddies getting together to practice their sport while
the local mallard is surveying its domain.
There are times when you will find you are not the only one out and about.
Then, again, you find that you are the only one; which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
A Binghamton stroll is just enough to clear your head, refocus and appreciate all the that our city has to offer. These offerings would not be possible if not for all the dedicated local business owners, organizations, musicians, artists and performers who make sure that my calendar is full. Thank you to all of them for making it so much easier and so much more enjoyable to do this.
