There’s still hope, though, as SUNY Binghamton’s younger student population has imbued the area with more in terms of art, academics and athletics than other declining American cities. Binghamton is also located in an incredibly beautiful region, with the downtown falling on the junction of the Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers, and the neighboring areas located in lovely wooded hills.

Binghamton neighborhoods are divided into north, south, east and west. Though each neighborhood has its fair share of poverty and petty crime, some areas are noticeably worse than others. The west side is home to SUNY Binghamton, and the neighborhoods nearby are varied. The area directly surrounding the campus on the north side of Seminary Avenue has a more working class and student vibe, while the south side is more upper middle class. Each section of the west side has a variety of apartments for rent, generally ranging from $400-$600.

In terms of areas to avoid, steer clear of the north side, including the First Ward. The eastern portion of the south side, and most of the east side are likewise pretty bad. South side rentals located closer to SUNY Binghamton will be more desirable than eastern apartments bordering the Saratoga Heights Housing Projects. The east side is fairly undesirable throughout, however, you can occasionally find nicer, middle class blocks, but you’ll just have to look. These aspects shouldn’t scare you off from moving here; it’s still a fine city. Just make sure to check your area in person before committing to the lease.

Regardless of the neighborhood, you’ll find a wide variety of rentals, including apartment complexes and rental homes. Binghamton is a renter’s market, and thanks to the student population, short term leases, efficiencies and shares are all widely available throughout town. Finding a pet friendly apartment for rent shouldn’t be too difficult, though many student rentals may not be as dog friendly as places in more established neighborhoods.

So, welcome to Binghamton. With a discerning eye, you should be able to find an apartment rental that suits your every want and need. Happy hunting out there!
