(BINGHAMTON, N.Y.) — Mayor Richard C. David on Friday visited demolition crews at 23 Frederick St. as it was torn down, one of six blighted property demolitions across the City of Binghamton.
“Removing blight boosts nearby property values and removes harbors for dangerous activity in neighborhoods,” said Mayor David. “For residents living near these eyesores, it can be a daily frustration and concern. It’s why we are continuing to take action across Binghamton and staying aggressive tacking blight and cracking down on neglected properties.”
In addition to 23 Frederick St., the City is demolishing five other blighted buildings:
· 2 Stuyvesant St.
· 4 Stuyvesant St.
· 34 Delmar St.
· 36 Medford St.
· 40 Hotchkiss St.
LCP Group, of Vestal, is completing the demolitions for a cost of $114,250 paid by the City’s General Fund.
After the buildings are demolished, the vacant land will be sold to neighboring property owners as part of the City’s side lot program or remain permanent green space. All demolitions are expected to be complete in the next several weeks.
