A New Project Known As Lincoln Apartments Has Strong Backing
You may remember the old Lincoln Hotel on Clinton Street in Binghamton. Fire tore through the abandoned building in the summer of 2013.
Since then, the lot has become the construction site for a new apartment complex, aptly named the "Lincoln Apartments." This with help from funding procured by the First Ward Action Council.
"We're calling it the new Lincoln because a lot of people remember the former building that was on the site. It was called the Lincoln Hotel. A lot of people for one reason or another have memories of that and we're trying to maintain a history of the street, while moving forward." says Jerry Willard, First Ward Action Council President.
The construction project is expected to be completed by next summer and is said to have a waiting list of potential tenants for its one bedroom apartments.
