The Binghamton Neighborhood Project
Today I wanted to quickly highlight a major project undertaken by my former advison, David Sloan Wilson. The Binghamton Neighborhood Project is a multidisciplinary academic and community effort to understand the culture and ecology of urban living in the city of Binghamton, New York. The goal is not just to study but to improve the quality of life within the city. In many ways, my own research into the historical demography of the Southern Tier grew out of a desire to add a historical dimension to the project.
