Audible Alarm Sounds on Court Street in Binghamton for Months
The incessant beeping of what may be a fire alarm system can be heard in the heart of downtown Binghamton... and no one seems inclined to shut it off.
The noise has been emanating from inside the closed Galaxy Brewing Company craft beer establishment at 41 Court Street for several months.
Many people who operate nearby businesses have grown accustomed to the nonstop beeping.
A woman at the Currys of India restaurant next door to Galaxy Brewing said "it's always like that." She indicated she wasn't bothered by the alarm.
A couple who often walk their dog past the shuttered business were puzzled by the nonstop chirping of the alarm. They said they've noticed it and wondered why nothing has been down about it. But a person who lives near the Galaxy Brewing site said he had never heard the alarm.
A man who was shopping at a nearby store said he believed he's heard the alarm for nearly a year.
Seth and Michael Weisel opened Galaxy Brewing in August 2013. The craft beer business also served food for several years, although the restaurant was closed in December 2018.
The Weisels could not be reached for comment on the alarm situation and no one from the Binghamton Fire Department was available to discuss the matter.
A proposal for a new Galaxy Brewing facility at the former E.H. Titchener complex on Clinton Street was presented to the city planning commission in April 2019.
Galaxy Brewing canned its last beer in the summer of 2020 during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic.
