Binghamton Condemns “Zombie” House
The City of Binghamton has condemned an abandoned home because of health and safety violations.
Mayor Richard David said the action was taken against the property at 4 Home Avenue on the South Side.
In a statement, the mayor said the house had been the site of "repeated neighborhood disturbances."
City officials say the house is a "zombie" property, a vacant and abandoned home that has not been maintained during a prolonged foreclosure proceeding.
The property was declared as unfit for habitation because of a lack of electricity, gas and water service.
In March, the city condemned a commercial and residential building at 341 Clinton Street in the First Ward following a series of complaints.
