Binghamton Mayor Jared Kraham says the money will help the city explore options for a unique, centrally-located recreation center for children and families.

In a release from Senator Schumer’s office, City County President Phil Strawn is quoted as saying the money will help “augment assets already in place” for the plan.

The Democrat Senators say the funds will allow Binghamton to expand youth programming, boost recreational and after school opportunities with the development of a full-service gathering place for young people and families.
