Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Broome County, New York rail corridor
Old factories, new ideas
Engineers hired to study blighted 1.5-mile corridor

A path to Broome County's economic future runs along a rail corridor 
littered with relics of its industrial past.

That is the thinking of Broome County officials, who this week will 
present the beginning stages of a revitalization plan for the "Endicott 
Johnson Industrial Spine," a mile-and-a-half stretch of manufacturing 
ruins sprawling from Baldwin Street in Johnson City to Glenwood Avenue 
in Binghamton.

Using a $155,000 state grant, county planners have hired engineers from 
Clough Harbour & Associates to study the area, a mix of commercial and 
residential neighborhoods around a core of obsolete and dilapidated 
factory buildings, and prepare a preliminary plan for its renewal.
