Recreation Park, Binghamton
The Carousel at Recreation Park in Binghamton. This was built in 1925, when Rod Serling was an infant, and was no doubt a notable landmark (and fun place) for him as a youngster. Admission here has ALWAYS been free, thanks to the generosity of business tycoon George F. Johnson, who headed the Endicott-Johnson Shoe Company.
The Carousel has intricate architectural details.
Families still ride the Carousel!
Riding on the Carousel is quite the experience!
Downtown Binghamton, like so many other business districts, has undergone changes since The Twilight Zone first aired in 1959. Still, much of the area has not changed since Rod Serling was a youngster. This view is of Court Street, looking westbound toward the Chenango River.
Washington Street, looking south from Court Street. The signals were installed in 2005, and are mounted on arched masts that are not unlike those in California.
