New publication focuses on the people, events and history of Greater Binghamton

BINGHAMTON - A new publication in our area is planning coverage of this year's Air Show.

"My Town, A Great Place To Live" is a monthly magazine that had its first issue last month.

Produced by three siblings who grew up here and then all decided to return after moving away, My Town focuses on the people, events and history of Greater Binghamton.

It has regular features about nightlife, historical trivia, health and beauty tips, personal profiles and a section where seniors tell their stories.

Partner Lisa O'Keefe says My Town showcases the various reasons to love our community.

She says if it's not positive, they're not printing it.

"There is no place greater in the world than here.  When you talk about the Greater Binghamton area, it's a family.  And it's a community of people who help each other grow.  And the area is growing economically," she said.

O'Keefe says she has a background in media and journalism while her brother John Vallone has experience in the hospitality industry and her sister brings expertise in website creation and graphic design.

The free magazine is supported by advertising and is available in a variety of stores, offices, hair salons and restaurants.

It's also online at https://MyTownAGreatPlaceToLive.com.
