Former ‘Dixie Hotel’ in Binghamton town center up for auction

Something new could happen in a 120-year-old building in Binghamton that was once a hotel, but in recent years has become a residence for many registered sex offenders.

The “Dixie 2000” rooming house and two neighboring buildings near the downtown baseball stadium are about to be auctioned off.

The five-story structure at 106 Henry Street was the Crown Hotel before it became Hotel Dixie in 1950.

The building, along with the properties at 104 and 116 Henry Street, will be available at an online auction starting Monday.

According to Broome County records, the properties are owned by Faisal Afify. The starting bid for the auction is $ 450,000.

The online list of buildings suggests that “the best use would be to redevelop for student accommodation.”

The properties are located opposite the Binghamton Post Office. They are located in the city’s proposed “stadium district”, which has been targeted for redevelopment.
