Our Village

Welcome to the Village of Johnson City! Johnson City is a friendly village, rich with history and character, surrounded by natural beauty. With a population of 15,000, we are conveniently located in the heart of Broome County, in the Southern Tier of New York State. Our village offers many attractions and conveniences along with an excellent school system and a variety of higher education opportunities nearby.

The historic arch that frames the east entrance to Johnson City declares our longstanding theme “Home of the Square Deal”.

Johnson City is now home to Binghamton University’s new School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Opening in the year 2021 adjacent to the School of Pharmacy will be Binghamton University’s new Decker School of Nursing. With these new schools and other developments in our community we are growing and will have a very bright future.
Together with the board of trustees, I am here to serve our residents, businesses, and visitors. Please feel free to call or email me with your questions and/or concerns. My door is always open.

Thank you for visiting our official website. This site is designed to introduce you to the Village of Johnson City and to provide you with useful information about our community, our heritage, and our staff.

Home of the “Crown Jewel” Collection

The Village is the proud home to the “Crown Jewel” of Broome County’s unique collection of six wooden carousels donated by the George F. Johnson family in the 1920′s. One of the largest remaining carousels in the country, it contains 4 rows of 72 horses. In 1993 the horses, scenic panels & rounding boards were completely restored returning them to their original beauty. In 2010 the eighteen sided, two story pavilion and cupola housing the carousel was restored. Located in CJF Park, the carousel has been run free of charge since its installation. This is another powerful legacy of the Johnson family.
