The Greater Binghamton name was adopted in the early 21st century to better identify the region with its most well-known city in efforts of marketing and external promotion.

Historically, the region has been known as the Triple Cities (Binghamton, Johnson City and Endicott, New York). The metropolitan area is considered a part of the Southern Tier of New York State and lies on the southern border with Pennsylvania, approximately 70 miles (110 km) south of Syracuse, New York.
