Previous owner, now in foreclosure on this property. Lost everything on Sept 8, 2011. Stay away.

Had never flooded in this specific area until that day. No flood insurance. Sigh.

Broome County: You can see flood maps including flood levels for two of the major floods (2009 + 2006) on the Broome County mapping site http://broomegis.co.broome.ny.us/website/gisweb/gisapps.htm#
Select Unified Parcel Information System (UPIS). On the pop up window, select GIS parcel info by clicking on "accept terms". click ok on the viewer
Once the Broome county map loads, zoom to an area of interest by drawing a box around the area of interest - click on one corner & drag to opposite corner (or you can try a search using the search popup). If the updating symbol shows, don't do anything until it goes away.
click on layers to select map layers. Click on floodplain, and select layers such as FEMA floodplains, and Sept 2011 and June 2006. At the top of the layers panel click on update map layers. The main map page should update.

Maplecrest looks high and dry, but you might want to ask neighbors about basement flooding and related problems.

This is very confusing. I was responding to the house on Mountain Road. I apologize about the child molester comments.

Well, not sure what happened. I pulled up info on my house - there was something that asked "Did this house flood? Let people know" so I clicked on it and responded to that question. I was not responding to any of your postings but you replied to mine when I wrote that. Soory for any confusion!

Well I've lived there for 6 years, see families and children out for walks at night so I don't know other than that. As far as police, I've only seen vestal police when the old ladies that live there need an ambulance but I've never seen or been bothered by anyone and have had only the nicest experiences with my neighbors.

You are correct about the database but I live around there so I DO KNOW and I am no fool. The state troopers have been down there so many times that they know exactly what vehicles he has. Yes- he has multiple vehicles. Our hard earned tax dollars pay for those vehicles and pay for him to harass us.

This house did not have any water in 2011 in the basement.... I don't know who this other person is saying that they're the home owner because they are not, I am. The house does have a basement but has never had any water in the basement. As far as a child molester goes, nobody shows up on the database in the neighborhood so before you say something like that and sound like a fool, do some research.

This house DID NOT flood in 2006 AT ALL. In the flood of 2011, only the basement got water.

Besides this house being in a flood zone, there is a crazy child molester that lives next door. He constantly harasses everybody down there. The state troopers have been called on him by everybody surrounding this property. Buyer beware!!!!!

That has all the recent pictures and info. The house never flooded and the hill is across the street and not on the property.

There is a creek two houses down from this house and a hill side behind the house. The water table is very high in this area. I would like to know if this house flooded and see a current picture.
I have very fond memories of this house with my family. I learned two days ago that General Electric now BAE systems in Westover flooded and was relocated. I hope my previous coworkers and friends have not lost their homes and jobs.

Nope, this house is on the other side of the street and set up on a bank. That side of the street doesn't flood.
