Where is Greene, New York, USA? 

Greene, Chenango, New York, USA
Greene is a town in Chenango County, New York, United States. The town is named after General Nathanael Greene. It is located in the southwest corner of the county and contains a village, also named Greene. Both town and village are northeast of Binghamton.

Part of modern Greene was from land purchased in 1785 from the Oneida and Tuscarora, but many of the Oneida remained in the area until about 1812. In 1792, the first outside settler arrived and established himself at Greene village.

The town was originally known as Hornby, but changed its name to Greene in honor of General Nathanael Greene, hero of the American Revolution.

The town was formed from the Town of Bainbridge and the Town of Union (Broome County, New York) in 1798. More was added to Greene form Bainbridge (then "Jericho) in 1799. The town was later reduced by the formation of new towns: Coventry (1806) and Smithville (1808). More of Greene was taken to form part of the Town of Barker in 1840, and another part of Greene was added to the Town of Coventry in 1843.

In 1842, the Village of Greene was incorporated, setting itself off from the town.
