From WBNG.com Channel 12

OWEGO, NY -- The Town of Owego was buzzing with excitement after the CBS Early Show announced it is the "Coolest Small Town In America."

"I thought it was totally awesome. I am so proud that people outside the village come in and take a look and say, yes, it is. ... It's a really cool town," says Lisa Curatolo of Owego.

... Owego [located west of Binghamton in Upstate New York's Southern Tier] received 24,000 votes since BudgetTravel.com began its contest in February.
More than 150 towns were nominated, but only about 20 were chosen as finalists. Owego beat second place Rockland, ME, by a thousand votes.
