Really? You have to ask that question or wonder? What the hell? Do you expect the elderly on a fixed income or the slumlords on the east side to improve their properties?

I think parts of Main Street, particularly in the east end section, are very sloppy looking. But as I said the further south you travel on Route 11 the nicer the town gets.

*response to Magritte's post
While I understand the sentiment and perhaps it is the reason your friend doesn't live in the town, there could be many reasons one doesn't live in the same town in which they own a business. I'm not being purposely argumentative, just pointing out that people have varied reasons for the situation you described.

it is 7/2015 .. I live in Plymouth. In my humble opinion it is better than Wilkes Barre thus far. That can very well change quickly. I see a few run down homes but I also see some REALLY nice homes. I've come across trailer homes as well. What do you think of the area now? What do you think of the middle school? I'm looking to move again in a few years. Forty Fort? Dallas? what say you?

I am sad to see what has become of Main St. Plymouth.

My husband's childhood friend, Bob Sapak, worked his way into Plymouth Poultry management when he married Donna. Her dad was looking for someone to take care of the family business. It worked out.
