Regarding crimes and drugs ?

Pottsville has half population and less job opportunities.

I'm going Hazleton on that one. More crime, blight and detritus yada yada but at least you've got jobs and places to shop. Pottsville literally feels like a ghost town it's an eerie place. I would rather be a bit nervous about Hazleton than depressed about the melancholy feel of Pottsville, it would bum me right out.

I'll take "what do criminal do" for $500, Alex. Unless, like many from the region, you are engaging in race baiting? Then I'm not playing.

Pottsville seems to be a nice little town. I'm sure there is property crime and opioid abuse like everywhere, but from our trips to Pottsville it seems like it's got a lot going for it.

I love Pottsville. Most of parts are nice. Life is worry free. Many New Yorkers moved or are moving there. Cost is low.

Yeah but where are they going to work? I am sure the few that are working at the Yuengling brewery are holding onto those jobs for dear life!
