Lightbulb Aliquippa zipcode 15001???

Hello my name is Dee,
I am a working mother of 3 ages 17,12 and 9. First thing is safety because where we currently live in MD my oldest son was assaulted by 14 boys/men. They rob people all the time, the drugs etc. Next is everything is so exspensive ie: 3 bedroom TH $1250.00-1800.00 in a decent area. I can't afford this and my other bills. I am trying to relocate closer to my main office and then for a more affordable place to settle. I would like to know is this area okay? For people that live in this area, close by or know first hand. Any and all suggestions will be considered, Thanks for all your help.

My husband works in alliquippa, and it has some very bad areas. You might consider Industry. That's where we live. It's about 20 miles from Alliquippa. If you want to be near shopping Monaca is closer and offers a nice mall, Target, Walmart etc. Good Luck

Check out the threads on Freedom, Monaca, and Beaver County. We have stated before that you will die in Aliquippa. It's a very dangerous place. However, Hopewell, Center, and parts of Independence Share the Aliquippa zipcode. They are all very nice places.

First thanks for your response. I'm lost here, the home I'm interested in is on a block of nothing but houses. It's considered to be in Beaver County. The price is very afforable and the right size to accomodate my family. How many zipcodes does Aliquippa have or how can I find this information out? I will however look into the areas you mention again thank you.

Ask what school district the house is in. If it's Hopewell or Center school district, you are ok. If it's Aliquippa schools, you need to run as fast as you can. It's not an exaggeration to say how dangerous Aliquippa is. It's very serious. Aliquippa is in a deep valley. Franklin road runs through the center of town to the Ohio river, and a brand new prison. 15001 covers three towns and three different schools. Where is your main office? We can help you relocate from that point.

McKeesport?????? Holy crap girl!!!!! That's way over on the other side of the city. You don't want to be anywhere near Beaver County.
Now, let me say that you also picked the other most dangerous town in the area. McKeesport is just as bad as Aliquippa. Duquesne is right up there with them too.
Now that we know you will be working in McKeesport, you will get lots of input from Hopes and some other Pittsburgh people. First choice is going to be West Mifflin. Dravosburg is close too. I would head to Westmorland County myself. I lived in West mifflin for two years. I still have tons of relatives there. It's been so long though, I'm not going to be of much help to you. Just remember no McKeesport, Duquesne, and probably Clairton. Good luck to you. I'll send Hopes a message to draw her attention to your thread.

There are suburban areas of Alliquippa up on the very tops of the hillsides. They look very nice. But actual Aliquippa and one sides of the hillsides are very undesirable areas. I could care less how cheap the house is. That should be a clue to you that you're getting a place in a bad neighborhood. I know of no other way to stress to you that Aliquippa is not a place you want to live.

If you're working in McKeesport, you really have many more affordable options closer to there. You do not need to live all the way in Aliquippa to find affordable housing. It's way too far away from McKeesport.

If you STILL want more information about Aliquippa, send Pittnurse a PM. She used to live in Beaver. She can give you the low down, but I think she'll agree with South Range and myself.
