Wow, I just talked to one of my relatives from the Valley and told me about a knife point robbery in Selinsgrove last night, I heard crime was on the rise there but this stuff was unheard of back when I was in the area. These fine individuals described as the robbers are probably residents of Pine Ghetto. Can't say why the guy that was robbed was too smart either, carrying $700 in cash and they probably knew it so I'm calling this a inside job. Thought Sunbury was getting bad, now it's spreading over the Susquehanna.

The article doesn't say (or doesn't say clearly) if these people all knew each other, or if this was drug related. Don't assume the assailants were from Pine Meadow, as there are bad elements in other areas of the borough too. Pine Meadow will be college housing for SU within the year. I feel badly for the people who have lived there since it opened and now have to find housing somewhere else. I'm sure it will be difficult, although SU will be working to help them as they can. There are some very nice people who are just down in their luck in the complex. Not everyone is criminal.

There have been some other incidents recently of attacks on people walking in the borough. The police are very good at catching those responsible. Hopefully that will be the case here also.

Dawne, I am new to city-data, I don't know if you received my last post. Question......if you were to live/buy a home in Selinsgrove, what area or development would you focus on? Keep in mind I have children between the ages of 9-11. Thanks for all the info you have been providing.

Within the borough itself, I would focus on the areas around the high school and the western side and perhaps the extreme northern end of town in the numbered streets (8th, 9th, 10th Streets). I would stay away from the south end (some light industrial there) and the east end (flooding issues) and the Isle of Que (beautiful but major flooding issues). Once the university students are housed in Pine Meadow (as noted in the above posts) some nice areas should open up in the middle of the borough, where a lot of students are now renting homes.

Just outside the borough is Harris Estates (walking distance to the intermediate and middle schools). You could also look a bit further into Shamokin Dam and Hummels Wharf/Monroe Township. Still Selinsgrove schools but not right in the borough.
