That little area was known as "Little Santa Domingo" by the locals for years due to the high number of Dominican immigrants..both legal and illegal" that seemed to concentrate there, and the number of drug dealers.

Lets not BS ourselves ...that area of Port Jeffferson has been heinous for years (no its not Port Jefferson Station)and getting progressively worse.

Theres no shortage of money and politicians in Port Jeff.
Shame on them for letting it get so bad so quickly.

Again the area by the rail is Port Jeff and not Port Jeff Station.

No doubt about it.

At least Port Jeff has great schools to help offset the bodegas and the homeless.

Port Jeff Station is rough and has very little upside.

You want to see some really colorful "locals" head up to Pathmark on a Friday night for the freak parade.

I looked their briefly....very briefly.

I live In PJS, in the neighborhood that is behind Port Jeff Bowl, etc. Our block is very nice, very quiet and we have never had any issues. I really like the elementary school my son attends also and the services he receives are outstanding (autism spectrum). Now that area you are speaking of is so close to us. I really wish they would clean it up! I just noticed the other day the building next to Carvel has broken windows and homeless folks hanging around it. Fortunately they don't hang out my way, but it's still an eyesore!

Aren't there billions of places in Suffolk that look exactly like this? It's just dumpy, not terrifying. To me, that picture looks like it could've been taken anywhere between Port Jeff and Patchogue along Route 112.

Ugly graffiti as opposed to slightly more visually stimulating works does not dictate the difference between white kids and hispanic gang members. I'm speaking in broader terms, not of this area specifically....just saying. Also, I know most people use things like "KREZ" "SEL-SWK" "ESSY516" etc. as tags, proper spelling/grammer is not the intent haha.

Totally O/T but has anyone ever seen the "PUBES" tag? I've seen it everywhere from Albany to Brooklyn and it cracks me up every time.
