Jamestown has a lot going for it so why is the economy so bad there? It has a relatively good sized population, a beautiful lake, an interstate, proximity to larger cities in the North East and is surrounded by an extremely beautiful countryside. But then you look at the economy you find that their are hardly any jobs or businesses.

Why do you think this is?

It's in Upstate NY....which is dominated by downstate policies that that raise the taxes to mind boggling levels which forces the jobs to go.

It's considered Upstate NY. Anything above roughly the Hudson Valley is. Some in NYC would say anything above the Bronx.

take it up with Albany, we have an incredibly varied state that suffers because of the crybaby backwards antics of all those politicians WASTING space in empire state plaza.

Not a lot more, just better and not half empty. Same goes with Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Utica, Binghamton, etc.
