Default This is soo funny

s i don't know why people think New Rochelle is a bad area, its really not, most people think that because most people are unintentionally racist, people are afraid to go into the west end because its filled with Mexicans, and people are also afraid of parts of New Rochelle because of blacks and other miniorityites. to tell the truth i'm glad i was raised in new rochelle, its one of the few places in the world that is diverse. and it helped me make friends when i went to college. i know a great number of people from my school and other colleges who had trouble makin friends or getting used to seeing people from a differnt backround. and as far as most other "white" town in westchester such as tuckaho, bronxvillie, and eastchester and so on. they tend to have kids who have drug problems. i used to hang out with kids from all over westchester from where i met them at house parties with private school friends, or from going to local bands shows. and i've never seen kids that do hardcore drugs like them. people think new rochelle has a problem and it doesn't. and i was born and riased in downtown New Rochelle right by trinity and davenport.

In all honesty I think that perhaps New Rochelle is not ready for prime time. For the same ammount of rent you can live in White Plains, which to my knowledge, does not have any serious crime or gang problems as does New Rochelle.
Pretty funny the misconception. Did you know that it is actually the 5th Safest City of its size in the Nation? Yes, New Rochelle as a whole is safer than White Plains!

This is public information....go online and do a little research!

What earthly reason would there be for any of these businesses to set up in NR? They open where there's a market - such as next door in Larchmont.

Exactly. I can tell you for a fact that NR is viewed by businesses and contractors as one of the worst places to get anything done in Westchester. I refer to permitting, building, zoning, etc etc. Maybe the worst, and worse than NYC. City hall is a web of entrenched bureaucracies, all playing within their narrow zone of control and having no interest in actually getting anything done. The mayor either isn't serious or is toothless. Until he goes after the culture of his own office NR has no hope of changing.
