Spot on. I'm from Johnstown, and have family in Gloversville. Every person that I know that has moved away from these two towns regard it as one of the best decisions they ever made. All of upstate NY is beautiful, but that alone isn't enough to live on. People of Johnstown used to joke about the crime in Gloversville, and that was nearly 20 yrs ago. It obviously hasn't improved.

I grew up 15 minutes from Johnstown, and crime is non existent, the school system is wonderful, and it is a beautiful area of upstate New York. The median income is low, but the cost of living is way below the national average. Jobs are hard to come by in an area that heavily relied on factories and leather mills for their income, but to put Johnstown in the same category as some of these other towns is a joke.
