My goodness!!! I despise this city!!! First off, there are a lot of hayseed white people, probably on meth, and a bunch of pimp dealers coming in from Pittsburgh with their whores. Lots of domestic violence, cops responding, and of course what makes it worse is where these problems exist, government do-gooders follow along and make things much worse! It doesn't help that the people who grew up here are reminded of their obsolescence, with dilapidated factories and boarded up buildings in the downtown, a reminder that people are not as tough as their grandparents anymore.
Everything is so cramped traffic-wise. There are literally three things to do in this town: amateur ballgames or hockey games, ride the famous inclined plane (snooze), or ethnic festivals..... There's alot of noise in this town, old bridges, dilapidated buildings, and methamphetamine. Pick any time, day or night, and you've got the cops being called to the good-old Solomon homes responding to another drug murder. That wonderful section-8 Tower of Babel has done more bad than anything in the last twenty years!! But if that doesn't strike your fancy, go to the suburbs and you'll more than likely find some row houses with a white trash family getting arrested for child endangerment. There is this one road, on the way out, I think it is the Hornerstown section, where the merge is basically a death trap. Typical Pennsylvania roadways, all chopped up, hard to see traffic.
Johnstown is a great place to live, everyone is friendly.
We have great restaurants.
