Intractable abject poverty in a toxic polluted area with terrible weather

Students who come for college may like the town because it is cheap and they can hang with their high school buddies. But this is a horrible city. When the defense industry pulled funding in the 1990s, the city went into free fall. Housing values have been on the decline since that point. It is not a bubble it is a bottomless pit. The local talent, Tanenhaus-housing with the Salvation Army, got to work and invited the very worst element possible to the area from NYCity, Section 8 vouchers in hand. They are the ones to thank for the immense gang element that has made the area not just an economic cesspool but dangerous. College students regularly have their heads bashed in. Read the articles in the newspaper. The fact that IBM polluted the area, something that caused a childhood cancer cluster, does not help. Another problem is the fact that the city is isolated. There is no easy way in or out of the city. Every 4 years politicians come to the city, comment on how it looks like Appalachian poverty, and promise to work on getting high speed rails. But there are no rails at all. There is no reliable way to get the heck out of the place. Really, it should be condemned. If you move there, be sure not to move into a place that is in the plume which is the cancer corridor. Don't be fooled into thinking that the venting makes any difference at all. And, don't expect the sun to shine more than a few times a year. It is a gloomy, ugly, dank place.
