you know - if everyone was really really friendly, courteous and pleasant when walking, talking and driving - IT WOULD CATCH ON! believe it or not. and massena would eventually be recognized as a very friendly place to be AND - there comes more people - jobs - industry - entertainment. of course - if you like negativity , then you can disagree and just sit at your computer and bitch.
i, however, like massena - who started this thread - believe we CAN make massena BETTER

I agree with you "just be nice". The comments on here show the exact opposite of what you stated. Why can't people be encouraging and positive? I would love to live in a place where I didn't feel judged or afraif every day when I walked down the street. Instead feel welcomed and get a friendly hello. Random acts if kindness go a long way

Massena is horrible! The police r corrupt, as well as the town officials. You won't get rid of the drugs because of this. Wake up Massena...you r too late to fix it now.

its not just massena, a lot of post industry towns in America are like this, ghost towns (towns abandoned almost completly) went through stages like this. the town boomed when conditions favored rappid growth, the heyday supported big projects in roads, housing expansion, utilities, etc to support the rappid growth that supported workers for one or two major employers. post world war two saw a lot of booming industry (50s and 60s) when we sold stuff to everyone rebuilding and everything started to slow down after that. these days we don't do the manufacturing. the houses and booming infrastructure of those years are now old and worn down. the old middle class workers are also old and retireing and the factories moved orthe industry collapsed (whale oil ports, beaver felt hats) and the youth don't have anything to do.

brasher ironworks supported an iron works, a lot of st lawrence ghost towns were once big centers of activity when they hosted a paper mill or other industry, now those factories are largely stone foundations and the old houses gone as well with scattered houses or a cluster where a few people still live, everyone else left to work in places like massena when the jobs were good.

other towns shrank or rebranded what was the culture of the town, some became historic and artist centers (burlingtons old factories are now art studios), tourism (placids lumber industry may be less than it was but the tourists don't care). others (most) become run down slums full of drugs, violence, and hookers, or collapse and become ghost towns (not likely, with the population as big as it is today there isn'tt anyplace that can take all the relocation). some towns shirnk into decrepit slums for decades then a new industry comes in and the place booms again (london was big under rome, afterwards was a shitty little squat with the old buildings falling apart then it rose again several times.

massena needs to either die or enter a new state of rappid unsustainable expansion untill the next time it goes under

Really? I work dumbass and own property, BUT not in Massena! I sold my house and got out when the renters started moving in the place in droves. Take my advice...sell your house and move while you can still hope to come out even. Good luck.

obviously we cannot continue this conversation with you because you have a limited vocabulary. read the etiquette of good manners, utilize them, and then we might continue. it is entirely possible that when you are able to articulately espress yourself, you may have ideas worth pondering.
