I am only stating the ultimate truth; Elmira is just horrible. There's nothing here and it has been a complete and utter craphole since whenever. My mother experienced the notorious Flood of 1972, and according to her and many others, this once prosperous town became ruined and turned into a trash haven. Bunch of black and white trash invaded and caused havoc in the community, the town officials didn't care about anything other than money, and the residents became lazy and careless about everything. There's just nothing worth shit in Elmira anymore, and it makes me up...

True the park is nice. But pretty things don't fix an area. What makes Elmira such is that there are no employers like Ingram Micro, Apple, IBM, Sunafi Pastuer, GM, Penguin, RR Donnelly, Xerox, and the list goes on and on. Half the county (or more) is on welfare and they're more than happy to take the 'free' money. I can't count the number of people dropping their kids off at school on the Southside in their pajamas. Primarily because their too hung over from the previous night or tweaking on the Meth they've been taking. Honestly this place has been a 'corpse' for a while. No is willing to pull the plug on the life support and throw dirt on it. What's more this region is so delusional that it keeps trying to bill itself as a 'great' place to live. When anyone with a brain can see its a waste of time.

In short you need to have work available and people who have some pride in themselves. Something that Elmira and the Southern Tier NY are SORELY lacking. All the people with the smarts and the pride have left for greener pastures. If I had to do it all again I would have left and NEVER some back.

Take if for what its worth.

PackageMan I thought I was the only one with that opinion what a poverty stricken place. And it seems they are content with living and raising a family below the poverty line. They are so proud. No shame what so ever I'm so embarrassed for my friends and family to visit. They talk about people that live in income based housing last time I looked the entire city is one big project/trailer park. Who knew I'm out of this place next summer it's depressing to the 10th power effing hate it... And the so called people with money are still low budget according toy standards. They think COACH bags are high end really!!!!! People. I'm so over this place can't wait to go.

too many on welfare in Elmira.
taxes too high because we people who work have to support the lazy fat asses on welfare who have one kid after another who also go on welfare and the loop continues. We have to support illegitimate babies of teenagers........etc etc etc.

I was born in Elmira in 54'. Joined the Army in 75'. Retired in 95', settled in TN. Came back to Elmira last year for dad's funeral. Elmira seemed sad to me, but I still love it. I loathe taxes in democrat-run states and cities. Tax and spend on wasteful, poverty-sustaining dependency. No thanks. No state income tax in TN. Republican governor and state legislatures, pushing free-market solutions to real problems. Too many liberals flocking here from northeast, Michigan, California, etc., etc. No doubt they will eventually ruin TN, too. Just let your politicians keep taxing you till you are completely destitute, which the liberal politicians love, to keep you tethered to their chain. Elmira, still love it, though. Will only visit, never live there. Sad. One bright note ! I saw the life sized Christmas Nativity display in Wisner Park ! There is a silver lining to the cloud !
