I'm not a long-time resident. In fact, I've only rented in Gouverneur for a little over a year, but for those Topix readers who want to know what positivity does exist here, here's what I've found:

I like the small town atmosphere. I'm from Green Bay, which isn't a huge city, but it's bigger than Gouvy. I love that the businesses I do utilize in town, recognize me. I love going to Jumbo's for breakfast and seeing many of the same customers there. I love the "regulars" because many are older veterans who most of us cannot compare lives to. It gives me a chance to imagine what life was for them during the Korean and Vietnam wars.

I love the trails and other outdoor opportunities. The green trees and grass are an amazing upgrade from the steel and concrete. I love taking my dogs for walks in this town because of the friendly fellow walkers and the opportunities for my pups to romp in trees. I love that Gouvy is a central location to Drum, Canton, Ogdensurg, ADK, Lampson Falls, etc. Small town? Yes. But just a few short scenic drives in different directions lead to towns of opportunity and history.

I love the slow pace and that I can walk down Main street without worrying about being mugged. Even the more dangerous streets in Gouvy are safer than most places in the world.

I love that people are willing to bend over backwards to help out friends and even complete strangers sometimes just because it's the right think to do.

It isn't possible for me to write everything I enjoyed about this town, but since I am soon regretfully leaving, I did want to say thank you to those who did make my time living here worthwhile.

So, thanks guys.
