I want to hear a lot of different thoughts. What street is the most crime and or scum bag filled in Jamestown? It almost makes me sad to think about how nice a lot of these homes were at one time. Sometimes built for the rich, but then the neighborhood slowly got worse over the years. And with the recent neighborhood dip within the past years. A lot of the town resimbles the slums etc. So lets hear it, what is your pick for worst street in town. I would go with 2nd myself, near the old sammys pitstop and the welfare condo's. Lets hear it!

I would say bush street, or barrows is probably the worst. But seems like a lot of different streets in all areas of town are getting worse and worse.

yeah.... most landlords do the bare minimum to keep them near code, but I can't blame them, with the caliber of tenants, it would be impossible to actually make them nice. Sadly enough I work on Winsor St. area and I get to see all of the nasties in route every day...

Absolutely horrible what this town has become. Even worst when you get the nasty rejects from other cities settling down here. It's not the same place when I grew up. Hell it isn't the same place it was ten years ago. It saddens me to drive down second street, and see all the dirt bags congregating in from of there low income housing. paid for by the hard working people of this community.

I live in one of those 2nd street condos. They are nice inside, some of my neighbors smell though and the exterminater has to com in once a month and bom the place. Its tuff findin a job around here, most these places want u to work for 8 dollars an hour, 40 hrs a week from 9 - 5 or even sekond shift. I just don know if I can work that much. Its easier to live where i am now. All the bills stay payed and there is food on the table. In 2009 they started cash benefits. So i can meet up with friends once a monthh for a few drinks at the cresent. Its good with free cell phone though, calls and texts. works gud

I agree Ben, I have 2 kids and came here from florida after I exhausted my benefits there. The welfare office in Florida actually recommended Jamestown stating the fact that I could live close to the benefits office which meant I wouldn't need a car. I have been here for about 5 months. New York is the only state that does not uphold the federal mandate to cut off welfare after the 5 year mark. New York picks up the full tab once you reach the time limit. I get 660.00 in food stamps and 350 in cash assistance, free medical, a free cell phone, and I got a free dell laptop and all i had to do is sit through a 4 hr class. The medicaid is amazing and costs nothing. I never got a paternity test so social services pays my babies dad 45 dollars a day to watch our kids while I "look" for a job or "go to the library" all i have to do is fill out this little sheet each time we need him to get paid. Plus New York is one of the easiest states to manipulate SSI. My boyfriend is almost 30 and acted like he was depressed and gets 240.00 per month for doing nothing plus he automatically qualifies for food stamps @ 180 per month. He paints and does things under the table so with food stamps, cash assistance, medical, heating bill help, and everything we make about 1800 bucks a month. A little less because we usually sell about 300 dollars worth of food stamps for 150 cash... its just a pain taking someone shopping and usually people want to go and pick out their own food... irritating. I was going to work but like you said minimum wage is not even 8 bucks an hour and that would mean only around 1200 a month... i'd be taking a pay cut!!! I too live on 2nd st in the appleyard terrace project and it is nice. I keep to my self and am living great. Another thing is owning a vehicle will decrease our benefits so we had to get my boyfriends grandmother to register our Tahoe, but its an 07 with low miles and I could have never succeeded this much in Florida. I heart new york!

I recently moved to PA. Come to find out, all of the assistance is less :-(. They want me to work 10 hours a week just for my welfare! I want to move back to Jamestown. I need a larger apartment if you know of anyone that has a five bedroom. They are harder to find. I have four kids. I get over 1900 a month total. But in PA, they are trying to cut it down and setting me up for job interviews! At least I didn't move far. Hope to see you all soon!
