I have lived in Lancaster City for the past 40 years and find it quite peaceful, Crime is not bad at all. the block I live on is occupied by all home owners. I have taken 2am walks in what many of you uninformed people consider bad neighborhoods and was never bothered by anyone - compared to many places that my friends live including rural areas, Lancaster City is by far a safer environment. So I don't know where you got your facts but they are blatantly wrong. Lancaster is a diversified and loving place to live.

He lives around Buchannan Park and F&M college. Nobody considers those bad areas. Lancaster is NOT safer than the rural areas around it. Do you read the local news.

lancaster pa is probably the safest city i have ever been to. I've seen small towns with only a couple thousand people have more issues with violence than lancaster(coatesville, darby, mckeeseport) People in lancaster just are not very dangerous at all. That is why i don't understand all the cameras in the city. Lancaster had like 10 homicides in 5 years and they are almost all domestic violence. Sorry Lancaster Facts but your statements are fiction

No city is going to be safer than the rural area's around it. But as far as city living goes Lancaster is a completely safe, wonderful, and beautiful city. By the way I live in the North Eastern part of the city and I walked the whole way from downtown back to home last night around 1130 pm this is about a 1 1/2 mile walk, was not bothered by one person, in fact most people I passed even said hello. You don't have the facts...I gave you the facts on the last page.

You're biggest problem is you are reading way to much into local news. Pick up a paper anywhere in the world and you are going to find bad stories.

I agree that Lancaster city is relatively safe but there still is a big difference between walking around the general hospital at 11:30 at night and say the Roberto Clemente corridor in the SE section of the city. My friend was walking down strawberry street and somebody came out of an alley and hit him in the face with a shotgun and went through his pockets as he layed there. The NE section of the city is probably the most beautiful section with all the work Lancaster General hospital done in that area. As safe as Lancaster is there are still sections you should not walk around at night. I lived in the SW section for years until 2009 and really never got any hellos as I walked places. Lancaster still has a higher robbery rate than MOST cities in PA and could still use more work. My mother recently moved off the 400 block of Lafayette street because she was robbed at knife point while walking to her car for work.

Lancaster city is not much different then the surrounding communities, look at the police logs, especially Manhein and Ephrata, Columbia. Crime knows no boundries, Theres just as many irresponsible parents in the suburbs as in Lancaster. As for pit bulls, theres alot of great pit bull pets all over, I have one, perfect family dog. Consider that of the dozens of dogs taken from M. Vick all but two were placed in homes and have had no problems at all. Blame the owners who mistreat their dogs, not the dog.

Drugs are every where and everybody knows that. Oh and weed is grown in the suburbs. Why is it that many folks (white people) are quick to talk shit and bash the city because of some weed sales? Correct me if I am wrong, but the majority of pedifiles are white. It angers me to turn on the tv and see another white man arrested for having sex with little kids. So need I even say that the real issue is all you white pedifiles fucking little kids? It's amazing you are more concerned about weed sales rather than worrying about the kids that live in your own town. Damn hypocrites!

Lancastr is full od racist white people and ignorant negroes + Puerto rican wanna be thugs.The fa99s wanna act like their pathetic little Amish town is The Bronx or something.You all are jokes. The only good thing about lancaster is the locally produced reasonably priced food and the absence of traffic. Other than that it is a boring ,depressing little town with no character and full of smug hipster white fu3ks and racist rednecks ,
Sounds like you are the one with racist views. Stop being a HYPOCRITE fool!

I just got back from Lancaster where my girl friend was raised on high st... it is a bad area but its no reason to act as if they are trash. Learn respect and be smart and your fine. I'm a white boy from small Colorado who walk the streets with my girl and her Puerto Rican family dressed in blue dickies buttoned up I said hello, excuse me and used manors not head down and acting better than. At night I sat out front with her and her cousin and had no issues. Why not try treating them equal put money and hope back in and stop the bullshit by truly helping not running out those doing what they do to survive by throwing them in prison and treating them like most on heard speak they are TRASH while you say nothing about your rich ass neighbor who is an alcoholic wife beater who most likely are the coke head buying the product.... RESPECT be smart and help not destroy. Live it and when you still alive in 2 years or even 6 months your eyes will open

All you people whininga about drugs and crime save your breath.
See if drugs were legal people wouldn't be committing crimes such as shooting, robbing, ect.
They could go to a "DRUG CLINIC" in I should hope a monitered setting and get wacked out of there brain while the rest of the people who choose not to endulge go about a normal and safe life.
The war on drugs that's obviously lost is creating this crime. It causes murdered victims and ruin lives really what good comes out of a drug bust except that the cops, courts and dealers make money and get there recognition?
Law-enforcement, half the courts, prison and probation would not be overwhelmed if drugs were legal and would be out of buisness fast
Methadone for those that don't know what it is it is legal heroin.
If babies are born addicted to either methadone or heroin they are weaned off in a few months. If your an adult you can get it for-ever they don'y even try to wean adults.
And so should be the same with the rest of the drugs crack clinic and so on.
After all the elementary population in lanc. county that take legal drugs like perscription drugs is alarming.
So the county that forces there school children to take med when no one wants to deal with them than officials want to turn around and bust balls about crime related to drugs.
It's all about money. Make drugs legal prisons are fuller, half the probation and courts personell lose there jobs and fine money, and citizens would remain safer as there would be no competition or crime to obtain them. Just a visit to a clinic.
But it may only remain a thought imagine the loss of money lost and lives saved. I guess that would put to much of a loss to the big-wigs that profit from tearing lives apart
Just because someone uses drugs doesn't mean they are bad or dangerous.
People like that need help to get there lives back not corrupt courts and prison that tear it apart in the name of the all mighty dollar.

Hello Doctor.

If Lancaster needs cleaning up from these gangbanging drug smoking terrorists, just go to Paradise and speak to Jolin.
Tell him levi sent you.
From there we can work out somthing to take back the once beautiful city of Lancaster.
I already got rid of that fake amish darky druggie,, and im aiming to get rid of the rest of them.

Dont worry, ill have this God forbiddin situation under control.
We must all work together to solve this problem both the English and us Amish.
We shall prevail in the name of God.

Beware all gangbanging city folk, get out of Lancaster.
