Because the majority of folks that come from that area only have a couple of options, work minimum wage in a shitty factory pumping parts out of a machine until you go postal or working for minimum doing some other meaningless random job.

That's you future.

Canton ohio sucks because for a town its size there is nothing to do.Sometime ago a developer wanted to build an amusement park and motel here and quess what yep they turned it down. It is not like developers are lining up to start projects here that we can pick and chose from.At one time there was a very nice park for the kids here called mother goose land but the hackkneed politicians here decided it was too much of an exspence and closed it down. Later the citizens passed a bond levy to rebuild the park and yep you guessed it council voted to use the money for other things.Makes you wonder why you bother voting right.Then there was meyers lake park a cute little amusement near here that yep closed down too.The owner figured he could make more money selling the land for condominiums.There also was a nice zoo here which yes you guessed it the politicians clossed to save money.You would think that since the professional football hall of fame is here with a little bit of effort we could develope a nice little tourist industry. Maybe even be called the Orlando of Ohio.But if you knew how the politics are around here you would know that can never be.Yeh we are the home of the proffesional football hall of fame and nothing else.

Being an old guy, I can tell you from first hand experience that the zoo in Nimisilla park was a piece of crap. The place stunk and the animals were flea bitten and toothless.

Meyers Lake had deteriorated by the sixties to a hang out for hippy, drug pushing freaks. It was worn out and needed torn down.

Canton does suck. Bigtime. I was born there and live in Stark County. Canton is now what's left of a nice industrial based town. The population has and is shrinking. I drive through it once in awhile and around it most of the time. The north end is still nice but the rest of it is mostly slum. The downtown area is a sick joke.

Yeah, I know the hall of fame is a big deal to some people but it belongs in Columbus.

Even their football Hall of Fame
is an eyesore and a complete joke!
It's a waste of money for any
tourist and a complete insult
for any true football fan!!!
After visiting it, the only
thing a person can say is
... F-ck CANTON, Ohio"
CANTON, Ohio absolutely
and completely SUCKS !!!
Hopefully it will soon
implode and disappear !!!
North Canton, Ohio will soon
follow the fate of the Sh-thole
that's now known as Canton, Ohio.
Also, all of those morons who choose
to live in ("North") Canton, Ohio --
and who are so delusional as to truly
believe that they are safe from the
Curse-of-canton -- need to wake up;
need to realize that everyone else on
the planet sees BOTH towns as being
the exact SAME THING ... and then use
that knowledge as inspiration to flee.

If you don't like Canton then the choice is obvious: LEAVE!
What is it people want if they think Canton sucks? Yes we do have problems with the economy in this area but, that can change. The quitters and crybabies will always whine about Canton but, the TRUE PEOPLE OF CANTON will stand up and brush off the dust and keep charging. Canton doesn't suck just people with sorry attitudes and quitter mentalities around here are the real suckers.

I can tell you why canton sucks...
Because the mayor is a completely corrupt asshole, has his little crowd that he overpays tremendously, cuts police and fireman, and goes out of his way to push business out of town. He was quoted in the repository saying that crime is down this year and no homicides have occured. The truth is crime is down in his eyes because the police no longer can respond or take down a report for a small crime because the crime in canton is unbelievable. Crime is through the roof in canton, businesses on the south end arent even open after dark, and these gangster thugs rob every business up north. The only way to fix canton is to get mayor healy out of office, and with the help of the fbi to stop these crimes maybe canton can revive, but for anyone who is realistic, move out of canton and let the gangs kill each other, because it is going to come down to an innocent clerk getting shot.

The migration out of Canton started in the sixties.

That's why all the burbs,small towns and townships are growing.

When I was a kid Canton was very nice town. By the Seventies it was a joke. I worked in Canton for almost 30 years. Started in 63 and left in 92. I just watched the downtown area rot into oblivion. Jobs are gone. Jobs will not be back. Social undesirables now rule the downtown area.

Its a shame for sure.

I most certainly agree with you about the Mayor Healy.As incredible as it is fifteen percent of the houses in canton are unoccupied as reported by the local paper.I have to believe that in some neighborhoods it is much higher than that.If crime is down in Canton it is most likely because the population is down 20 percent in the last 10 years which means there are less people to rob or mug.Only a nucklehead like Healy would take credit for that.Healy has not attracted one significant business to the city.I can not believe the politicians in Colombus either why would you build a casino in Columbus or Cleveland. Their economies must be a 100 times better off than ours.We need the jobs much more than they do.

I hate to say it, but Canton blows. I want so badly to believe in the city, as a Malone Grad, Canton holds a place near and dear in my heart. However, since graduation I have moved away to Toledo (not entirely bad), and then Columbus (light years better than Canton), and every time I visit Canton, I think, what the hell? This place is so run down and shitty. There are a handful of people there that I have met that seem industrious and successful, but for the most part, it is full of small townies and it will continue to die a slow and painful death. I was looking for a neighborhood to move my family to, but even the "nice" neighborhoods in Canton had parks full of rusty swings and goose shit. I take my kids to a park here in Columbus nearly every day when the weather is nice, and if we move to Canton, I will just pray that they don't get mugged or drugs pushed on them. Everybody should just flee that hellhole or the government should do something drastic to improve it, like at least improve the parks so that families will want to consider living there.

Okay, so I feel bad that I completely ragged on Canton, it's just that we are considering moving there because we have some lovely friends there, and would love to live closer to them. However, that's about it. So, in order to be balanced, I will say that there are a few gems in Canton. First, Lindsey's on Tusc has some delicious (if not a bit greasy) breakfast for around $3. The service there is top-notch with waitresses that work hard and keep the mugs filled with coffee. The homes near Malone 20th-25th Street NW are amazingly beautiful. Unfortunately, according to the crime reports, the crooks know it too and break-ins as well as car thefts are common. Malone is a good school. Traffic isn't bad at all. Milk and Honey and Taggarts make delicious ice cream. Tlaquepaque near Belden is cheap as hell and delicious. The stadium park has decent walking trails if you don't mind constantly dodging goose shit. There are a lot of Family Dollar stores. Okay, so I'm digressing into complaining again. Nevermind, I'll just stop. I just REALLY wished that my friends didn't live there so I could live near them and not have to move to Canton. As much as I believe in "revitalizing" cities and what-not. I'm not a politician, I just want to keep my family safe and my kids on the straight and narrow. Not too sure Canton is the best city in Ohio for that.

We HAD to move to the downtown area a few years ago and it was a mistake but we've never had money to move out. Using the internet? Yes on free WIFI! Anyway the gas station, the drive-thru, and the pizza place all got robbed in a row one night including the gas station. They're all together around 18th. street! Yes they all got robbed in a row. I hear shots fired all the time (not fireworks). I see hookers walking down here all the time. I see wanna-be gangsters walking around talking ghetto and uneducated. It's really horrible, but what are you going to do when even when you work you have no money to move somewhere and pay $600-$1200 a month? I'm used to a $300 rent or so. Who can afford $600 even with a full time job? It's crazy!
