Hi I am moving back to Williamsport in July for a new job. I moved out of the area right before mayor Bloom started the influx program. I need to know what areas to stay away from, I do have a great desire to live in another Victorian home.

Any areas that look like Africa are a best bet to stay out of.

I know I'm a little late on this post, but maybe it will help someone else who searches for this topic. Williamsport is a "weird" small city that really changes from street to street. The areas that I would highly avoid are of course the Timberland apartments area and the 4th, Cemetary, Scott, and Memorial area (which I believe is more dangerous than the Timberland apartments area).

Williamsport has a huge drug problem. When there are drugs, there is violence. Williamsport is no exception. At one point earlier this year, Williamsport had more murders per 100,000 people than Philly! It's safe to say that almost anywhere you live in Williamsport, there is trouble close to you.

My post may seem a bit scary for those who are looking to move into the city, but in reality, if you keep your nose clean and mind your own business, you have nothing to worry about. Williamsport is changing for the better in many ways. Nightlife is one of them!
