Maybe it's a dump (be)cause of IGNORANT people like yourself, not Puerto Ricans and (D)ominicans.

Lived there 1950-70. It was upsetting to many to see a new group of people moving in. Hall Ave went Spanish first. Some government leaders owned slum housing and needed new customers. They would not reform or enforce building codes.
Mayor Vas had a big ego. Once beat me out of a parking spot then jumped in front of me at the bar. Still in jail?
City looks good to me. It hit bottom around 1979.

It was a great town until the Puerto Rican's moved in like locust!
It's the same where ever they live in large numbers.. Crime, Properties go down, nothing but problems, then they blame it on everthing but them selves..

Ignorance is so comical.
I truly feel for you guys.
Puertoricans are here legally and to stay I might add.
As for the other occupants of that town who are dodging immigration I can only say good luck.
That being said, anyone who has a problem with Hispanics as a hole in this town or in any needs to step to this Puertorican and bring a BIG STICK.
I was born in this country, I fight where I'm told and I win where I fight.
I don't condone ignorant behavior so please check yourself but I love to be bullied, the callouses on my hands prove it.

The Hispanics in Perth Amboy look healthier, happier, then those in NYC. I've often heard stories about Dominican and Puerto Rican dislike for one another this forum confirms that. Ok my point, as an African American I can identify I see it amongst west indians, Africans, light skin dark skin. Within all these categories you have doctors, lawyers,teachers, etc and let's not forget my Mexican friends. I look at these beautiful people so handsome and so pretty not knowing whose Dominican vs Puerto Rican.
As an A A I wonder if it could be the brown tone of the skin that they are acknowledging in a negative manner. I have researched to find that there are undertones. I think both are beautiful and it saddens me in 2014 there still remains so much prejudice. And guess what the system works on divide and concur. Peace to you my beautiful people.

All races havve their offsets in culture and degraded generations. I aspire to be like my grandfathers,proud working Dominican who knew a simpler yet more filling life. It's not about race ,its about being human. Empathy. Everybody thinks about themselves,theres nothing wrong with that it's not easy to trust others,but remember this land was never ours...this government was never for us,you may live here and see yourself as "American" but in terms of Duality (that means good and bad)dont forget who you are ,where you came from,who brought you here,why your ancestors even lived for etc..This land is Native American,and yet there hasnt been a single Native American President. The point is though you guys are just bickering birds,Im no better but lets try to change Perth Amboy,It's easy to change the economy of a city it just takes a village,not a person. Im talking about action,not crappy little elections for a Mayor who's only thinking about looking good before what comes. Someone to drive the community together,not to be the catalyst of the people.Everybody makes mistakes,but how many times have you heard of groups making mistakes. Drugs and crime lower the cost of houses,so thank the bad guys for that,inflation is happening because ppl are stupid and dont know nothing of currency. Learn my distant cousins,I dont want to bring my children in a world like this

This is absolutely disgusting. Perth amboy may not be perfect and , yes, I agree that it may need some changes but to generalize an entire town is ignorant to say the least. I am a Puerto Rican female of 25 year old. I went to Rutgers University and graduated with a degree in engineering. Guess what, I am from Perth Amboy. Born and raised. I will never be ashamed to say from where I came from. This town is filled with culture and very proud people. Some of the nicest people I have ever met come from Perth Amboy. I've only encountered truly hateful people in "white" neighborhoods. I was raised to love everyone equally and not judge others by their race. It seems to me that the ignorant ones here are you and the people who raised you. I'm not mad at you. I do, however, feel bad for you. You are one closed minded judgemental individual and that right there is the reason you won't make it too far in life.

Funny, instead of using "its", the proper term would be "it's". Also, instead of "cause" the proper term would be "because". Pretty ironic that you would criticize yet your grammar is atrocious.

The town is home to lazy welfare recipients who bed with one another spreading venereal diseases. Women stay home and have multiple babies in order to stay on the system. Men move in with the whores and they all live happily on welfare. The cycle continues as the innocent children watch their parents.

Puerto ricans, dominicans, blacks and whites that live in the town created the slums. Shoplifting, dealing drugs, carrying diseases, killing each other. It's no surprise people feel their last resort is jumping off the bridge. majority of its inhabitants use section 8 and shop with ebt cards wearing designer clothing and children with jordans. Its a sad for the small number of folks who live decent lives and have to give more than half their paycheck to pay for the rest of the towns residents.

Excuse me but it be the people who have good jobs and make good money who end up gettin welfare and section 8 wen they don't even need it. They use the system instead of these immigrants who really need it.
