After reading the topix post about some old facts about Rome (all the nice stores, restaurants, bars, ice cream stands, etc.) it is really sad to see what Rome has become. I have lived here my whole life(50yrs.) and have always had a positive attitude about Rome and thought I would live my entire life here, but Rome is now becoming a scary place. Gone are the days where faces are familar, just go in Walmart (some scary people). Rome has become a big drug city. Every teenager is smoking weed and from what I hear Herion & Meth are huge here. I don't want to put the blame on any one thing but why are we not putting drug dealers away? I live in North Rome and have always felt safe, but not so much any more as crime is happening everywhere. My kids really would love to move too and I can't say I blame them. They certainly don't have the same teenage yrs. I had (walking downtown to all the great stores and in older yrs. going out dancing all night & breakfast). Why haven't the murders been solved yet? I realize these things take time but in the mean time people like myself are really on edge. I know home is where your heart is, but my heart may just move to the Carolinas if things don't improve.

Yes it's not the same at all. But you know it is all over. Although some places are not as depressing. I do disagree that not every teenager is smoking. We have alot of upstanding families and brilliant children in our city still. It is too bad the slums are out numbering the good citizens.

If you think there aren't drugs in the Carolina's then I want what ever you're smoking. It's all over the place. Add the murders in and that's a terrific place to bring up kids. You people don't know how good you have it in little rome ny. You live a sheltered life.

At least there are jobs in the Carolinas and your not taxed to death. Also do you know in all NY state Oneida county pays the highest for gasoline? Oh yeah & last wk. in all of America Utica/Rome was ranked #11 as the most miserable place to live!!!! There is crime & drugs everywhere but Rome simply has nothing to offer anymore!

It sounds like you would be lucky to make $9/hr. anywhere, you can't even spell!(Kife?)Anyway, good luck in Rome...I'm sure the city could use another drug dealer or better yet, produce about 6 kids and you can be a wellie like half the city!
