" Da Ville " AKA Da Hood historically has and always will be one of curiosity. The neighborhoods are controlled by drug thugs which are glorified by the youth of today. The county and city are so corrupt that little is ever done. The downtown business area is reminiscent of a bombed out ghetto featuring hookers, hommies, and delapitated buildings. Violent crime is rampant and the housing values were low BEFORE the sub prime bubble bust. Steubenville officials include Weirton,WV demographics in thier community assessments to water down thier problems. Various surveys and polling data reflects the Great Depression of Steubenville. The courthouse is riddled with political graff. The city is an eye sore and the people are mean spirited and foul mouthed. Read "12 Against The Underworld" and research this God forsaken dark place on line. Avoid this hellhole like the deseased
toxic dump it is. Any outsiders thinking thier place is terrible need to visit this evil town. Think of the worst of an inner city ghetto and you have " Da Ville ". Until its people WANT to change , it won't. Keep voting straight icket and this is what you get!!

I agree with you both - i have come back after 22 years and both weirton and steubenville are pitiful!

What happened to people who had sense and cared? I know the mill has gone down progressively since the 70's but that doesnt mean you have to hit rock bottom with there attitudes.

I will be moving out just as soon as i spend some time with the family.
