As a new resident to Aliquippa, I was happy to see some growth in businesses. I have heard that the area is in a period of regrowth. I hope to see more advancement. About 15 minutes from many business like walmart , target and panera, but it would be nice to have more opportunities come into the city of Aliquippa and the surrounding townships.
Review Aliquippa
Aliquippa has fallen on hard times in just about every aspect. The community used to be a booming steel city, but as of recent has fallen into a recession and has gained a reputation for being ridden with crime. There is not really much to do in the city, but it is close to two malls, Beaver Valley and Robinson. The public schools are not the best in the area. The population is quite small as is the funding so it does not offer many opportunities to its students. As a result, property is readily available to buyers and at a pretty inexpensive price.
I love the tradition in Aliquippa. It seems like the people of Aliquippa get along together. The city is very small so everybody knows everybody. I have had a very good time living here in Aliquippa. Sometimes I notice the bad side of Aliquippa. Such as poorly behaved kids, violence, and constant drug use.
