Crime & Safety
- Public Schools
- Private Schools
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.
Great town to retire and die in. Town is very peaceful, but there is some poverty. As a consequence, there is some violence. Jobs are very sparse and the town has no culture.
I think this is a great place to grow up and there is not to many people but a great community. It may be heading downward compared to a few decades ago, but still a great place.
