Ambridge Reviews

There are so many things to be said about Ambridge. I really enjoy all the different types of restaurants, and there are many older looking buildings that are just amazing to look at.
My problem with this town is that there are not many jobs available. If you are looking for work outside of fast food, bartending etc. you do not have very many options.
I also wish the towns people cared a little more for the town. If people of the community would come together Ambridge would be a nicer place.
Not a very up to date town. Many run-down looking buildings on the main street, but the high school is large and looks fairly good condition. No sense of town pride. A lot of parades, though.
In my area, the crime rate is not bad at all. Granet there are times where people just argue loudly, that's about it.
