    Anthony Reviews

    I have lived in Anthony, New Mexico my entire life. Leaving was never much of a choice, I live here with my parents and two dogs. Anthony is a quaint town, split between two states, New Mexico and Texas. The town has recently been voted to become a city in the state of Texas. Over the years there has been much improvement over the Texas state line, as for Anthony, New Mexico it has remained the same. I hope, in the years to come Anthony New Mexico will soon see improvement as well. Improvements such as street lights, side walks, better roads, and presentable front yards. I enjoy living here because I haven't had a choice until recent, but my hopes are high for our little town.
    Review Anthony
    Crime in the area has never been good, because the town is so small and not kept, it allows a window of opportunity for a higher rate in crime. There are a lot of gangs in this area, if you don't see them in the schools, you see their "work" in our neighborhoods. Graffiti and vandalism are both common things in our town, any action other than painting over their tagging's and replacing what we can is usually not taken. I hope at some point the community will come together and do something about these issues.
    The town of Anthony has a very small community, there are those who gather often and discuss issues and solutions but there is rarely any progress or improvement.
