    There are good and bad things where I live. There's ton of nice places to go and visit, but the cost of living is just to high.

    They're okay, but I much prefer businesses in Utica (the closest major city)

    • Things To Do
    There are jobs here, but I always hear complaining about something. I don't really see HELP WANTED signs, either, so I kow there are jobs, but I'm not sure where most of the time.
