Derry Area is on the brink of a new boom! Decisions are being made, and sites prepared, to bring in more industry and jobs. The small town feel is so comforting. If what you need isnt here, it is only away. It's nice and quiet here, you would not realize it was only 15 minutes to a major shopping outlet, airport, hospital, art and culture, etc. The school district was voted one to watch for their strides in education. The school athletics are top notch.

Derry is a place of it's own. It's not bad, yet it's not great. There are some nice neighbors, but some are really nebby. I just don't like the vibe. It's a really sad place. A lot of negative energy floating around. But there's worse places to live!
I just arrived in Derry not too long ago, about two months to be exact. Overall, my experience has been average to lackluster. The town is very small, non-diverse, with very little to do. The people are generally kind and friendly though, which is a good thing. Most jobs are located in Latrobe.
