Small town in Upstate New York. Basically a dying area. There are fewer and fewer jobs every years, and the drug problem is rising every year. There is not much opportunity here, unless you plan on going to school for nursing and hope to move away when you graduate.

The people are great and everyone around is just like family! My parents grew up there and so did I and I met my future husband there as well. It is a great place to be!
