Over all this isn't a bad place to live. We do have a drug problem that is currently on it's way of being fixed. This is a city with a lot of poverty. There isn't much opportunity for job placement but it is growing and more jobs will be here soon. There are 2 prisons here and 1 hospital and 2 nursing facilities, doctors offices and some stores. We do need more growth here. The school district is very good here.

Ogdensburg New York is a beautiful city! The history behind the city is remarkable. Unfortunately, there isn't much to do in Ogdensburg.
Ogdensburg has turned into a very dumpy place to live . Lived there most of my life. As a child it was a great place to grow up. Now it has alot of crime, drugs and poor choices of politicians that are making bad choices for the area. Glad I moved and their population is declining every year. Only thing I see that is a plus is the St. lawrence river and even that is going downhill.
