It's nice for single younger people as it has a college town vibe. There are two prisons in the area and one hospital, so the demographic is basically prisoners and their families, health care workers, correction officers, and college students. The nightlife is limited, but the bars and restaurants have a small town feel, where "everyone knows your name." Overall, Elmira is not a bad place to live, it has a strong historical background.

Crime is increasing. Removing God and prayer from schools and removing the Ten Commandments from public buildings is a cause of increasing crime and disrespect for teachers and people in authority.
Crime and disrespect for people and property will increase every year when consequences are not severe enough and when we remove God from our schools and society.
