Billtown-do you really want to live here or visit - 5/9/2008||
Let me start with this little city that everyone calls little philly...why do they call little philly you may be asking yourself on the outside? Simple, a former mayor decided to bring the worst of Philly's population to Williamsport for rehabilitation purposes; however, they didn't rehabilitate and only added to the crime and drug problem and the total destruction of our downtown area.
Williamsport's one claim to fame is it started little league baseball and host the little league series once a year.
We have many places to shop and eat, but no one has any money so they charge it or live in a trailor to buy the fun things life has to offer.
The other positive thing about Williamsport is, if you have the money (are a professional which they are the minority job opportunities), you can live rather nicely here with the average house cost so low, just watch out where you buy your house! People like to have their indoor furniture on the front porch.
I hate to paint an indecent picture of the little city, but we are also surrounded by little town's that a a blip on a radar filled with a special population of rednecks that think Williamsport is the biggest city in the world. It is also the only city that sports the idea that the more rust and smoke that spews from your exhaust, the cooler you are.
Do you want to live here? If you are educated and can actually find a decent job...go for it! If you are moving here to become a skilled tradesman or a factory worker, forget it...unless the average of $7/hr. sounds great to you.
