the good, the bad and the ugly Posted On: 8/4/2007 12:56:01 PM
i have lived in middletown my whole life and can speak from a lot of experience. the apartments aren't affordable at all, unless you get section 8 and then you are living with a lot of crime. i used to live in the projects and one time when my boyfriend opened up our front door he was propositioned by a drug dealer. we moved to a safer complex where our neighbors headlights were stolen and the condo's across the street recently had a gang shooting. a lot of people from the new york city have moved up here, bringing crime and high prices. i pay $850/mo for a one br aparment + utilities. and the only jobs are in the service sector making minimum wage up to $8/hr.
the only things to do in town are eat, go shopping at the mall, movies or the smelly bowling alley. we have all the popular chain restaurants and nothing upscale. there is a big hispanic population here so it would help to be bilingual. if you have a lot of money this place would be nice, but all you would be spending it on is housing.
there is no public transportation system. there are gangs and the wallkill police are corrupt (wallkill makes up one side of middletown).
