    "I agree with previous comment. Police always on this street, West Race St. Pottsville, PA. Lots of drugs, in area. People walking up & down street, all hours of the night. Houses are very old, and falling down. Alot of vacant houses. Most Landlords are from out of area, do not care about property, just collecting rent. Majority of residents, do not work. Depressed area. Pottsville School is really good, though. Very few stores, restaurants, need a car; very little public transportation. Streets are in very poor condition & not clean. City has lots of litter. Locals moving out (getting pushed out). Lived here most of my life, watched the place, deteriorate."

    "Alot of police activity. Some buildings are run down. Not a great place to live. The schools are ok, not great. Drug activity seems to be high. I would not want to raise my children here. It's okay if your single, or have grown children. Beware of deadbeat landlords."
