My brother moved to New Castle from Baltimore 15 yrs ago. He started his family there and I've made many trips to the sleepy town but the 1st will always be the most memorable, thought I had traveled back in time. Everything looked so rustic, ran down, and deformed and this is coming from someone who grew up in the inner city of Baltimore yet the look of old poverty beat out any ghetto I've ever seen. With that being said this countdown is straight garbage because the people in New Castle are very charming and welcoming. You get a hometown family vibe from everyone, it's one of the few places where there's no division between races. Being a predominantly white town I've never once felt any tension when visiting there it's as if everybody is color blind which is unique and awesome. And there's little to NO crime there, I've only seen a police car twice. Their news consist of who's going to the tackle shop tomorrow. Jobs are scarce there and everybody appears to have some sort of disability or deformity. It's not a bad place however, I honestly think it's a government experimental town.
I'm from New Castle. I know exactly why its #1. The drug epidemic is out of control. New Castle is uniquely situated right near a couple of 'main vein' interstates.
The perfect place to pump drugs up from the south and run them west to Detroit, Chicago, Columbus, Cleveland then to Pittsburgh, Philly, New York, and New Jersey. That's why New Castle and Youngstown were hot beds for the Mafia.
Same reason. And since there is no work there at all, no store fronts, nothing but empty rundown buildings, you're going to have poverty and problems.
i live in new castle and never had a problem.
