As the years pass many of SF Neighborhoods show deteriorate, WHY?? Homes not being kept-up. People not taking pride in their properties. Abandon homes, etc. Are Our town boards not committed to enforcing codes/laws? The days of the Historical District went too far, to enforce home colors or types of building materials, etc. However, today drive down Millerd St., Mynderse St, Fall St. and Ovid St.for example; for many "nice" homes there is a "bad" home/property. Talking with other home owners, throughout the town, they see the same thing(s). You don't see this in Ken-Mor or College Hieghts, why?

Looking for your input.

Improve your property and your assessment/taxes increase. Out of control local government unable to curb spending. Uncertain about the future, living conditions, and property values of/in a town in the shadow of a massive, stinking dump.

Someone once said " IT'S THE ECONOMY STUPID " the whole state of New York has the same problem. Funny thing is that places without landfills are actually worse.

Government at state, county, town and village level all played a role.

Long before the mountain of trash, sorry that this isn't about that, Seneca Falls failed economically.

Sylvania
Wescott
Seneca Army Depot
Seneca Knitting Mill
Goulds jobs to Cayuga County
Coca Cola
Guaranteed Parts

Thousands of jobs. It is about as simple as it gets.

The number one job killer was the environmental movement. Certain politicians used people's ignorance of science and technology for their own personal gain. The EPA and the DEC were a big reason NEW YORK'S economy went to hell.

The EPA operates at the national level. Yet our national economy has been growing ever since Bush's recession of 2008.

Imagine how different the status of industry would be if the government had helped polluters fund the abatement needed.

fact is people don't like neighbors. People don't have respect for one another anymore. We have become a nation of inconsiderate slobs.

For the most part, the houses that are deteriorating are houses that have been turned into rental properties.

Seneca Falls is a dead zone. It stinks and it's toxic! Literally! Who wants to invest in a stinky unfriendly place? Look at all the empty stores. There isn't enough business to support a business. Not much hope for this stupid place! Goulds will be gone sooner or later. Then what? Better sell while you can!

Make NO mistake... house flippers triggered the US housing market crash, not poor subprime borrowers.

The grim tale of America’s “subprime mortgage crisis” delivers one of those stinging moral slaps that Americans seem to favor in their histories. Poor people were reckless and stupid, banks got greedy. Layer in some Wall Street dark arts, and there you have it: a global financial crisis. Dark arts notwithstanding, that’s not what really happened, though:

No... just separating fact from fiction. You might try it some time.
