(NBC New York)   NY judge calls Newburgh "the most pathetic place in the state of New York". Newburghers arise momentarily as if in outrage, then realize they'll be caught in a gang crossfire if they do that   (nbcnewyork.com) divider line 6

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: sociodemographic: skinink:And furthermore, though I've never been to Newburgh, I have been to Rochester as well as Genneseo [sic], Dansville and Corning NY. I bet those places could give Newburgh a challenge as the worst place in NY State.

HA!  As someone who has lived in NYC for five years, is a current resident of Rochester, and has traveled NYS extensively, I beg to disagree.  A friend of mine grew up in Newburgh and moved to Chicago of all places because "it's safer than back home."  Quality of life in Geneseo is relatively high, and the college isn't that bad (it is one of the best performing public universities).  Dansville is quite nice; I have friends who own vacation property there.  Rochester is actually pretty neat and has a lot to offer.  If you're specifically talking about areas like Marketview Heights, Beechwood, Avenue D, Mayor's Heights, etc, I suggest you explore these areas by foot or bicycle like I do.  I've never had a problem, in fact, people are generally pretty nice to me.

I enjoyed the Old Dinosaur BBQ in Rochester. And they have that cool waterfall right near downtown.


Rochester is a pretty cool city - lots of great places to eat, a music scene that is disproportionate to its size,  lots of things to do in general. But yeah - TONS of good places to eat, I mean, you can even have a great meal at the supermarket (Wegman's, of course).

vudukungfu: Driving from Vermont to Pensyltucky, I hop on the thruway and takr my ticket in Albany, drive to newburgh to get on 84, pay my price, exit, to 84, and ther's a farking stop sign.
From 87v to 84 a farking stop sign.

shiathole is a nice way of describing it.
They have a shiatty srtipclub, a shiatty knife store, and some shiatty places to eat.


The 84/87 interchange was rebuilt a couple years ago and is more like an actual exit now. If all you want to do is get from one interstate to the other, no more stop signs or signals.

Il Cena'colo is a DAMN good restaurant in Newburgh.

How come nobody's brough up Utica?
