The 5 Worst Places To Live In New York State
Every year the website Niche.com puts out a list o the best places to live in New York State. But what happens when you go to the very end of the list?
You find the worst places to live! Based on the same metrics that Niche.com uses to find the best places to live, these five places would be the worst places to live in New York State.
5. Glen Aubrey - Glen Aubrey has a population of 319 and is located in Broome County. Around 75% of the residents own their own home and the average household income is around $15,000 less than the national average. Apparently owning your home is nice but a lack of shopping close to that home is not ideal dropping Glen Aubrey to the bottom of the rankings.
4. Depauville - Dapaulville is located in Jefferson County, New York, and has a population of 276. 100% of the residents own their homes and the median income is around $80,000. Depauville got low marks for public education. With so few people there is no dedicated school for the area so kids have to travel for their education.
3. Parc - Parc is located next to the Plattsburg airport and a majority of its 236 residents are renters.87% of the residents are under the age of 30 and the median income level is around $48,000. I assume being right next to an airport would bring down the rankings of your town. I was right.
2. Pierrepont Manor - Een though Pierrepont Manot sounds fancy, it was ranked as the 2nd worst place to live in New York. A name will only get you so far in life. Pierrepont Manor is located in Jefferson County and is home to 213 people. The majority of people who live here rent and the median income for the town is about $12,000 less than the national average.
