Top 5 Worst Places to Live in New York State

New York State is one such state that has a reputation that is not guaranteed by other parts of the country. It’s so misinterpreted.

When people think of New York, what do they imagine? They imagine New York first and foremost. It’s natural, it’s the same name as the state and it’s the largest city in the country, but I’ve officially lost count of how many people assume that when I say I’m from New York State, I live in a big city.

Most of New York State consists of farmland, countryside, and small towns. Take a drive through western, central and upstate New York and you’ll see just how wrong this stereotype really is.

However, while I like many aspects of this state, there are downsides. There are places that, let’s face it, have very little to do there for recreational activities. There are also places where crime rates are less than ideal and consistently lead in crime rates.

What are the least ideal places to live in New York State? New York City is very big and has a high crime rate due to its layout and size, but there are, however, countless things to enjoy in New York.

Here are the five places you might not want to live in New York State.
