10 Places in Pennsylvania You Should NEVER Move To

10 Places in Pennsylvania You Should NEVER Move To

Move to these places and you’re gonna regret it big time!

If you were going to make a list of places to NOT to move to in Pennsylvania, you’d have a lot to choose from. Many people wouldn’t want to live on a farm, or in smallish communities where there isn’t even electricity. Or in an old beat up former coal mining town where the local economy is horrible. Many of us wouldn’t want to live in a big inner city where violence and homelessness rules the day.

You could actually choose many MANY places in Pennsylvania that would be a bad choice for a newcomer. Long time Pennsylvania residents could rattle off at least 20 places they wouldn’t want to live in themselves. And, in case you didn’t know, migration TO the Keystone State stopped being positive a long while ago.

Anyways, because everyone likes lists in tens, we did a lot of homework to bring you a list of only 10 places in Pennsylvania where you should NEVER move, even though there’s way more than that.

We’re going to talk about places in Pittsburgh, near Philadelphia and near Scranton. Places like McKeesport, Chester, Reading and more!

    and these fools voted for John Fetterman….reason 1A to stay away

  2. Russell Bomgardner on March 14, 2023 at 5:24 am

    Common thread with the worst places is the Democratic control and population

  3. Gold stephen on March 14, 2023 at 5:25 am

    I don’t live in Chalfont, but it is definitely the worst place I’ve ever set foot in.

  4. Kashmere Minton on March 14, 2023 at 5:29 am

    I’ve lived in Brownsville my whole life. And it’s VERY beautiful. I personally think it’s a good place to have a family. The school isn’t bad, their is jobs, and no violence. There is the occasinol drugy. But other than that it’s a nice place to live. (also there isn’t much to do here besides walk in the woods or go down by the river.)

    Those of you complaining about how he pronounces Wilkes-Barre……..NE Pennsylvania’s own WNEP news even says "Wilkes-Berry," and they’re based in nearby Scranton. Even WBRE TV news IN WILKES-BARRE pronounces it Wilkes-BERRY.

  6. Basketballer on March 14, 2023 at 5:32 am

    I live in Pitt lol

  7. Stan Sova on March 14, 2023 at 5:32 am

    One reason the Pennsylvania Democrat Mafia wants you to move to Pennsylvania is that lots of people moving out, and they need fresh pockets to the the money from the wallets. Believe it or not we got a rain tax and one place Pennsylvania totally leads in is the highest toll turnpike in the world, not the state, nor country, but in the world.

  8. Phillip Snyder on March 14, 2023 at 5:35 am

    I don’t disagree, but your map is way wrong lol.

  9. MI amora yt c on March 14, 2023 at 5:35 am

    Don’t forget hatboro Horsham, I used to live there

  10. Mr.frag-out on March 14, 2023 at 5:36 am

    You forgot about altoona pa. Shit hole

  11. Dutch07 on March 14, 2023 at 5:39 am

    Just stay out of Pittsburgh and Philly areas and it’s great to live in. Philly and Pittsburgh are S-holes

  12. HITBOXYT on March 14, 2023 at 5:40 am

    I have seen Al of that in pa

  13. Thomas DeRosa on March 14, 2023 at 5:41 am

    I live in Brownsville and love how put of the way and quiet my neighborhood is. I could even afford a yard large enough to have a big garden.

  14. SUPERWIND on March 14, 2023 at 5:41 am

    You forgot Clariton PA.

  15. JP Trostle on March 14, 2023 at 5:42 am

    Well I knew you were full of shit when you couldn’t even place Harrisburg in the correct spot on the map. Sure the city has its
    problems, and Pennsylvania in general is kinda awful — but I spent half my life there and since I know for a fact at least half your data was wrong about this town, I’m going to assume half of everything you’re saying is wrong as well.

  16. Codie Butler on March 14, 2023 at 5:43 am

    610 bred here reading is a shithole but it’s my home

  17. isaac rivera on March 14, 2023 at 5:43 am

    i live in hazleton it’s not that bad

  18. Ed Reguera on March 14, 2023 at 5:45 am

    Can’t believe Mahanoy City is not on this list

  19. Gabriela Morais on March 14, 2023 at 5:46 am

    And about Jamison?

  20. LUKEBRUTEFORCE on March 14, 2023 at 5:47 am

    Dude YES I was hoping it would be Reading at number 1, Im from there and moved to kensington in Philly and it’s a tually an improvement haha. Reading number 1

  21. Celeste on March 14, 2023 at 5:47 am

    You can’t move to Centralia, it’s off-limits now to move to. Why would you want to? I’m from Philly. Like many in Philly we moved to a small town in the mountains to retire. We know all the bad places and did the research. Most of the trouble in eastern and central PA comes from players from Philly, NJ and NYC, mostly to deal drugs.

  22. David George on March 14, 2023 at 5:49 am

    There’s good people in Brownsville except the pizza lady.

  23. Robert Ryzner on March 14, 2023 at 5:50 am

    Wilkes-barre is actually getting much nicer. I live about 10-12 minutes from it. (Also, it’s pronounced like Wilkes-BEAR. Not Wilkes-BERRY.)

  24. Jake Lowe on March 14, 2023 at 5:52 am

    Where’s Shamokin at

  25. random mcsorley on March 14, 2023 at 5:54 am

    Woo Hoo , I live Reading, we’re number 1

  26. Antuzii on March 14, 2023 at 5:55 am

    Don’t come to claysburg.

  29. Hector Camacho on March 14, 2023 at 6:01 am

  30. Let it snow ❄️ on March 14, 2023 at 6:05 am

    lived in downtown pittsburgh in college and a guy was short dead in front of our dorm. no thanks, glad i dropped out and moved home to finish school online.

  31. Noah L on March 14, 2023 at 6:05 am

    You are right about the bad parts of Pittsburgh, just don’t talk about my hometown like that.

  32. Cyan Pitts on March 14, 2023 at 6:06 am

    Tbh, this video was biased as hell. I sat through it looking for information on touring White Haven and instead, listened to you ramble on about ghettos (leaving out Philly, of all places). I agree with the woman who hung up on you, I wish I was her. You could have spoken about the cost of living, activities to do, and how locals treat outsiders but it felt like you took some uneducated top ten list online and turned it into a video.

  33. Isabella Novicki on March 14, 2023 at 6:07 am

    Eh hem. I love in Pittsburgh it’s not fair how bad they made it.

  34. Robert Sigafoos on March 14, 2023 at 6:07 am

    Nick, where did you grow up? You actually pronounced Lancaster like a local. Don’t ask me how I know……

  35. Eron Thomas on March 14, 2023 at 6:08 am

    Never move to a Democrat run city. LOLOL

  36. Usa_Countryball on March 14, 2023 at 6:08 am

    I live in readinng….

  37. Chris Wharton on March 14, 2023 at 6:11 am

    Do this exercise for the whole USA and give us the top 500 crappiest places to live. That’d be a shit load of crap.

  39. mikedebo6023 on March 14, 2023 at 6:12 am

    I lived right by the opening area . That’s east McKeesport blvd . Its a shit hole . Pittsburgh sucks . almost no good blue collar jobs . your either rich or poor

  40. Dave on March 14, 2023 at 6:14 am

    And two years later Pennsylvania has gotten worse. We even elected an US senator that can’t formulate a sentence and the crime rate has gotten higher than the political correctness rate.

  41. Lena Agnello on March 14, 2023 at 6:15 am

    Wow erie isn’t on here?

  42. Believe'n_U Boo on March 14, 2023 at 6:17 am
