I thoroughly enjoyed the letter from the owners of the Pajama factory. As landlords in the city, we have been saying the same thing for years. You can put gold plated counter tops in your unit and it is hard to attract good tenants, My tenants are good people as are most of my neighbors in DuBoistown. Yes, it is a multi- faceted problem. The city has a perception of crime and violence. Regarding the Scott Street shooting, everyone is blaming the neighborhood. The shooters did not live there and the victim was from Philly and lived on 4th Avenue.
Scott Street has many wonderful people who take pride in their homes. The Scott Street articles are helping to snowball Williamsport downhill.
