Response to 12 Of The Bleakest Places On Earth:
I was born and partially raised in Youngstown. It was a mob-infested shithole then, and 35 years later, it’s a bug infested shithole. I have referred to it as “Youngadishu” for years. NO ONE wants to live there. Old people who are too stubborn to leave remain because it’s “home” but that place, where my parents and grandparents lived and built houses and raised families…that halcyon place? IT’S GONE. Replaced by angry bugs, apathetic cops, rampant crime, with one growth industry…RUST. FU Y-town. I hope I never have to go back. All my relatives who lived there are now deceased so this is a real possibility.
Oh Buzzfeed, that psuedo-hipster corner of the Interwebs…YOU’RE MONTHS LATE.
