Gloversville like so many other upstate New York smaller towns have been hit hard by the economic downturn. Historically an industrial town that relied on leather good production for the backbone of their economy but this industry fell by the wayside long befor the present economic difficulties.

Like most areas, there are those places that you would like to live and others that don't meet your standards. A visit to Gloversville would likely reveal a struggling community, deep with history, and pride that goes beyond explanation.

As a former area resident, I would say that MaryEllen's account would be considerably more accurate than Melissa's depiction but everyone is entitled to their opinion....but it doesn't make it true!

Respectfully,

Bill

i am sorry but i do not reccomend moving to Gloversville!! main st is basically a line of run down empty stores. crime is awful, the schools are terrible. taxes are insane. i live about 40 minutes from gloversville and i hate to drive through it. johnstown is much better town. i am sorry i dont want to be rude. i just am telling you the truth. sure there are some beautiful houses in gloversille for sale. and they are listed at great prices. but its only because its a terrible town and people that have been there their lifetime cant stand it anymore and want out.

Hi Emma, I hope you mean Gloversville? Its is a great city not very big but offers many elementary schools that you could walk to from home. the high school & middle school are "up on a hill" so not easy to walk to unless you live near in that neighborhood.
I think our schools offer great programs and our teachers work hard with the students. I hope you can come visit and check out the schools in person with your kids! The city has many different housing styles in the different neighborhoods, We have hills and flat areas of town, there are cottage homes, big victorians, lots of two family's (we were the largest leather industry long ago) and then there's more modern ranch styles in some areas. You can still go to city schools via bus and live in the country too! I love living here and think, Its a great place to live and raise your family! Welcome! MaryEllen, ADK Realty
