Home Buyer, Paterson, NJ
The data is acurate so far as I can tell. That is a known gang area/territory (bloods) also constant shootouts on 10th ave, 12 ave, godwin ave, hamilton ave. 12th ave and 22nd ave is a known nest in which I personally hosed off for hours brain matter and skull fragments from a recent shooting. The only reason someone would say this is a good area is to sucker some person into moving in here to pay rent or get stuck with a house. Paterson is on the top half of a list of the worst/most dangerous cities in the US along with six other Jersey towns. Paterson is in the top ten cities for murders. Paterson taxes are outrageous and appraise through tax appraisers far more than any bank or lending int=stitution would ever consider. Our last mayors except so far for Jeffery Jones have all been charged and arrested for various crimes. If Paterson is such a good area than why did the state police have to send in 33 undercover officers (still here) to help? Also State Police also run patrols through city now also though they mostly just drive through at speeds unfit for surveillance.In the last months we have had a serial rapist, murders in a bar, outside a carwash, outside a liquor store, several in the north side etc. There is more I cannot even speak on. Paterson is garbage. Oh and the blame....is on the residents who's attitude is.."thats not my business"..or.."they ain't botherin' me"...or ...several (a lot) police who say well if the residents don't care why should I" or "you guys don't want to say anything or make complaints" about places the police themselves frequent.. Knowing all this...why the hell would I want to invest any money in Paterson? Any doubts...start googling because all or most that I have mentioned is public record.
