    Dear Ms. Cline. I personally take that very offensive…My family and I live in York City and love it. We live on a wonderful street with great neighbors. We are both mature, educated professionals with excellent paying jobs. Maybe you shouldn't be so judgmental towards people who just prefer to live in a different culture enriched neighborhood than you…Just saying…..

    York City is disgusting! I was born and raised there and now wouldn't dare walk down the street I grew up on! So sad to see a place go from fond memories to what it is today!

    As a former Yorker I am appalled at this news – it is time for the people of York to TAKE BACK THEIR CITY !

    York is trash, that's why I moved to Miami Beach, grew up in the suburbs of York, my family would not let me near the city, its been dangerous for many years!
