Mount Morris, NY

Pros: Some beautiful homes, I have one.

Cons: this village is horrible, I was given a speeding ticket 50 yards from my home residence, I was driving down Chapel St, which is a steep hill to begin with, the officer flagged me down and gave me a ticket without any warning, I had just moved to this village last summer, I guess my School and Property Taxes aren't enough, I brake when coming down that hill, but a warning would have been enough for me to watch the speed building up when coming down Chapel St...

This is a good place to collect Food stamps, 50% of residence love the 1st of the month, glad I can go to work everyday in order to assist the lazy and degenerates in this village...
