I grew up on Cherry St. near Prince's bakery. My parents both worked, but found time to keep theRead More front and alley clean. Once a week, mom would be out hosing off the sidewalk. All of the neighbors did this. Today, everyone just sits around all day. Makes me ashamed to say I live in Pottstown. People wonder why homeowners don't want to buy in Pottstown, it's quality of life. When I drive home from work, I can drive the length of Beech, Chestnut, walnut, or King sts. and more often than not, some one is double parked in the streets talking to someone on the porch. Makes you hate to travel through this neighborhood let alone live there.

Michael, I unfortunately own in Pottstown.There are many bad rentals but the people who are ownerRead More occupied are just as bad as the renters.Their yards have junk all over.My neighbor almost sold their home after being in the market for 6 months but the out of town buyer read too many negative comments about the politics and negative homeowners in town.The deal fell through and they haven't had another person interested.These homeowners who live in the bad areas of town expect their streets to be suburban areas like Gilbertsville.King or Beech street will never be a place to purchase a house because it is a war zone after dark.I wouldn't live there if the house was free!

The investors are the smart ones. They make all the money. The owner occupied houses in the ghettoRead More are the dumb ones. They need to put up with all the trash. Suckas

Hi Dene, This is the first time that I saw your info on the Pottstown Patch. I work in a privateRead More physical therapy practice, Cornerstone Physical Therapy in Stowe, PA.. I am wondering if you know that Medicare just enacted a cap for physical therapy of $1800. per year to include speech therapy. This began October 1, 2012. I am wondering how this flew under the radar especially in an election year. We treat a high senior population and several of our patients had to be discharged. Medicare's answer is when they reach the cap they will have t pay out of pocket!!! This is hitting our seniors and our practice hard. Can you spread the word.... Joan Keller, Business Manager Cornerstone Physical Therapy
