They should have left all that land vacant. Now it's occupied by worthless members of society. Does anyone that lives there even have a job?

This will become common place for that neighborhood. JPD should put a office there, then they won't have to commute when the calls come in. Sad, keep bringing them in!

Dear concerned citizens and taxpayers,

Any use of the term "Appleyard Phase 3" or any mention of CODE, Inc. is herewith outlawed in articles of this nature. At this juncture, we now believe people should learn to take care of themselves and be accountable for their own actions.

Regards, Management

**I always put these terms in the comments so they exist in the metadata -- a search of this housing development should not end with an article of its ribbon-cutting ceremony**

This has become a common occurrence since this housing project was built. It's to bad that we GIVE people, low income housing and they have nothing better to do then fight & ruin the nice living area that they have been provided with!!! Maybe they should go up & down 2nd street, all of Jamestown even and pick up all the litter that is thrown. At least this would keep them out of trouble!

Does this really surprise anyone?? Everyone wants to complain that Jamestown is going down hill, and undesirable people are moving in.. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT when you start making housing projects?! Jamestown already had 1 of the lowest costs of living I've ever seen, now you add projects to that & of course nasty people will move into that city. As soon as the ones across the street opened up, they were full of roaches. Jamestown needs to get a clue. PAY HIGHER WAGES (along with making more REAL jobs), PAY A HIGHER COST OF LIVING=LESS SCUM BAGS LIVING OFF TAX PAYERS DOLLARS!

So, this happened when these guys were home on their lunch break from their jobs? Right. Look, message to the brain surgeons that run the city. When you build low income housing, you attrack poor people, which, with no disrespect intended, comes with more CRIME!

I agree with those that say people have to be responsible for themselves and the libs out there have to stop making excuses for those idiots who refuse to take responsibility for themselves and expect us, the taxpayer, to subsidize their criminal lives and activities.

I don't know about the new buildings but the majority, around 95%, of the people in the other buildings( Apple yard I and II) work. The other 5% are disabled people. I think it is unfair to make an assumption about everyone based on the actions of a few idiots. Im sure the working people don't want those types hanging out there. When your job pays a little over minimum wage, you don't receive benefits or assistance and you have kids where do you find a place you can easily afford? At the Apple yards (too bad you just have to deal with with the crap that comes with it).

I spoke with an officer about this housing. 90% on assistance. Sure, as some write, some people get assistance because they are unable to make a living off minimum wages, but if you look at the new apartments, what you find is people that live off the handout system. Its wrong. Some of those people are actually imported from NYC. Its not safe, and NYS seems to want it that way, keeps the cops busy.

Mackenzie I see you truly don't. If you did your trap wouldn't be running a mile a minute. Try getting facts not fiction before you speak. I live in Apple yard terrace 1 and you idiots lump every one because of some. YOU GET A GRIP AND WAKE UP. It's morons that comment when they don't know for sure or think that people are gonna just take what they say As fact. Most of us are hard workers and some of you sit there and say we are all Scum. It's you all who need to wake up and see what's going on. Quit crying and do something about it. Wow I know your gonna say how are you t do something...figure it out I DID.

HOUSTON your right. I love how some say they know but don't. I am sick of people running down all of Apple yard when it's the 3rd one that has given them more issues. Even there some may not deserve it either so why not keep their mouths off and put the blame where it goes on the people that do this ****.

the article says it was 3-5 people, but when I drove by about 15 minutes before this happened, there were 7 able bodied african americans standing outside that apartment building.

I see how OVERBURDENED can assume that everyone in the ENTIRE Apple yard is on some type of assistance but that only applies to the ones most recently built. As I understand those apartments are subsidized. The Apple yard I and II are not. They take section 8 housing vouchers but the rent does not go up or down based on income. Actually in the Apple yard II you will be required to show that you make ENOUGH money to live there or at least $2,200 per month.

HARDWORKINGSINGLEMOM is right people don't get it. When someone says low income housing they automatically assume its welfare. The apple yards I and II were really built to give larger families a nice place to rent since most slumlords in Jamestown were jacking the rents up so high working people were unwilling to pay the price to live in a shack. I only know of 1 family in the Apple yard I and II that is from NYC. The rest are people who lived locally in undesirable housing.GET THE FACTS FIRST! The families who live in Apple yard I and II are hard working families, substitute teachers, nurses, factory workers, housekeepers,construction workers,waitresses,Delivery men, Store managers,Carpenters,and a few disabled elderly. Maybe you should stop by the Apple Yard and knock on some doors. Ask the people there how they feel about the violence in their neighborhood. Ask them if they would move if they could find housing to meet their needs elsewhere in the city.

I am not one of those that doesn't know what they are talking about. I have first hand knowledge about the FACTS that I put in my post. I have a front row seat and now see 3rd and 4th generation welfare recipients.

Hardworkingsinglemom, I don't think you are scum because you live at Appleyard. But, even you would have to admit, that at least 50% of those who live there are on welfare. About 54% of the city of Jamestown is on public assistance. These are not good numbers.

I am not trying to be condescending when I say that you deserve alot of credit and encouragement, as a working mother. It is not easy.

All that being said, poverty and high crime statistics go hand in hand.
