Factor in a low IQ, no responsibility, poor economic status, probably SSI, alcohol, drugs, etc and this is this situation in a nutshell. Not being
smart either, I literally go to Middletown all the time and Sullivan/Orange is socially much alike. Many are jobless, drunken or on drugs, long
criminal records, marriages/hookups are short lived, there's a high instance of teenage pregnancies, a very high number have developmental
disabilities (can't expect much if most are "in the family" or 2nd generation "in the family" at that).
Don't ask me, I'm speaking from many, many experiences. Many times I've dealt with the locals and I honestly cannot understand it. 40 year olds
acting like drunken children, scamming the government, constant court appearances for harassment, etc.
It's a beautiful area with plenty of things to do, nature buffs love it. But as people often say when it comes to the locals "Tread lightly and get
it over with as quick as you can".
