I'd rather not dwell on this entry, but it's hard to avoid that Dryden's had a pretty rough time with crime over the last fifteen years, and every now and then I hear it described as the "Village of the Damned" when I tell people from elsewhere in the county where I live. That name seems to come from here. The Ithaca Journal discussed it after a more recent crime, and there's a reply from Dryden residents as well.
I'm pretty happy here. At least I don't live in the "City of Evil", though I don't believe that one either.Posted by simon at November 14, 2003 1:41 PM in history
