What do you dislike about Lancaster?it's ultra-conservative and the people are closed to anything different.there's a tendency for people to want to see this area as 'quaint'..but,there's a drug and prostitution problem in parts of the city,just like in most places.i also dislike the lack of resources for abuse-survivors and alternative artistic people.
