Small Town in New York. Historically a Steam train town. Mostly ignorant people and people who have less than a desirable IQ. but some of them are actually smart.. Port Java, Brother Bruno's, Len and Joe's and Hess' are the redeeming qualities of this town. The point where New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania come together.
Non-Port jervian: Port Jervis where is that?

port jervis...
small town by the river in new york; the tri-state area!
has negatives like some dirtbags, sluts, bitches, and assholes! & some people are so ignorant! maaaad people do drugs in port! we do seem to be cursed with death, we've had about 10 teenage deaths in port....sad. also, the high school sucks!

it does have its positives, though! rafting down the river in the summer, port java, the hawks nest, point peter, hess', being by the river, smart students, nice scenery! pretty much everyone knows is kind of just a small town! people in port like to just party, chill, hang out and have a good time!
jake: yoo what's good?

jake: word? can i come?!
tommy: k, i'll pick you up! where are you?

Typical example of a small post-industrial wasteland town in upstate NY. As usual in the Hudson Valley region, their claim to fame is the long-forgotten era in which steam trains serviced the area. The symbol of the town is a romanticized depiction of a steam train running beside the town and most of their commemorative signs reference railroad tracks, railway bridges and old mule canals that were (yes, you guessed it) converted to railroad tracks.

The population is shielded from surrounding areas despite being a crossroads between three states. Most people have never been to NYC and there are some that barely visit neighboring towns.

Stores are essentially nonexistent, and the grimaces you receive when visiting the few remaining ones leave no mystery as to why this is. If you're not some longtime resident of 30 years, generally the response is one of suspicion and fear. Barring a Rite Aid and deficient Sav-A-Lot, the town is barren. There are a couple of quaint places to get ice cream if that outdated 1950s family atmosphere is desired.

The judicial system is corrupt, with two judges who also function as private attorneys complete with websites soliciting business and all. So unless you pay one to represent you in front of the other, there is automatic bias. The police are typical of a bad neighborhood, always constantly suspecting everyone under 60 years old of wrongdoing.
Car driver: "Let's stop off and get some gas and food at this exit, says 'Port Jervis'"

Passenger: "Google says all the gas, food and shopping for this exit is in Montague, NJ and showing really nothing toward this Port Jervis place."

i apologize for the dumb ass who define port jervis 1st.

it is actually in new york. the ice cream shop is called the creamery (really hot ppl work there) and shop rite is in montague, NJ (see montague) there arent that many hillbillies. trucks cant navigate through the small streets and it was nominated the coolest small town to live in.

every year someone finds a way to die... usually a teenager.

the only good thing this town has going for it is the fact that its way cooler than a new jersey town and that its wrestling team is really good. (or was at one point)
friend: did anyone die yet this year in port jervis?
me: umm idk... wait yea. some dude who graduated 2 years ago died.
friend: where?
me: i think by the hawks nest
friend: ohh yea!!! he crashed right?
