There are plenty of *other* threads for civic pride boosting. You can even start your own.
I know! I know! Sorry! I just get irked because it seems like this forum gravitates around Raleigh/Durham, Charlotte, Atlanta, and other "worship me" cities while NOBODY ever gives Scranton credit where credit is due. I suppose it's a good thing though that our population is nosediving faster than President Bush's approval rating---more good seats at the Penguins games!

Well--need i say it? yes, Scranton.
For one reason. There is no town on this thread who has such an ardent advocate. I still have to get up there to see little ol' Scranton but I am waiting till the spring thaw.

I do. It was one of the cleanest cities I have ever been to. The downtown area was active and the neighborhoods were very habitable. To be honest, I can't figure out why anyone would want to live in the burbs out there considering what a nice city they have.

According to most of its own residents it is somewhere between the sixth and seven layers of hell. In actuality we're on the edge of the Pocono Mountains in Northeastern Pennsylvania, about two hours driving distance northwest of either New York City or Philadelphia. We're just about 20 miles too far to be taken as a serious exurban commuting option into the cities, but we are just close enough to enjoy fun day-trips to the cities.
