A poster in NC had a great idea and I thought that I would throw it out there for the USA in general.

He/she suggested posting pictures of your house, development, etc. I would like to expand on that to include scenery, main streets or downtown areas or any other interesting pictures that anyone may have.

As they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words" and many times one can tell a great deal about a town or area just by looking at a picture or two. Obviously the scenery or setting is not the only thing or even the main criteria in choosing a place to live, but to many people it is one very important aspect of the process.

So everyone....let's see some shots of where you live!!

Thumbs down Pittston, PA


My hometown of Pittston, Pennsylvania may look breathtaking from an aerial perspective.









However, come back down to the Earth's surface and see just how badly urban sprawl has managed to ravage our downtown. Dropping off from a peak of 21,000 residents, the city is now home to around 7,000 souls, most of whom are impoverished, while the neighboring suburbs are teeming with strip malls and $500,000 McMansions on cul-de-sacs. Unlike Scranton, which has managed to rebound considerably in spite of NEPA's severe urban sprawl pressures, Pittston hasn't had any shred of vibrancy within its depths for the entire twenty years of my existence. I'll be joining the ranks of college-aged individuals fleeing Pittston soon for Scranton, a greener pasture in my opinion.


My suburban alma mater, Pittston Area High School, surrounded by tract housing hell, just a mile from the city line!
