Talking My Current List of NEPA Photo Tours; More to Come This Week on the PA Forum!

Here's my current library of photo tours I have snapped of various areas of Northeastern Pennsylvania, mostly of downtown areas. I hope to capture Lewisburg, Stroudsburg, and Nanticoke this week as well. Next week will hopefully permit me the time to do both Montrose and a ground-breaking "urban blight" photo tour to show the uglier sides of Scranton to show that I CAN be "fair-and-balanced" when talking about my otherwise beloved hometown, which is starting to dominate the PA forum lately. Please let me know what y'all think! Enjoy!

Scranton, I really do admire your love for your city. I wish everyone had the same sort of civil pride that you do. If people cared more about their cities they would do the things necessary to make sure their city was truly great.

Your pictures do look really, very beautiful. I only know of Scranton from The Office. But it does look like an Americana sort of town. Go Scranton!

I just finished my latest photo tour of the quaint college town of Lewisburg, PA as well. Check it out if you'd like!

Thank you! (Blushing! ) I truly think every struggling American city has potential to make a comeback if and when its own residents start to take pride in them again. I grew up during the 1990s when all I heard from everyone was "NEPA Stinks", "Armpit of America", "Get out while you still can," yada, yada, yada, and it truly depressed me to see our area, which I never thought was all that bad, being butchered by those who dwelled within it. I personally can't wait until I'm through with graduate school, established in my career, living in the city limits, and working to make the city a better place to live for all!

There's plenty of slums and urban blight in the city as well, and I hope to feature an "Ugly Scranton" photo tour at some point this month or next month.

The streets of Seattle are far more crowded than the streets of Manhattan.

NO theyre not, most of those pics look they were taken in some market places, others during Christmas time. Manhattan is far more crowded, trust me on that.

Of course Manhattan is more crowded. To be official the last three were taken during the 2006 holiday shopping season. Pics 3 and 6 were at the Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle.

Here are a few more.
