Oh , yea , the narrow roads , decaying bridges and Railways , and lets not forget the overall neglect by Harrisburg of the Urban areas. The Rural areas are ok for the most part , but why is there a Walmart in almost everytown?

That's why we sometimes call it "Pennsyltucky" !!!

Unlike MA, RI, CT, NY, NJ, DE, or MD ... PA never touches the Atlantic Ocean, so from the stand point of geography, PA is NOT an East Coast State.You might be right, we just might be the easternmost "Mid West" state!

The downside of that is...you are living in Missouri.

Yeah, it really ain't a joke; it really matters/makes a difference. That's why the prices/taxes are so much higher. Way more livable, way more fun stuff like restaurants and parks.

Ain't no one wants to live in Bumblescum, Missouri
