Remember, if you yell an opinion that is held by you and few others loudly enough it becomes a fact!

While Scranton has its problems I still think the good outweighs the bad. As far as out-of-towners commenting on how much they love Scranton, I don't have a problem with that, but if you think so highly of Scranton, why not move into Scranton? Maybe if more people such as yourself...educated, working, law-abiding...moved into town, there would be less houses falling into disrepair and bought up by slumlords renting to section 8s and drug dealers....

Because I like where I am now better. That doesn't make Scranton bad.

It's funny you mention that, because we considered buying a house in Scranton. When we first moved here, we looked at a house for sale across from Nay Aug (don't know the name of the street) but it was near the flower garden/pool area of Nay Aug.
Loved the house, and the neighborhood. Why didn't we make the plunge? The cost of the house, coupled with the fact, that we didn't know if we were going to make NEPA our home for the long term.

In retrospect, I think if we had bought the house, I would have a better appreciation for the area. I absolutely loved the house, and having it right across the street from the park was a nice bonus.
