add to this:

I do not even go to the walmart near it, if I do not have to. I rather drive longer... I hope that speaks for itself.

You MUST be on GLUE ... Or Blind ... Pcp takes up 40% of Monroe County .. If your not part of the solution you MUST be part of the problem..

The security dept has a HUGE turnover of employee's and some of them have also been CONVICTED of robbing the same houses they were there to protect ... The only good PCP does have is the gates .. It keeps the people who know no better from driving into the GHETTO ..

Harlem is a Nicer place then PCP

River, you've got to understand that anyone that lives in PCP is going to speak well of it. They don't want their property values to go any lower- as if they could! ha ha!!!

I saw a few places listed for 30K in PCP and they were not trashed, I can see where someone might think they got lucky!

I just skimmed thru some listings in PCP. Those price points on some of those properties are very enticing. It is good to educate yourself before you make the plunge into the abyss

The reason I asked this question was because of the prices I viewed in this area. My family owns a place in Brier Crest Woods and I didn't know too much about this area, we usually just hang around the Lake Harmony/Big Boulder area.

It looks like you get much more and nicer house for the money in the Tobyhanna area, I thought there had to be a reason for it. I did see all of the past posts and was curious if the general feeling has improved, looks like the word is still the same...stay away.

Thanks for all of the responses even though this has been brought up before.
