I actually grew up in Jersey.. NEVER heard of scranton before...all i knew in PA was Philly, Pittsburgh, Allentown, Reading (cousin went to school there) and some other Stroudburg ( we ski) ...

I've also heard of Wilkes Barre before i Moved.. because thats where i send my student loan bill!! damn sallie mae.
