Donora or Charleroi: of course, of course.

Well, you can't get too much more abandoned than Duquesne. Centralia, PA might work also.

Hey, maybe you'll run in to "NeedsCheapHouses" or whatever his name was. Hopefully he found Oil City to be the mecca he was looking for.

How is Charleroi doing these days? During my days in the valley Charleroi was one of the more lively communities. It didn't seem as run down or depressing as the other mill towns, but that was 20+ years ago.

Brownsville would be my choice in the Mon Valley, simply because it has a great collection of pre-War of 1812 homes.

Ligonier is a gorgeous little town, but it's too expensive.

I love Greensburg, but it seems like there's no work to do there. The town seems to have successfully revitalized itself.

What about Rough and Ready, PA? I grew up not too far from there!

And if he ends up wanting a relationship, he can move to Intercourse, PA, or not do anything at all and end up in Blue Ball, PA.

But then remember, the area is big time bible belt. I don't see too many gays around when I am out and about, or maybe they are still closeted. You may see some in downtown Lancaster, but definitely rare in suburbs.

HTH

(P.S. Yes Yac, these towns do exist in Pennsylvania, near where I live in Lancaster County.)

If he decides to go bisexual, he can move to Middlesex, PA.
