Moscow is a very safe, tranquil area to call home. It's located in the prestigious North Pocono School District, approximately twenty minutes south of Scranton via I-380. The town of Moscow itself serves as the "hub" for the North Pocono area, with a couple of churches, schools, library, parks, a pharmacy, fire station, post office, and a few shops. Located in the town proper is Harmony Hills, a newer large planned community of upscale residences along Church Street, across from the North Pocono High School. Otherwise, much of the housing stock in the town limits is older, smaller, and, for the most part, well-kept. The North Pocono school campus is also home to the annual Moscow Country Fair, which is a big draw for arts/crafts vendors, good food, and is a great opportunity to mingle with the townspeople and make new friends.

Also included in North Pocono are the following communities:

Clifton Township, which borers Monroe County (Poconos), and is home to Big Bass Lake, a large, popular seasonal dwelling community for NY/NJ residents.

Thornhurst Township, which is home to Thornhurst Country Club Estates, an isolated, private community dominated by Chalet-style seasonal homes.

Covington Township, which is home to Eagle Lake, another popular seasonal dwelling community for NY/NJ residents, as well as the Covington Industrial Park, and the shopping center at the intersection of Routes 502 and 435 in Daleville, with the Shop-Rite grocery store, Hallmark, Ace Hardware, and a few other conveniences.

Roaring Brook Township, which is home to a variety of newer housing developments, including Olwen Heights, Beechwood Hill, and Windsor Hill. Roaring Brook is also home to St. Mary's Villa Nursing Home, Elmhurst Country Club, Fairview Cemetery, and Lake Scranton.

Spring Brook Township, which is largely home to large rural homesteads and equestrian areas. I head to the Aston Mountain area along Route 502 quite frequently for relaxing country drives and hikes.

Madison Township, which is home to the village of Madisonville, and the newer Madison Meadows subdivision, along with a variety of rural living options.

Jefferson Township, which is home to the villages of Mount Cobb and Cortez, and is home to the new Stonefield Estates subdivision, along with the Scranton Municipal Golf Course, Lake Spangenberg, Moosic Lakes, and Jefferson Heights.

Elmhurst, which is a tiny, cozy hamlet along Routes 435 and 590 with little more than a post office, St. Gregory's Academy, and some dwellings.

It is expensive for land in Moscow but it depends on what you are looking for.
