A neighbor of mine is considering relocating to Mountaintop. Any comments or suggestions? I imagine employment is probably in Scranton/WB area.

Well, you're actually the SECOND person today I'm going to help out with Mountain Top, which is probably a mixed blessing (People realize it's a great place to live, but now TOO MANY are finding that out...LOL!) Mountain Top is more of a "rural" suburb about fifteen minutes from Wilkes-Barre, (pop. 43,000), fifteen minutes from Hazleton, (pop. 28,000), and thirty minutes from Scranton, (pop. 74,000). There's plenty to do around here in the form of minor-league baseball, hockey, and football, great skiing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, and other forms of outdoor recreation. Our area has three major malls right now, with a fourth (A NYC-style one) on the way near Scranton. We have several theaters, a Philharmonic, a few cultural centers, museums, libraries, a tiny zoo in Scranton, and a new medical school is coming to Scranton and a new law school is coming to Wilkes-Barre. It's a great place to live---Everything is perfect except for a rather bleak employment outlook. There are plenty of opportunities in the realm of financial services (banking, accounting, etc.), health care, and blue-collar work, but there aren't many positions available in education or IT/tech.
