Hazleton, PA aka armpit of the world - 2/12/2015
As a longtime resident of the Hazleton Area, I can tell you it is one of the worst places to live in this country and I am sorry that I didn't run the second I graduated from high school. The whole area is rundown. The job market is lousy. Most jobs in this area are for high school/college kids or people who barely completed high school, lots of low paying jobs in factories, there are few white collar jobs or good companies to work for.

cheap housing - 4/8/2010
cheap housing and rent, just about any house hold that makes 30 000 or more can afford a house here as they go for 60 to 80 thousand, most homes are old and have mold in the basements. there are some nicer homes that go for 90-130 and the resort properties 4-8 miles from downtown that go for 160-250 Read More
