Hazleton, PAhazleton lacks cultural and recreational activitie
here you can go shopping or you can go to the lakes, not a lot other things to do. locals like to go hunting dear, ride motorcycles. a good thing is that you can drive for weekend trips to pittsburgh, new york, washington, niagara falls (this one is far). Some of us are working on bringing more culture to the city and take advantage of the recent influx of immigrants to make it more interesting... it may work...
Hazleton, PAgrowing pains
they say it used to be quieter. this town got a big influx of people from new york and went from being a town of mostly old people to a booming mainly hispanic town. There are growing pains but a lot of it comes from the local populatity of drugs.
Hazleton, PAcheap housing
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
Hazleton, PAlots of snow and ice,warm somewhat ok summers
the snow and ice means bad pot-holes through out the city. get a house that faces north as rain and snow seems to come from the south I moved from bergen county nj in 2005
