What Bert Has To Say About Scranton--Wilkes-Barre--Hazleton Metro Area

The Scranton area is gaining some ground as a gateway to the Pocono Mountains, a recreational area to the north and east with skiing and watersports. Local museums focusing on industrial heritage, such as the Anthracite Complex and the Steamtown National Historic Site, are excellent models of working historic preservation and education. The location is isolated from big-city amenities and services. There is talk of reviving commuter rail passenger service into New Jersey, which could give the area a big boost as a residential area and base for telecommuters and small business. It will take some time, but perhaps the low cost of living and strategic location relative to major eastern markets will bring the area a long-awaited economic resurgence.
