  1. Scranton Alumn

    I attended the University of Scranton and spent the best four years of my life there. That doesn’t mean I found the city aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. The city looks like a failed attempt at modernization and 90% of the time it’s a grey sky overcast. There are many other reasons to fall in love with Scranton, but as for it’s “beauty”…not so much…

    Scranton is an amazing city IF! You remove the drug dealers and trash. Replace the local government and fix the potholes…..then, I do agree Scranton is a historically beautiful city.
