Scranton, PA Tour (March 2009)

On the way home from Philadelphia on my March 2009 NYC/Philly trip, the Greyhound bus stopped in Scranton, PA at night time, and I just had to get some pictures of the city that the NBC comedy "The Office" has made popular.

Scranton is a city of 75,000 located in Northeastern Pennsylvania, part of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Metro area, with a population of over 500,000.

Most of these pictures are taken in the downtown area of the city...

I didn't have my tripod with me, so I apologize for some of the blurriness, but for not having a tripod, the pictures turned out pretty good I thought.

St. Peter's Cathedral

Theatre Downtown (looks like a night club/bar by the advertisements)

Hope you all enjoyed. Scranton's a cool city!!!

Wow, nice tour of Scranton. I have driven past it on I-81, and even stopped there on the greyhound, several times but never got a good look at the place. So thanks for this! Your first pics made me think this was a very dismal place, but then the later ones made it look really cool and certainly worth another look.
