Carl's Scranton Area Site

 

I am a native New Yorker who has lived outside of the Pocono Mountains in Scranton, Pennsylvania, for the past 42 years. 

This website is about the Scranton area, friends and family.... some other odds and ends... and lots of pictures!

The concert was part of the "H2O" tour.

All about Scranton:  Scranton has a population of  over 70,000 and is also known as "Steamtown" and "The Electric City."  Below are some pictures of the Scranton from above.

 

The following photos of the City of Scranton were taken in February of 2005.  Since then, the downtown area has come back.  Besides several new buildings, many older historic buildings have been renovated and turned into downtown apartments and condos.

A lot of development is going on in the City of Scranton.. above, a large crane is in place at the  Southern Union Headquarters under construction in the downtown. (photo taken in 2004)

 

The Steamtown National Historic Site was created by an act of Congress in 1986 to preserve and teach the history of steam railroading. The National Park Service preserves the history with programs, a working locomotive shop and roundhouse, seasonal short tours of the yard by train, and seasonal excursions.
