“The mind determines what is possible. The soul surpasses it.” – Pilar Coolinta
Welcome to the Electric City! I decided to throw down my root for a few days here, because… well, it just felt right. Here are some photos:
The television program, "The Office" is set here (although you probably knew that)
Scranton used to be called the Anthracite City.
Vice President Joe Biden was born here.
Scranton has a Houdini Museum.
In 1887, Scranton had one of the first electric trolleys.
A big coal town, that has had to find others ways to survive.
Tommorrow, I will write about a small theater in town named the Vintage Theater.
