Since no one actually knows how to pronounce "Wilkes-Berry", "Wilkes-Bar", "Wilkes-Bar-ray" or "Wilkes-Bear", referring to this northeastern Pennsylvania city simply as "the barrio" may avoid a fist fight. Barrio is the Spanish word for neighborhood.
Me and my peeps saw ya at Public Square in the Barrio.
The Barrio has the best Haluski and Perogies, hayna
That Wilkes-Barre Scranton penguin fan
is from the Barrio, hayna
The urban planning in the Barrio is thus: church, bar, church, church, bar, crackhouse, university, bar, church, bar.
