You'll also find legions of newer residents from the greater New York City area, many of whom are minorities that commute to the city and make real money, keeping the local bus company, Martz' share holders smiling in the process. Don't bother to subscribe to the local newspaper, the Pocono Record, which should only be purchased in a pinch if your training small pets and desperately need a piddle pad.
School taxes are way high since everyone tries to get friends and neighbors a job with the corrupt school board, where they do very little while making a killing, cranking out some of the dumbest seniors in the western hemisphere; insuring the Walmart in town is always staffed with a full supply of talent.

2. A nice quiet town that has been corrupted by an onslaught of stupid ass New Yorkers. The town is predominantly white but you wouldn't know it looking at the scum that pollutes our streets and retail stores. The area was once the home to small families and older folks and it was an ideal place to have and raise children. Now its full of drugs, crime and murder and a bunch of New Yorkers who think they're cool and can do whatever they want just because they're not from around here and they're bored. GO HOME and leave us alone!
Resident #2: It used to be before the New Yorkers got here.
