The region in Northeastern Pennsylvania, where Anthracite coal was or is mined. It is west of the Poconos, east of the Susquehanna River, South of Scranton, and north of The Lehigh Valley. Hazleton and Wikes-Barre are the two center masses of population.
It suffers from mine pollution, poverty, political corruption, severe emigration push, and a virtually absent intellectual community.
If you ever move to the Anthracite Coal Region, you know you fucked up in life.
