An ass backwards town in Monroe County, Pennsylvania for several centuries and counting with an interesting mix of locals who work for peanuts and have no health insurance, they can usually be found at the Cinder Inn wondering why they are getting priced out of the area. Deeper thinkers here often ponder why outsiders are moving in before realizing someone with a backhoe decided to put a major highway through the center of town awhile back.
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. You can always move here since there's plenty of foreclosures in countless developments to insure any unfortunate potential home buyers with a minimal down payment and pulse there very own Pocono dream home/nightmare in northeast PA.
Resident #1: East Stroudsburg is a corrupt, sorry excuse for a town.
Resident #2: It could always be worse, you could've been born here.
