Drive through mahanoy city and you will think you are in a 1985 horror flick. Blight and pollution mark this town.
How you rank this 69 its beyond me. Cost of living A plus? Food is not cheap here! taxes are high! housing is cheap but the houses are falling apart and its mostly row homes. The weather stinks and its a cold and cloudy place. Thehigh school should of been consolidated 25 years ago since population has decreased since then. Alcoholism and drug use is rampant. This town is surrounded by co-generation plant and jails. An0ther terrible ranking your methodology is not good.
