It is the setting for educational institutions, cultural facilities, performance spaces, and government and
community services that serve the region and beyond. It is a home to restaurants and stores and hotels,
to historic districts and beloved parks, and to businesses large and small. It is a living downtown, with more than 4,000 residents. It is both the center of one of the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas, and the civic heart of the Wyoming Valley. Make it Yours!
