Nicknamed "The Electric City" for having the nation's first electrified streetcar in 1886, Scranton is leveraging its rich history to attract new interest and investment, especially in the city's historic downtown. Money Magazine recently ranked Scranton as one of the ten fastest growing real estate markets in the country.


The Electric City is home to the New York Yankees AAA team, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, and also the Sno Mountain ski resort and the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain, an amphitheater seating 17,500.


And of course Scranton has Dunder Mifflin, the fictional paper company from the hit NBC sitcom "The Office," which has brought national attention to the city.
