The people of this city are not very open-minded. Not only are the people of the town a bit dull, but there isn't much to do in this small town. Hopefully, I can move away from here after college and live somewhere with more life.
Great place to live a very affordable.
Easy commutes, 50 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh.
Great shoppingbin the area,, town or country living
Easy and short trips to 79, 80 and the Pa turnpike.
