Tyrone, Pa is a small community that sits between the towns of Altoona and the college of Penn State University of State College; Tyrone is a borough that is made up with a population at 7500. Everything is closed together from Sheetz store to phone and Verizon to downtown shopping. I really enjoy the town besides from the fact it is small, but also decent in rent, decent in prices locally and more.

This town has prioritized corporate interest over small business. That's not good for anyone. Recently however the community has made a genuine attempt at working towards changing that.
Tyrone is an average-sized town with a diverse community. However, there are so many low-income projects which does serve the community. But low income families from elsewhere are brought here to house because family members are a lot of times in a local prison.
