I can't believe they named a city after the one in the hit TV show, The Office.

      I live here and was not amused by this at all. There's a lot more here than The Office. Two major Universities in the Commonwealth, a medical school, the Scranton Dioceses is the head of the Catholic Church, the home of the Yankees AAA farm team.... the list goes on and on. He was only LOOKING for The Office. This doesn't represent Scranton AT ALL! Garbage video!

    While this video is funny. What makes scranton sad is the fact that the city has been left in so much financial turmoil because of the fact that it was an industry town. Not much need for coal or steel nowadays, and with 3 Wal-marts within 15 miles of scranton, the local business economy has essentially collapsed. The economy of scranton isnt going to "go down" when people stop liking the office because 1. People dont like the office 2. The economy is already in fucking shambles. Nobody in scranton talks about the office either. The only people who make this city about the office are... well.... Glad you didn't enjoy your brief ride-through, please dont come back to perpetuate this shit anymore.

      I was going to say, no one in Scranton talks about the office. The only times I hear about the office are when I go out of the state to New York or New Jersey or even at my own college. This city is in fucking shambles because of the leaders here and corruption out the ass. The office is only huge to the people trying to make a profit off of it. I’m glad that he has his opinion on Scranton but maybe he should’ve done more research about it before coming.

  • Mdawg

    as a scranton resident for my entire life so far, i can say firsthand that the office is a plague to this city to the point where people who dont live here are like "woah scranton is a real place?!!?" and yes, yes it is and we hate living here and dont care about your references or jokes about the show. that being said scranton has some hidden gems and can be an alright place sometimes

      I lived in Scranton just a few blocks away from the Penn Paper building for 10 years. It was not the best place I ever lived and it has gone down hill since. The last time I was at the Mall at Steamtown it was like a ghost town. I'm still in NEPA but out in the country. It is a beautiful area.

  • Nyx

    I have been living and working in this area for my whole life....I have not seen anyone from Scranton or the surrounding areas wear Dunder Mifflin merch in the past 10 years- maybe longer. I dont know how all that merch isnt on clearance by now 🤣

  • T. Wienckowski

    Scrantonian here, you literally only see Office related things downtown. City's been dying hard for the past few decades (the population is half what it was at its peak in the 20's and 30's), so Office references have become the equivalent of throwing twigs in the furnace to keep a train going.

    • Jenny

      Abingtonian here lol (not quite scrantonian) but you are right. It’s just a few local businesses in Scranton and I don’t blame them for trying to get some coin out of it. The city has been going to hell for a very long time, and not even one of the most popular television shows can save it.

      @Maxxx Modelz I remember hearing stories from my grandparents that Scranton was considered on par with NYC for a while in the 20's and 30's. The saying was for theatre shows that if it did well in Scranton, it would do well on Broadway.

    • donamick

      Well I've been here my entire life and Scranton is in the history books for a few different reasons but Scranton was certainly something before the office was recorded for god sakes

      Scranton was a pretty big deal back in the 1920's too. They were one of the first cities to have trolly cars, and they had a huge economic boon from the Coal Mining industry. Once the coal mining left the area, Scranton became a slum. Then The Office TV show happened and it started booming again! Then The Office went off the air and Scranton is falling apart once again. LOL. Maybe something else will save it in the next few decades, but it's in really bad shape. I should know. I lived there almost my whole life. LOL

  • NinjinBruhඞ🥕カート

    Having only heard about The Office (never watched it) i can say that they definitely milked Scranton beyond the maximum sane amount. We are essentially witnessing a town becoming depressing and slightly dystopian for most casuals because of a popular sitcom which plot takes place in. That's why many sitcom writers come up with fictional locations, and fictional cities, so no casual person will say "Dunder Mifflin baffles me" when they visit a town. And tbh I would rather go to the trolley museum than anywhere else mentioned in this video. Too much overhype

    • LaserDotTV

      At least it’s not Los Angeles. Can’t get much more dystopian than that.

    • Liamblub*_

      Scranton was always dystopian like and crappy

    • dabrandt

      Scranton was already depressing and slightly dystopian since the coal mines shut down in the late 1950s... might as well make a couple bucks off of it

    Its the Rust Belt, every "major" city in this area is destroyed. I live in Binghamton the next closest "major" city just 1 hour away from Scranton and go there often. There's nothing left, no growing industry, tons of abandoned houses and businesses, and half the population than there was in the 60s/70s. But if you find a decent paying job in the Rust Belt, its super cheap; cheap housing, cheap groceries, cheap flights at the airport, short commutes because the infrastructure is made to support triple the population, good schools, and close enough to cities like Philly or NYC to take a short drive.

    been living here for a while, someone said something about the walmart stores in the area, they are huge hinderance to local business even opening in my opinion. Not to mention they put a fucking mall dead in the center of the city, so who's going to be able to compete with the walmarts and a mall....not many people. That mall should be torn down turned into larger buildings with decent housing and shops underneath like most cities do. This city also has a terrible public transportation system which is laughable because as far as i know at one point scranton was excellent there, they had electric trolleys taking you where you wanted to go in the city. The place is in need of serious finacial investment, in my opinion the best thing they could do is re-connect the train tracks to new york city. That will bring a massive boom to the area of people looking to leave nyc like they do now but it would have cheaper and quicker travel.

  • Tyler

    As someone who currently lives there, the area around the college is like a warzone nowadays. A month or so ago some people broke into a student's house and stole her puppy, a few weeks ago a man was robbed at gunpoint, before that even more people were robbed, and multiple houses have been burglarized or vandalized. Not the best place tbh...

    Most people that live here don't obsess over the office and it doesn't come up in normal everyday conversation. Hell, I haven't talked about the office in maybe five years. There is a lot of cool stuff that doesn't involve anything about the office. The only reason that he saw all of this stuff about the office is because he went searching for the touristy spots that cater to people coming from out of the area to look at office stuff. Also, there aren't many stores in the mall that carry office merch, so I don't know what that's about.

    i’ve lived in Scranton most of my life. it is a poor city ran by corrupt people with very little to no job opportunity. the comment at the end of the video about how the city’s economy will crumble is a little too close to home because it has been crumbling since the mines were shut down. the only thing it has going for it now is the university (which i go to lol). that’s why they are willing to cling so tightly to the past

    As someone who has spent most of my life there, I'm not there anymore, The Office really is the place's only defining thing besides maybe trains. The rest is just boring buildings and a mall that they renamed to a marketplace then slapped an aquarium in it.

    All the office memorabilia just started popping up a few years ago. A few years ago their was a news station running a story about how the Lackawanna visitors/ tourism dept. were getting complaints from tourists because there wasn't any Office related merchandise to be bought in the city. I guess these businesses ran with it. Nice video tho. I hope you enjoyed your visit here and learned some interesting facts about our area.

    LOL. As someone who grew up in the area and had lived in Scranton almost his whole life, I can confirm this is all true. Scranton was in its second heyday when The Office was having its big run on TV, and the city was actually doing quite well on the surface. Streets were paved, new sidewalks were put in, and the downtown area was bustling with shoppers and tourists. Now that the run is over, Scranton is in financial crisis and selling Office merch is something businesses in the area are clinging on to for survival. It isn't working though as the local shopping centers are all out of business, the mall downtown is a shell of itself with government businesses and other strange things inside, most of the downtown is abandoned and falling apart, and the previous mayor is either in jail or on his way there for illegal practice. Crime is on the rise, and the only thing still profiting in Scranton is the University.

    Scrantonian here you missed the giant mural of Dwight at On&On. Also there is an office weekend that the city has started where they bring in actors from the show for a convention(more gift shops have cropped up bc of it). There is also a dundee that the show presented to the city when it was ending. And of course there was the free office wrap party when the show ended where cast members came to the city. I've never watched the show but whenever I travel & people ask where I'm from I get "like from the office?!?! I love the office"

In fact on their Facebook page they proudly rep "official office merch hub" or something along those lines. And I also know I've seen people taking pictures with the Scranton sign in the mall. I remember when the sign was actually out on the highway. Now that strip of highway is called the "Biden Expressway" because that's another thing Scranton has to make its personality about with Biden living here when he was a kid 😂
