I do feel Scranton is a little far for a daily commute East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg and Tannersville area are 90 minutes from NYC and that makes it more reasonable. We have a lot of commuters taking the bus and driving, I was one of them for many years. There are some nice homes and some with lakes and streams.
The Pocono Mountains Region have a lot to offer.
Call me and we can discuss your needs.
That's over a 2 hr drive......not exactly commuting distance , but close enough if you want to make a day or overnight trip out of it.........is that what you're looking for?......is that "close enough" to NYC for you?
The bus will take closer to 3 hrs.
will you be commuting for work to Manhattan? Do you prefer bus, car or train?.......my area is about 17 miles away - a 35 min train ride or 40 min bus ride..........
finally - the biggest unanswered question is.................what is your price range?
