Hmmmm....well, let's see...I met the sweetest person ever the night after I moved in...but, you are already very familiar with that story...so, I'm guessing that you mean other than that.
Overall, I'd say people were friendly. There were nice folks, and a few jerks like anywhere else. The most interesting thing about the people I met here is how many are heading to jail. I must say, I have never lived in a town with this level of corruption.
But, from a wider perspective, having lived in more than my share of towns, I have observed that the bigger the town, the more accepting of outsiders they are. I attritube this to the fact that in a bigger town, people are more used to people moving in and out. Small towns tend to be much more close knit, and suspicious of outsiders.
All in all, I enjoy living in Wilkes-Barre. There are just enough things to do here, without being overly congested like NY, or even Allentown. I would consider it a big, small town. In a good way.
