I think the city of Williamsport is presented as being rather isolated from the surrounding area. Some additional material on the state would have provided some context. For example, there is no mention of the Pennsylvania Dutch even though they have a small presence in Lycoming County. Although the Pennsylvania Railroad shaped the region, there are only a few clues as to what railroads serviced Williamsport. I would have liked to read more about Williamsport's relationship with Harrisburg, Lancaster, and Philadelphia.
