    Don't know if this is the same address:

    From a history of Scranton: 

    Scranton School Administration building 425 Washington Ave. Designed and built by Lewis Hancosky, Jr., in 1911 in the Victorian Gothic style, this ornate structure continues to serve as the headquarters of the Scranton School District.

    My paternal grandfather immigrated first to Scranton then settled in Dunmore. I have a fascination with all things roots related but what really puzzles me with pouring over passenger lists is so many Rusyns putting as final destination 425 S. Washington Ave., Scranton. I even drove there and there is nothing there. I believe it was the flat lands and maybe flooded at some point. I know St, John's Byzantine Catholic church stands overlooking  it. 

     What was there and why so many Rusyns from all these different ships and different years  listed this as there final destination?        Any ideas on this?
