East Stroudsburg Real Estate – First, lets understand that homes in East Stroudsburg are grouped into two areas. The East Stroudsburg Boro and The East Stroudsburg School District. 

The first is a couple square miles centered around downtown, the University and The Medical Center. Homes in the second, the School District / postal delivery area can go as far as 18-20 miles from the central downtown area. This second group is still considered East Stroudsburg, but might actually be in other neighborhood areas i.e. Marshalls Creek, Bushkill, Analomink, Wooddale etc.
