The neighborhood is part of a wide ranging township and is situated sitting atop a summit and drainage divide flanked by two long climbs that are an traversed by local transport infrastructure, railways with an important switching junction within the village, and Pennsylvania Route 54, which collects towns like beads on a string along a particular combination of connected valleys in the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians.

All these places lie within the Southeastern Anthracite Coal Region.
