Changing Times; Losing a Piece of History.

This is a view of Bethlehem Steel taken from the bridge last Spring on a hazy and overcast day. It's being torn down to make way for a Casino in hopes of bringing in revenue and more jobs to the city. From what I understand they will preserve some of the Plant including the Blast Furnace as a memorial or museum to the Steel Industry which was such an important part of that area.

I was back there a few weeks ago and there is a lot more demolition activity and a lot less of the old steel works was left.

I don't live near there but depending on who you speak to the locals seem to have mixed feelings about the project. I guess time will tell.

I've still been pretty busy and not able to spend much time visiting and replying. I hope to catch up soon.

Coming back to AM3 after a long hiatus. I hope to be more active in the coming months.
