Case in point, the metal bridge that connects Pittston and West Pittston. Name: The Firefighters Memorial Bridge. It used to be the Water Street Bridge.
There is evidence to indicate a woman met an untimely and horrible end beneath this span. In news stories over the weekend, we called it the Water Street Bridge. Here's why. Go to Public Square, and ask 100 people if they know the location of the Firefighters Memorial Bridge. I suspect very few would be able to give you the correct answer. Ask those same people about the location of the Water Street Bridge. I bet you'd get a good number of people who would say "Pittston." There's no disrepect to firefighters intended.
Over the weekend, correct took a back seat to clarity.
