Bad Photography Saturday: Freight Station

This is one of our area's treasures.  It's the old railroad freight station on West Lackawanna Avenue in Scranton.

It's also one of our area's tragedies.  The building has been empty for decades.  Plans to put something in it have repeatedly fallen through.

The building is in private hands.  Unlike Wilkes-Barre's Hotel Sterling and train station, this one is buttoned up and doesn't appear to be deteriorating.

Let's hope the old freight station gets developed into something spectacular one of these days.
