Steel Stacks

This is a shot of the stage at Steel Stacks in Bethlehem.  The old blast furnaces serve as the backdrop.

What they've done here is taken an old industrial site, and turned it in to a place for food, art, and entertainment.  There is also plenty of parking.

You just have to wonder what we can accomplish here in our area-- with all those abandoned industrial buildings and warehouses we have.  It'll take a ton of money, and at least in the near future, that money is nowhere to be found.

While the turnaround in Bethlehem is nothing short of spectacular, you have to look at what got us here-- a steel industry that became extinct in the northeast.
