Andy's Angles: The Bicentennial Building
This has to be the other-- the Bicentennial Building. The bicentennial was only four years after the water went down. The building isn't anything architecturally unique. It's just a white box, but it does make a strong statement. I was never sure it fit on the square, but they were going for modern at the time, and modern is what they got.
In the 70's, it was home to a WNEP Wilkes-Barre newsroom. A new and bigger one was established here a few years ago-- just across the lobby from the old one. In fact, I was working out of the Wyoming Valley Newsroom when I took this photo, early on Memorial Day morning.
