Andy's Angles: College Construction Weekend
The U fought to tear down Leahy Hall-- a building that had outlived its usefulness. While it had some history, it was small and old. It was neither architecturally unique or outstanding. Getting rid of it didn't seem like a bad idea. The University of Scranton is perhaps the only entity actually drawing people and money to the city.
I saw the plan and the sketches. It's a lot different in person. Opponents feared the U's new building would overwhelm the neighborhood. They could have a point. We'll have to wait and see how the new building integrates into this part of the city.
