Andy's Angles: The Samters Mystery

What happened here?

The Samters building, at Penn and Lackawanna in downtown Scranton was part of the mall development package.  At one time, it was filled with state offices.  Most, if not all, quietly left for other downtown buildings.

Yes, in spite of the 90's renovations, this is still a very old building.  It's filled with potential, but you know the story.  It needs work.  Money is scarce, and I'll probably be here one day soon to watch it get bulldozed.
