Andy's Angles: The Jermyn

I always had mixed feelings on this place.  It's the Jermyn at Wyoming and Spruce in Scranton.

For years, it was one of the city's better hotels.  Great tile work and a spectacular mural in the old Manhattan Room.  The ballrooms were cool, and I spent a few election nights here.

After the hotel closed, it was turned in to apartments, and that's great.

There used to be a mini mart, in the front corner, staffed by some of the nicest people around.  When it closed, management promised something news for the space.  As you can see, it never happened.
