Train Station Saturday: Wilkes-Barre

This one has aggravated me for a long time.

This used to be a train station near downtown Wilkes-Barre.  It was restored to an entertainment destination in the 70's and 80's.  Eventually, they all failed and moved away.  The building was vacant for a long time.  Decay set in.  County government bought it, then realized it didn't have the money to fix it.  More decay.

The building is now in the hands of a private developer, who promises to do something.

Thank Heaven.  This building is too wonderful to lose.
