Top Ten: Destruction

A huge tire warehouse in Scranton was destroyed in a spectacular fire back in August.

I didn't go there during the fire.  I did stop by a few days later, as the building smoldered and demolition was about to begin.

It wasn't the prettiest building in Scranton, but it did have a lot of history.  It's now just an empty lot, ripe for development.  We'll see what happens here in 2016.  The site is in an industrial/commercial area, several blocks from downtown.  It doesn't mean something interesting and attractive can't go here.

The tire business has bounced back nicely.  The company has secured warehouse space in the Keystone Industrial park, while an adjacent retail building is open for business again.

Tomorrow:  a little nature.
