Andy's Angles: Overwhelming

This is the University of Scranton's relatively new Center for Rehabilitation Education.  You can find it at Linden and Jefferson.  At 140 feet, it's the tallest building on the U of S campus.

There were concerns the new building would overwhelm the historic Elm Park United Methodist Church, just across the street.

You know what?  The new building is overwhelming, but not as bad as I expected.  You can still admire the history of the old church while appreciating the lines of the big building across the street.

One side of the block has old buildings.  You can find the newer structures on the other side of Jefferson Avenue.  New and old can coexist.
