Andy's Angles: Progress

This was taken Thursday morning at the Marketplace at Steamtown in downtown Scranton.  It's what's left of the food court.  Believe it or not, there are a pizza counter and a Sunway still operating here, even though you have to go through a maze of construction to get there.

The goal here is turn this from a standard mall food court, in to a marketplace type destination-- local food and drink, locally made items, etc.

To orient you, the windows looking out on to the Steamtown National Historic Site are off to the left.  The main mall concourse is on the left.

Brick surrounds the supports.  What you're looking at in the center is the beginning of stalls or booths.

It's worth a shot.  Clearly, the old way didn't look.  I just hope it's something really worth visiting rather than flea market fare that you can find in dozens of local locations every weekend.
