Andy's Angles: Bank

Downtown Wilkes-Barre is filled with some great buildings, and some boring ones, too.  This one is among my favorites.  It's the old First National Bank on Public Square.

The place has been empty for quite a while.  There have been a lot of ideas floated over the years-- like a museum and a business incubator.  I just hope something goes in there.  The building is too beautiful to sit idle.

By the way, they really did know how to build banks back in the day.  This design just screams "confidence and safety."
