Andy's Angles: The Station


The recent boost to the renovation of the old train station in downtown Wilkes-Barre triggered a trip to downtown Scranton to look at the old passenger station and railroad offices, now a hotel.

This grand building was almost torn down.  Thankfully, people with vision and banks with money stepped in to save it.

I've photographed it dozens of times, but these are the first night shots.

It's a spectacular building, right at one of the entrances to the city and I'm sure there is a "wow" factor for visitors.

I'm sorry I am too young to remember when this building was really popping.

Every time I pass, I think of how lucky we are that it's still around.
