Andy's Angles: The Square


This was going to be this month's blog header, before I went in another direction.    It's the Bicentennial Building on Public Square in downtown Wilkes-Barre.

It's been on the blog before.  While I can't say it's my favorite, I do like it.  It's clean and modern and a sign of the new Wilkes-Barre.  It's decades old and it still looks new in the morning sun.

On the other hand, it's plain and rather robotic.

Significance?  I believe this was the first new development in Wilkes-Barre after the Tropical Storm Agnes flood.  Check your calendars, dear readers.  June marks the 50th anniversary of the flood.

Next time you pass, think of what it stands for.
