Andy's Angles: The Globe


It always was The Globe, and it always will be The Globe.

I always think of this place and this time of year-- back to school time.  One stop shopping for just about everything a kid needed.

It's now the Lackawanna County Government Center on Wyoming Avenue in Scranton-- a tribute to drywall and cheap vinyl flooring.

Oddly, I didn't have a big problem with the county's purchase.  It was empty for a long time and there were no signs of interest.  It was so sad to see it vacant.

Unfortunately, from the inside and outside, it's really nothing special.  There was so much potential here, and it's done nothing to revitalize this part of the downtown.
