Top Ten: Smokin!


The old Parodi cigar factory on North Main Avenue in Scranton was turned in to apartments earlier this year.

First, I love to see old buildings repurposed.  Few things make me happier.

Second, this could have remained looking like an old brick box, but the lighting takes it over the top.

I took the photo you see above around 5 am on a rainy late August morning, so you get the glow of the sign on the street.

As I said when I posted this for the first time in September, it just blew me away.

To put things in perspective, and to show you how how much work was involved here, above is a demolition picture I took a few years ago.

Tomorrow, it's a morning on the beach.
