Recent pics from about town . . .

 Gone . . .

 replaced by Cooper's Comics & Collectibles . . .

 Vape at Goose Vapes on North Fourth.

 Liberty on Locust
Two Mr. Libertys because we have twice the liberty in Trump's America.
Don't we?

 And as the internet has told us, snakes can't really do that.

A banner that overstayed its welcome

 A tree grows in Avenue H.

 Work continues at the former Long's Funeral Home at Ninth & Chestnut.

 Yep, he really parked there.

 Well, that's one way to get the drywall in.

 Park properly!

 A bird in hand is worth a whole bunch in the bush.

    1. Exactly!!! Represents a time when immigrants entered our country legally and assimilated unlike today when it is acceptable to illegally enter our country and burden the taxpayer (which is a dying bread) to support them.

  3. Is that tattered banner part of the new main street or streetscape that we are paying the consultant Ms. Denlinger for?

  4. Regarding the urban blight that is Hotel Locust, turn the keys over to Don Murphy. I'm sure he can turn it into something productive. Unimaginable that it has been left to sit looking like it does. In the first three blocks of Locust Street we have buildings that are awful looking. As per the other comment here, what has happened to this main street program?

  5. great pics! not sure where this new code dept is in reference to the tattered banner, the tree in the avenue, etc. with ALL these new officers-one would think that they would take turns and WALK the downtown beat EVERY day looking for trash and rubbish, dog waste on sidewalks, properties definitely NOT up to code. guess someone forgot to pass this info on!

    1. One would have to be blind not to see these eyesores. Code department has been turning a blind eye to many things for years. It's who you're friends with that really counts in this borough.
