    I ran across this site while doing some research and thought it was a pretty cool site. Its hard to picture a city this size just sitting completely empty.

    I've seen that once or twice in the past. Indeed, it is eerie. However, that's what fallout will do.

    I thought the story about road-tripping through the city was really cool. I have done alot of industrial ruins/abandoned building walk throughs and they can get really creepy but that just seems like it would be unnerving to be in an empty city.

    TSTONE,

    I also recommend taking a look at her Serpent's Wall piece.

    And, check out http://www.undergroundminers.com. They're a local group here. NePA was once the center of the anthracite world, and moreover, of US industrial production since the fuel for the factories started here. Very few structures remain, but mines and one breaker still stand. They truly attest to the strength of this area 75 - 100 years ago.

    The photos of the 'Avondale' ruins are about 5-10 minutes from where I live.

    The irony of these two sites - neither could have existed without the other. Coal fueled these factories, and these factories kept the miners employed.

    When WW1 (and partially WW2) came around, they both kept working, but with a different goal in mind.

    Great site (and I'm still looking at it)!
