Steel Stacks: the ruins of a bygone era

Bethlehem, PA, United States

Flag
On a recent visit to visit my brother in Easton, PA, we stayed in Bethlehem. On Saturday afternoon, we decided to see a movie at Arts Quest, a theater in the Steel Stacks development, a 10 acre campus built on the site of the former Bethlehem Steel plant. The site hosts concerts, festivals, and community events, all within the shadow of the steel stacks of the former plant. After watching the movie, we walked up to the trestle where you can walk along next to the stacks and read the occasional plaque detailing the history of the plant and the process of creating steel.
