Pics of Wilkes-Barre since 2004 #3

They had been talking about this promised amenity---an intermodel center---since I was knee high to a culm bank. Er, something like that.

Anywho, when this thing long-delayed by construction issues loaded with cost overruns was finally completed, 752 parking spaces were added to the downtown mix. Follow me here, 752 additional parking spots. Yowza!

No more buses or taxicabs precluding us from parking on Public Square. Even the Martz buses will be routed under the massive complex that, at first glance, reminded me of New York's Port Authority. The point being, this facility has a noticeably big city feel to it.

By comparison, the City of Hazleton recently cut the ribbon on it's new intermodel complex, but it's a glorified snack bar that brought with it no additional parking options. None.

Say it with me...752.
