|Along West Chestnut Street • April 5, 2003|
|N. Queen St & W. Chestnut streets • Lancaster City Depot c. 1900|
And after the old depot was razed, until two years ago, stood (??) that lot I'd captured in 2003. Sometime I'll get around to showing the sparkling structure that's been fit into the lots from the Chestnut street curb to behind where that Hertz-signed factory stood. Now the entire street's renewed and filled with period-appropriate new transport, retail, pubs, offices and condos. The gentry's returning to the diverse mix of Lancaster that's constructing new layers atop what archeologists will someday probe.
You can smell ambition and optimism in the air that once hovered above that shabby 2003 lot.
