What a shame they did this. That old ore bridge crane was the last of three that used to feed the blast furnaces 24 hours a day. As an old B.S. worker and Bethlehem resident I feel badly about what the Sands says about our old steel town.
Thanks for the comment I feel it is pretty neat how they incorporated the historical structure into something new. Unfortunately its not just Bethlehem, its America with everything made over seas why, have any jobs here. Everyone living in this country start buying American made including automobiles such as Ford, GM, Chrysler. American cars = American steel = American Jobs... Bring back American appliances that we invented, TVs, Computers, Washers, Dyers, Vacuums all to be American made. Lionel trains were made in America for 100 years but I don't any more Lionel since they moved to China..
Well! It's a good integration of an important structure of the old steel plant.
I think the same.. I've had plenty of people tell me when they see things like this they don't like it. I guess to those select people possibly having it torn down and scrapped would be better just reading from history books or learning about it in a museum would be better. You Gaetan its the same people who hate the rails to trails sure I would love to see those trains still rolling down the line but if the company no longers uses the line and mother nature or other manmade structures destroy the old rail line thats when I feel that we lose something.
