Took a ride down Nay Aug Av in the Green Ridge section of Scranton yesterday. The remanents of the Von Storch breaker was torn down to make way for a flood control project along the Lackawanna river. The main breaker was torn down in 1948. At the time the breaker boasted the largest rotary dumper, able to dump 6 loaded cars at a time. A few shop buildings remain, but that is all. The slope located across the river was filled/flushed by an OSM project in 1982.
