this place is one of my favorites I've ever been...I don't go back as often since I got nabbed for trespassing while photographing the Bethlehem Steel Mill, but here are some shots from this year that I really like.

and also, I was wondering if anyone knows the exact date, or at least year that the St Nick closed. I often wonder why so much is bing put into restoring the Huber Breaker, when it would be much easier to restore this one. Nothing against the Huber, but it's been vandalized worse and has less machinery intact.

this one is from about 2 weeks ago, after we had a little snow

this is the powerhouse, also from 2 weeks ago

The next 3 are from mid July:

there were 2 vandals there that day, throwing rocks at windows and stuff...but they didn't know I was upstairs and I started throwing coal chunks, rocks and random pieces of rubble at them. After looking around confused for a minute they took off.

The rest of these are from various times from Jan-March:

I hope you enjoy them, I have many more but I'm not gonna post a million in one thread.
