Wilkes-Barre: Jersey Central Station

The Jersey Central Station in Wilkes-Barre, built in 1868 and now owned by the Luzerne County Redevelopment Authority, who paid $5,000,000 for the property in 2005, and has let it decay and become the victim of vandals and thieves since then. This was a big hotel/nightclub development in the 1980's, which used federal tax dollars to redevelop. Where did the taxpayers money go?
