Penn Furniture

 How long is Penn Furniture, 99 Lackawanna Avenue, going to be allowed to block the sidewalk? Pedestrians are forced into busy Lackawanna Avenue because parts of the building are apparently falling onto the sidewalk. This has been an ongoing problem for well over a month now. Once again citizens are held in contempt by the politically connected. Does Scranton even have a mayor anymore?

 Steamtown Mall a couple Saturdays ago. The virus has really put the kibosh on mall activity. Looks like that sports store is also closed, the stuff is still there, but it hasn't been open in the last month or so. Either that or they're opening later in the day. Those flea market stalls also remain empty.
