Steamtown Mall Walkway

 Not sure why the walkway remains closed, the Steamtown website says: "For your safety the walkway between Steamtown NHS and the Marketplace at Steamtown mall is closed until further notice." I don't know how this improves my safety, but it sure makes it harder to get to the museum.

 The Lackawanna Avenue Clock still not working, clueless mayor's campaign office is in the background. Broken clocks and illegal dumping clearly not on her list of priorities, which are catering to the politically connected class. One party rule has led to decades of corruption.
