About the header image: December 11, 2013

The header image for this week is a shot of the anchor stores of downtown Wilkes-Barre, Boscov's and Barnes & Noble, decked out for Christmas. I still can't get used to seeing the downtown without the canopies. Unlike a lot of people, I liked and appreciated them. I thought they gave a unifying look to the downtown that spoke beyond the place as a dying rust-belt town trying to keep its head above water. They also served a very  useful purpose in keeping the rain and snow off pedestrians. But the canopies are gone now, and that's a fact of life. This is downtown Wilkes-Barre's new look.

If you have a photo you'd like to see featured as the NEPA Blogs header, send it to us at
