Goodbye, Ohio Blenders

In a strange effort to transform itself from an "architectural museum" to a craptacular bore, York, Pennsylvania continued its campaign against the "York Triangle," this time dismantling "Ohio Blenders," a profitable agricultural processor. They had to take it using eminent domain. The city is planning to put in residential and commercial development - because, I guess, that's such a lucrative business to be in right now.
Not that Ohio Blenders is an architectural gem or anything, but it certainly added a little variety to the place. The problem, as I see it, is that the entire historic York Triangle area is in danger of being leveled, over time. See my article at Railroad.net, York Won’t Be Timeless Forever, for more information.
