Who says things don’t change in York, Pa.?

There’s a lot going on in this York, Pa., Daily Record/Sunday News file photo of the old Stone Container/Smurfit Stone site. York College of Pennsylvania has acquired the former mill buildings, upper right, and rehabbed at least one of them. One of them, the old Philip King house, has been in the eye of preservationists who fear its demise. The Penn Street bridge is in the spotlight because it symbolically and physically connects YCP’s expanding campus and the city. The Codorus Homes, York’s first public housing units along the Codorus at the left edge of the bridge in this photo, face demolition. The greenway along the creek will thus be extended. New public housing has gone up nearby on former Helen Thackston Park land. Who says things don’t change in York, Pa.
