Linked in/Neat stuff below: Hanover Theater back in news/New use of old York church?
Yorktowne Hotel G.M. Rick Cunningham stands atop the 11-story landmark that is celebrating its 90th birthday this weekend. That’s one grand milestone. This scene was captured at a moment in which discussions were underway about the possibility of making East Market Street two ways. York’s current pattern of one-way streets came into play after World War II. So five years ago, there was talk to change the pattern on East Market, home of the Yorktowne for, well, nine decades. Nothing came of it. The hotel is now for sale, York County Industrial Authority has an agreement – not a commitment – to purchase it, as Gordon Freireich outlines in this York Sunday News column about the Yorktowne. Also of interest: Dancing at the Yorktowne: ‘I … drew it while they were dancing’.
