Bethlehem Steel

Extravagance in the little steel city of Bethlehem.
If you go there today, down by the river there are these industrial-age buildings, long, next to the railroad tracks, and a tallish greasy rusting tower. Believe it or not this complex ran until 2003. In the meanwhile, a nearby auxillary building was converted to condos in 1998; the smoke from the aged plant still fouled the air of Lehigh Univ., breeding ground of executives.
